Reliable double sheet control in metal processing

A supplier to the automotive industry processes (e.g. shapes) metal blanks for vehicle body components. For this purpose, a robot lifts a metal blank from a stack using a vacuum sucker and feeds the blank into a shaping press. As the metal sheets are coated with oil on both sides, several blanks can stick to each other when lifted from the stack of sheets. If this is the case, transport of the metal blanks must be stopped immediately in order to prevent major damage to the shaping die of the press.
