  • Precise roll gap control with position sensors

    Jan 11, 2022
    Processing metals is a very harsh business. There is a lot of heat involved to melt and cast the metal to be able to work with it and roll it. The Italian company Danieli is an international player in the field of metal processing and their machines can be found all around the globe. Among their wide range of machines and systems designed for the metal industry are rolling mills. In those mills, the metal is processed so that it gets thin and flat. Mr. Stefano Martinis, Engineering Manager at Danieli, explains how rolling mills operate, what role the position sensors from Temposonics are playing and how they help to optimize the metal production.

  • The 5th Generation – The History of the R-Series

    Nov 18, 2021
    The new generation of the R-Series has the suffix V. Because the R-Series V is not only supposed to differ from its predecessor R-Series in its improved features, but also in its name. The character V does not stand for the 22nd letter of the alphabet but for the Roman number V = 5. But why V or 5? This question is answered by Dr Olaf Kissing, Product Manager Industrial Sensors at Temposonics.

  • The right angle - how position sensors support cambering processes

    Sep 21, 2021
    Within the production of metal plates, press brakes ensure that the metal gets the right shape. Temposonics linear position sensors play an important role in this, as they can be used to control the pressure on the metal and the movement of the press. How this works is explained in the following text.
