Measurement solutions that require a high level of automation are now increasingly being requested for factory automation applications. Often, these measurement tasks can only be solved reliably and quickly through the use of robots. Micro-Epsilon Messtechnik offers various solutions for robot-based measurement tasks. Non-contact sensors and measurement systems from Micro-Epsilon are primarily used for defect detection, as well as gap and position measurement and robot guidance.
surfaceCONTROL is used for the recognition of defects on diffuse reflecting surfaces such as metallic surfaces (uncoated, galvanised KTL), plastic surfaces and ceramics. Aside from metals, this system also enables the detection of defects on automotive body parts and interior vehicle parts.
reflectCONTROL is used to detect defects on reflecting surfaces such as painted vehicle body shells. This automatic surface inspection system provides an objective quality assurance method at very fast cycle times. [...more on this product]
The automationCONTROL system uses optical sensors to measure engines in a scanning cabin, and then generates custom robot programs which can be adapted to all engine types with their various attachments. The programs are loaded into the robot's memory and then executed automatically. [...more on this product]
The gapCONTROL models were developed for the special requirements of gap measurement. The sensors are used with all common types of gap and are particularly easy to set up and configure. A variety of sensor models are available for gap measurements in quality control, manufacturing processes or for automation applications. [...more on the product]
