SEVEN COMMON PROBLEMS THAT OMRON SENSORS CAN FIX
Omron sensors are tailored to specific needs that are common in the
automotive industry, particularly with respect to stamp and weld
applications. Tell us what your specific issue is, and we'll suggest a
sensor type to help. Here are a few of the common problems our
automotive customers face.
1. Experiencing downtime caused by sensor collisions? The
extended sensing distances of the E2EW and E2E NEXT prox sensors
help reduce sensor damage and boost flexibility by letting you imbed
sensors for better protection or move targets further away
2. Seeking a better way to accommodate aluminum part
presence detection? Omron E2EW sensors not only achieve longer
sensing distance than any other metal face sensor in the industry, but
they do so for both iron and aluminum.
3. Having problems with slag buildup on sensors? The proprietary
slag resistance coating of the E2EW repels slag better than traditional
coatings and is resilient to any scrubbing that is necessary to clean off
the buildup. IO-Link can also help identify when it's necessary to clean
the sensor surface.
4. Difficulty
locating small parts or
holes? The E3AS-HL
photoelectric sensors can use both spot and line beams to detect
challenging parts.
5. Frustrated with having to set up separate emitters and
receivers to detect oddly shaped or colored objects? The E3AS
photoelectric sensors offer two different technologies to eliminate the
need for a second unit, be it a receiver or reflector. The E3AS-F uses
time-of-flight (TOF) technology and a wide spot beam to ensure that
incident light is returned to the sensor and detected regardless of target
color.

* E2EW sensors lead the industry in metal face prox sensor sensing
distances, pushing the boundaries of what was thought possible. They
also accommodate mixed metal production lines with factor 1 sensing.
*E3AS-HL CMOS photoelectric sensors use proprietary algorithms and
a specialized lens to detect challenging parts. The option to use a spot
or line beams adds additional flexibility to selectively detect different
objects or parts of objects.
*The E3AS-F family's time of flight technology and IR laser light source

6. Having trouble with gross part detection involving grooved or
rough surfaces? The spot/line beam options of the E3AS-HL can help
with this as well.
7. Looking to position parts at longer distances with a high
degree of precision? The E3AS-HL sensors use a small spot laser
beam that can detect pins or holes to help in part positioning. They also
include a feature that lets you set narrow detection windows.
THREE OVERARCHING BENEFITS OF OMRON'S SENSING
PORTFOLIO
Omron sensors push the boundaries of sensing and environmental
resistance to outperform in automotive stamp and weld applications.
Here we'll take a look at some of the reasons why this sensing portfolio
is unique in its ability to support automotive manufacturers.
1. Advanced sensing technologies that promote flexibility
From exceptionally long sensing distances to techniques that allow for
the detection of grooved, multicolor or otherwise complex parts,
Omron sensors support production line flexibility by making it possible
to use the same sensors on multiple targets and recess sensors farther
back within tooling to avoid collisions and slag buildup.
