Machine building

Machine building today is more automated than ever before. Displacement measurement for assurance of the functions is being used more and more. Displacement measurement also plays an important role for the achievable precision today of the various systems. Micro-Epsilon itself has acquired particular competence in its System Department.

Width

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 ...

Brake disc concentricity

Brake discs are subject to the highest loads in use and are responsible for the safety of vehicles. For this reason alone, brake discs are thoroughly inspected on test benches. Brake discs are checked ...

Inspection of rotationally symmetrical parts

The scanCONTROL laser scanner is used for part inspection of various hypoid-tooth components and a digital model of the tooth structure of the component is generated by the measurement system. In this ...

Industrial screwing in automated production systems is carried out by automatic screwdrivers. Apart from the torque, the engagement length is the most important criterion for the quality of the screwing ...

System for testing the risk of creaking with combinations of materials

Ziegler Instruments in Mönchengladbach, Germany develops  and  manufactures  test  systems  that  are  able  to predict the risk of creaking noises due to stick-slip vibrations. In this way, the ...

Coordinate measuring machine

Coordinate measurement machines from Zeiss have been known for decades for the highest quality, precision and reliability. Also the mobile measurement machine, ScanMax fulfills these criteria, in part ...

Jib lengths of mobile cranes

The current jib length is important when calculating the torque of the load on the crane. This length is measured with an integrated draw-wire sensor. This simple and telescopic measuring principle makes ...

2D/3D measurement station for gaskets

Even if gaskets are just very small components in plant and machinery, they are still critical in terms of their function and operational reliability. However, mechanical engineering companies normally ...

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 ...

Tester for pneumatic actuator

So-called muscles are developed as alternatives to hydraulic cylinders. The hose made of rubber contracts when it is filled with compressed air. An in-house tester has been developed for testing this muscle. ...

Automatic test station for heat exchangers

Heat exchangers in plant and machinery serve as heat transfer mechanisms between different material flows. To maximise the heat-emitting area, they are designed using multiple plates. Respectively one ...

Tester for (railway) wheel rim measurement

Testers are integrated in the track bed for the wear control of wheel rims on trains. The profile is checked during the passage of the train. Point-type and line-type lasers measure the diameter and the ...

Completely automatic 3D repair welding

For heavy equipment such as soft coal excavators, it is often cheaper to repair parts than to replace them. For the repair of chain links during maintenance work, the worn material is welded on again by ...

Diameter of a pulley

Diameter and concentricity are crucial factors for a long service life, due to the high rotational speeds achieved by pulleys. These parameters are evaluated on a special test bed, using four optoCONTROL ...

Checking the accuracy of robot trajectories

The measurement of the trajectory accuracy or its reproducibility is carried out along a diagonal straight line in space. The robot moves the measuring head, which is fitted with sensors, along a steel ...

Position checking on robots

The introduction of the international standard ISO 9283 demands new non-contacting measurement methods. The measurement system for the position measurement is composed of a measurement cube with a defined ...

Draw-wire displacement sensors take measurements in pipe trade

In the piping industry orders are placed for fixed lengths of a certain type of pipe. The available pipes with different lengths are transported from the stores to a measurement table to process the order. ...

Acquisition of the internal diameter of tubes

An important criterion for the quality or the wear of tubes in industrial applications is the dimensional conformance of the internal diameter over the complete length. Where high demands are made on accuracy, ...

High precision pipe measurement

High precision pipe measurement Pipes, fittings and sleeves are inspected using random sampling for their dimensional accuracy in a special system. Sensors of the optoNCDT 1700 series rotate mounted on ...

Measurement of key profiles

In the production of security keys, the correct blank must be located in the machine before grinding of the teeth can be checked. An optoNCDT 2200 laser sensor traverses across the profile, recording the ...

Gap detection on glass

Glass substrates are required for certain medical tests. During manufacture of silicon chips, the substrate is milled in a defined grid with a depth of 800µm. For separation, the substrate is broken at ...

Spindle growth

Spindles of machine tools are subjected to high mechanical load. This load results in thermal expansion of the spindles. The associated change in length causes a certain positioning error for the work ...

Speed measurement on automatic abrasive cutting machine

Tiles and special bricks are processed according to their type on automatic abrasive cutting machines. The objective is fast throughput times with the best quality result. Here, the setting parameters ...

Eddy current sensors in tribology testers

Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used for various measurement tasks in tribology testers of the ITR in Clausthal. They withstand the harshest ambient conditions there as they measure directly ...

Drive controller in precision respooling machines

Defects in ovality

In the case of processes where rolls, rollers or other cylindrical objects are rotated very quickly or an extremely constant radius must be maintained, the radial deviations must be checked before and/or ...

Underwater Measurement of axial movement and shaft play

The functional safety of systems of special economic importance often depends on the perfect operation of delivery devices (pumps). Increased radial shaftwhirl, or an axial shift due to termal expansion, ...
