Double Blank Analyzer

Double Blank Analyzer

Recent trends in vehicle manufacturing found automotive stampers faced with the need to process increasingly thicker blanks while working within smaller size constraints.

Our double blank detection sensors prevent damage to dies and presses by detecting multiple blanks during the load sequence. Contact style sensors detect multiple blanks in the destacker, allowing early rejection and removal.

The newest IMI Norgren double blank analyzer, (EDBA) are EtherNet/IP capable, while still maintaining the industry's fastest response times and most durable system!
