Detection of plates from long distances

A robot grips rear panels from a stack and attaches them to the washing machine. Despite its small size, the PowerProx Mini Distance MultiTask photoelectric sensor detects the shiny sheets to be gripped, even from a great distance. The photoelectric sensor also has an excellent capability for coping with large angles and small parts.
