Press Shop - Metal press with tool identification

To function properly, the large metal presses must always have the correct tools inserted. An automatic identification system using RFID prevents errors. Turck's RFID system BL ident provides the required operating distances and high protection types, while Turck's inductive proximity switches verify the correct positioning of the metal sheets in the press.

The combination of RFID and inductive proximity switches ensures smooth production workflows and prevents costly down times. Read/write heads and proximity switches can both be integrated in the same Turck I/O solution.
