Micro-Epsilon news

The compact optoNCDT 1750 laser sensor is designed for displacement and distance measurements, while offering triple the speed, improved repeatability by a factor of two, and an increase in linearity of 25% compared to its predecessor. The combination of enhanced performance and a wide range of features result in a sensor that takes a leading role in its class.

Laser triangulation sensor sets new performance standards

Micro-Epsilon offers modern sensor technologies for application solutions optimized according to customers’ specifications. Our precise 3D sensor technology measures quantities such as displacement, distance, position, color and temperature, but also implements 3D inspection of mat and shiny surfaces.

Efficient sensors for industrial high volume applications

wireSENSOR WPS-MK miniature draw-wire sensors are specially designed for high volume serial applications. Despite its very compact design, small measuring ranges up to 7500mm can be detected. The user benefits from favorable prices and compact sensor dimensions, therefore gaining new potential in design and cost optimization.

Miniature draw-wire sensors for economic serial applications

Compared to draw-wire sensors based on a conventional potentiometer, the new wireSENSOR WPS-MK88 U45R with a non-contact potentiometer achieves 8 times more working cycles, which extends the sensor’s service life to its maximum. This new technology combined with a robust plastic housing and a favorable price/performance ratio, sets new standards in terms of economic efficiency.

The eddyNCDT 3060 inductive measurement system is based on eddy currents and enables fast, precise displacement measurements. More than 400 sensor models can be combined with the eddyNCDT 3060. Based on ease of use and smart signal processing, this non-contact system defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement.

A new performance class in inductive displacement measurements

Thanks to their robustness and low weight, fiber-reinforced composite materials are increasingly used in the aviation and automotive industries. Manual repair of such components has to date been a challenging task. A mobile milling unit now enables automatic defect detection using modern laser sensors and laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon to enable repairs within the shortest possible time.

The confocal chromatic sensor product range from Micro-Epsilon is extended with the compact IFS2406-3 sensor. It can be used in restricted spaces and provides precise measurement values with a large offset distance. This is particularly favorable for distance and thickness measurements in industrial conditions, such as e.g. those in the glass industry.

Precise distance and thickness measurement in restricted spaces

Measuring tasks in the glass industry are often a huge challenge for sensors. The new confocal chromatic confocalDT 2421 / 2422 controllers ensure reliable, high speed and high precision distance and thickness measurements on reflecting and transparent objects. The automatic exposure control allows stable measurements regardless of the glass color.

The powerful eddyNCDT 3001 eddy current sensors are now also available with an M18 housing and measuring ranges of 6mm and 8mm. This enlargement provides the sensors with increased flexibility in terms of their potential applications. These temperature-compensated sensors deliver fast and precise results for a wide range of applications in all industries. Even in harsh environments where high pressures, dirt and oil are present, high precision measurements of displacement, distance and position are still possible.

Increased flexibility with inductive sensors based on eddy currents

The thermoIMAGER TIM M1 infrared camera is designed for temperature monitoring tasks in the metal processing industry and e.g. when hardening or forming metals. For laser welding applications, special models with blocking filter are available. Furthermore, the new TIMConnect software version offers simplified handling and enhanced features.

Modern temperature monitoring in the metals industry

Car body IDs are punched into the vehicle frame during a complex process, which enables unambiguous identification worldwide. The embossment depth is a critical quality and security feature. Due to their extremely small light spot size, optical optoNCDT 1420 sensors from Micro-Epsilon reliably detect and measure these profiles in the embossment machine. The extremely compact design of the sensors enables their application in small installation spaces too.

To date, color measurement of liquid paint has been a lengthy, time-consuming process. A new system solution from Micro-Epsilon involving the colorCONTROL ACS7000 inline color measurement system and the optoNCDT 1420-50 laser triangulation sensor, enables real-time, high precision color determination directly from the manufacturer.
