Improves Presence Sensing in Automotive Applications


Low-profile weld nut sensor is a compact solution for applications that require a reliable detection for the presence or absence of a nut welded to sheet metal on various vehicle components.


Its low-profile design uses magnetic inductive technology and can be simply programmed to detect the presence of a metallic nut. An optional teach pendant can be used to program the sensor to differentiate between the sheet metal material and the weld nut. When the nut is properly placed, the sensor sends a signal to the PLC, which allows the robotic welder to weld the nut to the sheet metal.


Other sensors in this series will sense nut diameters of 6-12 mm and 10-20 mm, respectively, and are available with integral M12 connectors. All Turck nut sensors are IP67 rated.


Highlights of the weld nut sensor:

  • measures 61 mm
  • probe tip diameter of 4 mm
  • accommodates down to a 5 mm weld nut
  • titanium nitride coated probe for greater strength and protection in harsh applications
  • cable version includes a robust TPE-style jacket with a molded M12 connector for flexible mounting possibilities, and a four-way LED for visibility from multiple sides
