scanCONTROL laser profile scanners are among the highest performing profile sensors in the world, equipped with an integrated, powerful controller that calculates two-dimensional surface profiles. 3D measurements using laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon can be carried out during the ongoing operation of the production line, i.e. during continuous flow and with continuous materials.
The laser scanners achieve high lateral resolutions up to 8µm, which enables them to recognize particularly small deviations. Laser profile scanners are also used for measurements and surface inspection of extruded plastic parts such as window profiles, wooden boards in a continuous process, rotating tires and clutch discs, and the inspection of train rails at high speeds.
