Laser scanners for 2D/3D profile measurements
Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are among the highest performing profile sensors in the world with respect to accuracy and measuring rate. They detect, measure and evaluate profiles on different object surfaces without contact. The available models with different measuring ranges are ideally suitable for industrial applications. Models for the customer’s own evaluation programming are available for integrators. With integrated intelligence, the scanCONTROL SMART scanners solve numerous measurement tasks. The scanCONTROL models require no external controller, which significantly simplifies the installation effort.
One SMART scanner for all parameters
scanCONTROL laser scanners solve various measurement tasks: profile, width, height, depth, edge, bead, gap, angle, roundness and many more. With the Configuration Tools software, more than 40 measurement programs with a total of more than 90 evaluations are available. The programs are transferred to the SMART sensor, which performs the measurement, evaluation and output in standalone mode.
Profile scanners with red laser and patented Bue Laser scanners
Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are available with a red laser diode or with the patented Blue Laser Technology. Laser scanners with blue laser line are preferably used for profile measurements on red-hot glowing metals, as well as transparent and organic surfaces. While allowing significantly higher stability, the blue-violet laser beam does not penetrate the measuring object.
Measurement tasks involving blue laser scanners measuring on red-hot glowing measurement objects exceeding 700 °C and transparent objects such as glass and plastics are protected by patent law. The scanCONTROL laser scanners achieve excellent signal stability and thus precise measurement results on these surfaces.
Compact profile sensors
The compact design combined with low weight opens up new fields of application in profile measurement. Since the controller is integrated in the housing of the scanCONTROL profile sensors, the cabling effort is reduced, which facilitates mechanical integration. Thanks to their compact design and high profile frequency, the laser profile sensors are suitable for dynamic measurement tasks, e.g. in production monitoring or for assembly processes on robots.
