To enable complex undercuts in die foundry, molds are typically fitted with slides within the tool. After the foundries have hardened, a reliability check must be made to determine whether the slide has reached its end-of-travel so that the foundries can be pressed from the mold without causing damage. Due to the high temperatures, standard sensors will not work here. With their mechanical limit switches rated up to +180 °C, Balluff offers an economical and durable solution for precise slide checking. These eliminate time-consuming failures and the associated costs. To protect the connection, use a Balluff high-temperature cable.
