In terms of their size, accuracy and measuring rate, the scanCONTROL series of laser scanners are among the highest performing laser profile sensors in the world. Even the smallest of parts can be measured to the highest precision, enabling a new dimension of quality control. The fields of application are diverse across all industries. Therefore, as well as determining the blade angle of razors, the thickness of potato slices, the completeness of laser welding seams, the position of electronic components and the quality of silicone adhesive beading can also be determined.
Draw-wire displacement sensors measure linear movements using a highly flexible steel cable. Measurements are performed with high accuracy and high dynamic response. Draw-wire sensors are ideal for integration and subsequent assembly in high volume OEM applications e.g. in medical devices, lifts, conveyors and automotive engineering.
optoNCDT 1320/1420 laser sensors based on the triangulation measuring principle perform non-contact displacement, distance and position measurements. Due to their low weight combined with compact size, the optoNCDT 1320/1420 sensors can be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces and are ideally suitable for applications where high accelerations occur e.g. on the robot arm or in pick-and-place machines. The high-performance optical system projects the small light spot sharply onto the measurement object which enables to even detect smallest components reliably.
Confocal chromatic sensors provide the latest modern technology for displacement, distance, position and thickness measurements combined with maximum precision and high speed. Especially when measuring on reflecting and shiny targets, confocal chromatic sensors provide high accuracy whereas laser sensors are overdriven due to the high light intensity. This is a major advantage in a 'live' production process, where tactile measurement technology is operating at its limits, especially if the target is located in a difficult-to-access area. Micro-Epsilon is one of the leading companies in the field of high precision sensor technology. Confocal chromatic sensors and controllers provide unsurpassed advantages in terms of measuring rate, sensitivity and precise thickness measurement. Different sensor models and controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.
With more than 6,000 engineer-years and 120 patents, Micro-Epsilon stands out due to its widespread knowledge in high precision sensor technology which enables measurements to sub-nanometer accuracy. These sensors are used worldwide in process automation, for quality improvement and in terms of resource conservation. Most of the sensors are designed to customer-specific requirements for exceptional projects such as the European Extremely Large Telescope which is the largest mirror telescope in the world
Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon (eddyNCDT) measure distances,
displacements, or positions of any electrically-conductive target. Eddy
current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are ideally suited for applications
in harsh industrial environments (pressure, dust, temperature).
Furthermore, the eddy current sensors are integrated in semiconductor
applications where submicron accuracy is demanded.
+ High precision and resolution
+ Non-contact and wear-free
+ Insensitive to dirt
+ Suitable for fast applications
+ Very good price/performance ratio
Draw-wire sensors of the wireSENSOR series measure almost linearly across the entire measuring range and are used for distance and position measurements of 50mm up to 50,000mm. Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon are ideal for integration and subsequent assembly in high volume OEM applications e.g. in medical devices, lifts, conveyors and automotive engineering.
