Choosing the Best Optical Measurement Sensor for Your Application

Join this webinar to discover technologies, differences and application examples for optical measurement sensor technologies: confocal, laser triangulation and 2D/3D profile.

Date: June 18, 2020
Time: 1 PM EDT (10 AM PDT / 7:00 PM CEST)
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


This webinar explains different technologies, restrictions and differences of the following technologies: confocal chromatic sensors, laser triangulation sensors (and even time of flight sensors) and laser profile sensors including the innovative blue laser technology. All these sensors are used for measurements with high precision, stability and high measuring rates.

Attendees will learn the operating principles of optical measuring sensors for displacement, position, thickness, gap, profile and 2D/3D dimension with just one sensor. Various animations and graphics show detailed application examples and give important tips for choosing the right technology.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the metrology fundamentals and basics of optical measurement
  • Understand the measurement principles, advantages and even restrictions of confocal chromatic, laser triangulation and 2D/3D laser profile scanners
  • Find out the differences between the sensor technologies
  • Learn which innovative technologies - such as blue laser sensors - can be used for displacement, profile, 2D/3D dimension or thickness measurement
