EVK ABAS ThinLine
EVK ABAS ThinLine (TL) is an inductive metal scanner for the use in sensor-based sorting machines for detection and sorting of metals. The sensor can be mounted under a conveyer belt and delivers spatially resolved information of conductive material in the material flow. The metal scanner produces binary information that drives a corresponding I/O module and subsequently ejection units. In combination with the EVK proprietary I/O system, EVK ABAS TL offers a complete solution to machine builders for detection and sorting of metal particles.
Smart Metal Scanner
The EVK ABAS TL inductive metal sensor provides spatially resolved information about ferrous and non-ferrous metal particles in a bulk material stream. The metal scanner is mounted under a conveyor belt and operates in real time, fully automated and was developed specifically for industrial applications. Especially in areas of sensor-based sorting and inspection, the sensor is thus used to visualize and detect the electrical conductivity properties of materials and transmit precise sorting commands.
The sensitivity of a metal scanner defines the required size of a metal particle to generate an output signal. Note that the distance between the metal object and the sensor influences the sensitivity of the sensors.

The inductive metal sensor EVK ABAS TL is used for the recovery of metal in automotive scrap, in the removal and recovery of metals in polymer, or glass sorting, as well as in the recycling of construction and demolition waste. Metallic foreign bodies can also be detected for example in wood.

of our applications
EVK combines data from different sensors e.g. metal sensors with hyperspectral or color cameras. The key data extracted from the results serve as a basis for further process-relevant decisions. Materials can be classified based on their color, shape, size, chemical composition, and conductivity, and, if desired, sorted or ejected in real-time.
