The confocal chromatic confocalDT 2422 dual-channel system enables reliable and precise thickness measurement of container glass in each color. The measurements are performed with highest precision and in harsh ambient conditions that are partly due to glass dust and powder. The measurement system operates with high speed and provides the measurement values in real time via EtherCAT.

One-sided thickness measurement of container glass

Combining speed and a large temperature measuring range, the new thermoIMAGER TIM G7 is an industrial thermal imaging camera specially designed for applications in the glass industry. The spectral range of 7.9µm enables reliable measurements even on thin glass sheets without unwanted transmission loss. The new VGA model offers a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

The optoNCDT 1420 is by now also available with a measuring range of 500mm. It is therefore the smallest laser sensor in the market that offers such a large measuring range combined with high measurement accuracy. This smart laser sensor is suitable for logistics, warehouse automation and robotics.

One of a kind: compact laser sensor with 500mm measuring range

Instead of a red laser line, the Blue Laser diode generates a blue-violet laser beam with a wavelength of 405nm. The sharper focus enables a sharper projection of the laser beam and therefore increased accuracy. In numerous measurement tasks, the technology patented by Micro-Epsilon offers decisive advantages compared to red-diode laser sensors.

Innovative Blue Laser Technology with Patent

The new optoNCDT 2300-2DR uses blue laser light and is specially designed for displacement and distance measurements on directly reflecting surfaces. On reflective and shiny surfaces, the sensor operates at high speed and provides maximum precision in the nanometer range. Furthermore, the optoNCDT 2300-2DR laser sensor has a unique feature as it is the only laser sensor in its class for directly reflecting surfaces where the entire electronics are integrated in a compact housing.

An even larger field of applications is now opened up for the optoNCDT 2300 high performance laser sensor. The new C-Box/2A interface converter now enables fast D/A conversion of two optoNCDT 2300 laser sensor signals. Furthermore, individual measurement values can be calculated synchronously in order to directly output parameters such as thickness, diameter or tilt angle.

The new, compact thermoIMAGER TIM Lightweight enables state-of-the-art temperature monitoring from the air. A high resolution infrared camera and a miniature PC with a combined weight of just 380 grams, offers the latest infrared measurement technology in extremely compact dimensions, which is specifically designed for flight applications such as the monitoring of photovoltaic systems.

Modern technology enables highly precision temperature monitoring in the air

In glass bottle production based on the press and blow method, the weight of the glass drop is a crucial factor in ensuring a smooth production process. Harsh ambient conditions, particularly strong vibrations, present a huge challenge for the measurement technology involved. Therefore, Micro-Epsilon has developed a special EDS long-stroke sensor in cooperation with the German IS machine builder GPS.

Customer-specific sensors ensure high quality in container glass production

scanCONTROL laser profile sensors prevent machine damage in paper production. The sensors are used to inspect the paper web which needs to be smoothed and carried through the calender precisely in a single line.

Exact web-edge detection in paper production

The new scanCONTROL 3D-View software enables fast, three-dimensional visualization of point cloud data that has been precisely measured with scanCONTROL profile sensors. The software offers the user numerous new features, optimized performance and improved ease of use.
