Hammer Head Accessory
The Hammer Head accessory for the CS-5000 product line was created to solve the
problem of a wandering loop.
The Hammerhead accessory broadens the effective beam of our standard CS-5000
transducer. This is extremely helpful when the loop saddle location changes. Set up
correctly for a full coil, the loop sensor fails to operate properly when the coil reaches
core, as the beam is deflected.
With the Hammerhead, there is always a working transducer element over the saddle,
regardless of the shift that occurs as the coil dwindles. Shifting loop saddles occur even
when there’s a straightener involved. If the cascade rolls of the straightener and press
feed sit at different levels, the loop shifts laterally as well as vertically with each feed of
the press. Further, variances in stock thickness can change where the valley of the loop
is located from job to job.
The hammerhead can be installed on CS-5000 stands you already have. If you have an
application with a loop that shifts dramatically, ask about the hammerhead option.
