Nozzle Detection Option for TOUGH GUN TT3 and TT3E Reamer Robotic Nozzle Cleaning Stations

April 28, 2017

Nozzle detect shown installed on TOUGH GUN TT3E reamer

An improvement has been made to the nozzle detect option for our TOUGH GUN® TT3 reamer. This same option is also now available on our TOUGH GUN TT3E reamer.

This new nozzle detect uses a proximity sensor mounted on the side of the reamer that can be used independently of the ream cycle and is compatible with any nozzle size. 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.
