Nozzle Detection for the TOUGH GUN™ TT3 and TT3E Reamer uses a proximity sensor mounted on the side of the reamer that can be used independently of the ream cycle. The robot positions the front end of the MIG gun close to the sensor to detect the presence of the nozzle. If the nozzle is present, a signal is then sent back to the robot controller or PLC.
A nozzle detect system can help alert maintenance personnel that the nozzle is no longer present before a weld is attempted. This helps to reduce rework and scrap caused by welding without a nozzle.
