387SCT Short Can Sensor

9/11-387 SCT-xx

Provides superb and reliable control capabilities to any wall ironing bodymaker

  • Short can and tear-off detection
  • Calibrates to different punch types
  • Allows ‘mixed’ tooling, e.g. ceramic punch with steel nose

New Kit With Interface Module

The original 387 sensor is now obsolete. The new 387SCT offers, as near as possible, a direct replacement for the old sensor. When the 387SCT is supplied for the first time, it comes with a kit which includes a new interface module (213-10766-00) with its own interconnect cable that needs to be wired between the sensor and the Bodymaker Control Module.

Once the new kit has been fitted, you do not need to replace the interface module when replacing the 387SCT sensor.

Smart Systems for Aluminum Cans

Aluminum canstock is extremely difficult to detect on nickel carbide punches because the electromagnetic signatures are very similar. The 387SCT smart sensor is ideal for this situation because it has a built in microprocessor that reads and stores the signal profile of each new punch fitted to the bodymaker.

Bodymaker Control Modules

The 387SCT sensor is used together with a choice of bodymaker control modules (BCM387 or BCM500) that interface directly with the press control system to discriminate between aluminum can stock and a range of punch materials, including ceramics and nickel based carbides.

These sensors perform reliably on the majority of known carbide punches, provided the magnetic permeability of the punch material remains stable in working conditions. Factors such as temperature variation can affect magnetic properties.
