Workstation stopper (AS)
The workstation stopper (AS) can be used in combination with a workstation or a corner station. When used in connection with a workstation, it brings the workpiece carrier (WT) to a halt by the rear stop plate when the workstation is occupied (sensor information: workpiece carrier in the pre-stopper position). A second sensor is able to recognise when the workpiece carrier leaves the pre-stopper position. When used in connection with a corner station, the workstation stopper brings workpiece carriers (WT) moving along the transverse section to a halt by the rear stop plate, preventing them from travelling onto the transfer unit. As soon as the transfer unit is available, a sensor can detect when the workpiece carrier leaves the stopping station.
