Orientation of wooden boards

In fully automated sawmills, the position of wooden boards before sawing must be determined so that they can be cut precisely. Micro-Epsilon laser displacement sensors detect the position of the boards from two sides and output the board position to the controller.

Inspection of plate position

When printing woods with decors, optoCONTROL micrometers are used to control the positions of the plate. This prevents the printing head from colliding with the plate. These laser micrometers measure directly on wood and monitor the tools.

Inspection of wood floorboard relief

Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are used to inspect wood reliefs. They check the groove depth and provide reliable measurement results regardless of the type of wood.

Profile inspection of parquet flooring and baseboards

Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are used for the profile measurement of parquet boards and baseboards. They inspect geometric characteristics such as groove height, gap dimensions and absolute dimensions to ensure homogeneous product quality.

Color recognition of kitchen fronts

In order to ensure consistent color of different front panels, color sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used. The sensors inspect the color of the kitchen fronts in the painting plant. Color sensors ensure that the color shade is within the specified tolerances. Even the smallest color deviations imperceptible to the human eye can be detected reliably.

Dimension control of beams

For thickness and width measurement of plates, planks and beams, two optoNCDT laser sensors are used.

If this arrangement is complemented by further sensors, one synchronized measurement process can combine the inspection of torsion with control of dimensions.

Position detection of car bodies in the processing line

Before a car emerges from a bodyshell, it passes through numerous stations within the production, in which fully automatic processing steps are carried out. In order to enables the processing robots to recognize the exact position of the car body, several laser triangulation sensors measure the car body and transmit the position data to the robot controller.

Measuring applied adhesive of tapes, plasters and Band-Aids

To ensure a homogeneous adhesive surface, capacitive displacement sensors measure the thickness of the adhesive on adhesive tapes and medical plasters. Capacitive sensors allow one-sided thickness measurement. Depending on the system structure, conductive or non-conductive adhesives can be measured.

Color inspection and sorting of supplier parts

Before installing front aprons, Micro-Epsilon color sensors check if the color of the attachment matches the body color. Different color groups can be defined to cover all coatings.

High precision thickness measurement of silicon wafers

Capacitive displacement sensors are used for the exact thickness measurement of wafers. Two opposing sensors detect the thickness and also determine other parameters such as deflection or sawing marks. The position of the wafer in the measuring gap may vary.

Presence detection of small parts

In assembly processes, incoming components are inspected using Micro-Epsilon fiber optic sensors. Recognizing missing SMT components enables a smooth assembly process. Their flexible design allows for the optoCONTROL CLSK probe heads to be integrated in confined spaces.

Color measurement of the floorboards

Plastic floorboards are made of colored granules and shaped by deep-drawing. After the production process, it must be guaranteed that the color of the floorboards is homogenous and that there are no color differences.

In-line detection of protective film on PVC window frames

Company „Schüco“ manufactures PVC window frames. The PVC profiles are provided with a protective film after they are extruded. This film protects the frames from scratches and dirt. The colorCONTROL ACS7000 color measurement system checks if the protective film has been applied correctly.

Calibrating robot axes

Industrial robots have become indispensable in modern production facilities due to their reliability and speed. During set up and also at regular intervals within the scope of quality assurance, the robot axes must be adjusted. Here, electronic adjustment probes have long substituted mechanical probes. The measurement probes mounted on the robot axes and acquire the zero point during the axis rotation using a probe tip. The integral electronics evaluate the probe signal and supplies a switching signal to the robot controller.

Thickness measurement of black rubber belts

Rubber mats for the structure sealing must exhibit a specified thickness for durability and tear resistance. The thickness of the films is measured directly after the extrusion. The optoNCDT 1750 sensors used measure the distance to the rubber despite bad reflectivity. The thickness is determined from the sensor signal and the distance to a reference roller. The user thus recognizes already starting deviations from the target thickness.
