Collision Sensor for Plasma Cutting.
When a plasma cutting torch is attached to a height sensor or an arm via a collision protection device, vibrations generated by the plasma cutting process can cause the torch head to oscillate, resulting in a poor quality or “wavy” cut.
Solution in reach.
Applied Robotics’ pneumatic collision sensor is designed specifically for plasma cutting. It incorporates a non-compressive metal-to-metal seal that holds the unit rigid during the laser and plasma cutting process. Air pressure is adjustable to ensure correct breakaway threshold for each application.
