Position Sensor Preforming Machine Tool

The position sensor preforming machine tool is used to cut and preform position sensors to integrate them into modules and electronic circuits. These sensors, or transistors, are delivered in pack by manufacturers such as: Infineon, Honeywell, Cherry, Tru components, PIC or NXP or individually on reseller sites.

Position sensors – what are they?

The position sensor is a transistor that reacts to the magnetic field. This allows to distinguish movement and position. These non-contact detection sensor require other external elements and can withstand extreme environments for automotive applications.

Position sensors are often used for the detection of multipolar magnets for speed detection, motor switching or position coding. More information about the position sensors.


What is a hall effect sensor?


A Hall effect sensor is used to measure the variation of a magnetic field. The sensor is an active sensor i.e., it can process a digital as well as an analog signal. It is usually equipped with three pins. However, this is not a distinguishing feature of the sensor.

A Hall effect sensor is the most common sensor for measuring strong magnetic fields. It is also used in brushless motors as a contactless position sensor. It detects the change in magnetic field when a magnetic part passes through, arranged in such a way that it represents the image of the poles of a machine or the poles of the rotor.

In mechanics, Hall effect sensors also allow the speed or position of a part to be detected. Electronic musical instrument keyboards and keys are equipped with hall effect sensors so that the dynamics of the press can be taken into account.

Some tablets and smartphones or even different models of laptops are equipped with a Hall effect sensor to detect the closing or opening of a flap cover.


Preforming machine – how does it work?


The preforming machine is used to cut and bend these position sensors to weld them on electronic modules and circuits. Automated or not, these machine tools are most often used by automotive suppliers where we can find more than a hundred of these sensors in one vehicle.

MGA Technologies cutting and preforming machine


MGA Technologies preforming machine tool has been specifically designed to meet the cutting and bending requirements of pre-weld position sensors. Totally automated, it allows many packed sensors to be preformed while guaranteeing regular cutting and forming.

MGA Technologies, specializes in custom-made machine tools for pharma, biotech and automotive industries, offers a proven machine with an ease of use thanks to modular, scalable and fully interchangeable tools.

The position sensor preforming machine developed by MGA Technologies allows companies that want to bring a clear improvement to their production processes. Preforming and calibrated cutting on line are guaranteed by the use of this machine.

The particularity of this machine is to be very compact. Its integration in a fully robotized or semi-automatic assembly line is therefore easier. This allows companies to save time.

It is also possible for companies to interconnect it with their existing machines. The machine also offers many configuration possibilities: shuttle, seals, or simple belt conveyor.
