METROL specialize in manufacturing Tool Setters & Precision Positioning Switches

Ultra precision position Swhitches  Metrol

Positioning Switch [CS]

Mutual interference
doesn’t occur!

Slim design, High cost performance!
The best-selling precision positioning switches with a wide variety of shapes.

Reasons to choose Positioning Switch

M5 slim design switches at reasonable price.

The precision machine type not causing a mutual interference, unlike proximity sensors, can detect stably by narrow pitch.

Eliminate costly intermediate actuators and design the machine compact!

Positioning Contact Switches need no dogs or intermediate actuators by the measuring element of the switch customized for the detected object.
This enables reducing cost and downsizing machines.

Customization of the gauge head
Possible
Can be customized for the shape of the detected object

Impossible

Contact life time 10 million 100,000-150,000 None
(Many elements damaged due to overcurrent)

Disadvantages of contact type

  • Untouchable objects such as liquid or soft objects cannot be detected.
  • The takt time might be longer because a switch takes time to touch a workpiece.
  • Measuring range gets narrower compared to non-contact type due to detection by touching workpieces.

【 Metrol’s switches 】

Application

Positioning in the production line

The machine type without mutual interference can be installed by a narrow pitch.

Positioning of the XY table

Higher positioning accuracy at the same price as a proximity sensor.

Detecting the starting position of machines

Controlling the starting point of machines by 5 μm repeatability.

Open-Close confirmation of the brake friction pad

Stable detection of 0.5 mm or less of slight movement.

Detection of the conveyed object

Miniaturize the machine by installing the switch in a ball transfer.

Positioning of the metal sheet in spot welding

A mechanical type can realize stable positioning even under harsh working conditions subject to sputtering.
