Body Shop – Detection of Welding Nuts

Nuts are often welded onto metal parts to permanently attach components, but optoelectronic sensor technology for the detection of nuts often fails due to light reflection or oil film on the lens. 

The solution is Turck's unique welding nut sensor, which inductively detects the nut and affixes it simultaneously. The welding nut is placed on the sensor pin and welded to the reverse of the metal sheet by the welding head.
