Aerospace, aviation and aeronautics

The applications in aviation and aeronautics range from the development of individual components to the use in the aircraft or rocket. The high reliability and high quality combined with many innovations in the sector make diverse uses of the sensors possible. The applications range from traditional uses to completely new approaches for individual measurement principles.

A desired or undesired expansion of an object is always combined with a temperature change. This can already start or prevent a minimum expansion process. Several product groups are available for monitoring ...

Load tests on airplane wings

In order to optimize the behavior of wings during a flight, the wings are already subjected to vibration tests during the construction. 120 wireSENSOR draw-wire sensors are connected to the wing and synchronized. ...


The width of the object is often an important dimension for the dimension control. The width can in some respects also be interpreted as thickness and in this case can be resolved using thickness measurement. Different ...

Lift height of a catering vehicle

Catering vehicles play an important role in passenger air traffic. They are responsible for there being enough foodstuffs on board. It is especially difficult with the Airbus A380 to reach the loading ...

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors is a wide application area. Basically there are distinctions between non-destructive/destructive, non-contact/with contact and one-side/two-sided thickness ...


Profile measurement generally describes the measurement of the object contour, flat or as a track. Basically, it is possible that either the sensor traverses across the object or the object moves through ...


A groove can occur in many different objects as a sustained depression. Whether a groove is desired or not is the question. If a single track measurement of a groove is sufficient, laser point sensors, ...

Release of satellites into space

order to be able to launch a satellite from the Areane rocket unobstructed into space, the nose cone section, together with the side shield, have to be separated from the main rocket immediately before ...

Release of satellites into space

If satellites are put into the Earth’s orbit, it is necessary to separate the cone of the rocket from the satellites of the rocket itself. After unlatching the retainer for the nosecones, spring assemblies ...

Reflector tilting for satellites

Satellites communicate with one another using laser beams. For this communication, the transmitter must be very precisely aligned with the receiver. The laser beam is stabilized using a deflection mirror. ...


Vibrations play a large role in the manufacturing industry. There is always vibration where products are in motion. In many cases, this is perceived as an interfering factor and must not exceed specified ...


It is important to know the angle of a surface for many processes. Contacting measurement is not expedient in automated processes. scanCONTROL 2800 or scanCONTROL 2700 non-contact sensors measure any angle ...
