Micro-Epsilon news

Micro-Epsilon celebrates its 45th anniversary. In over four decades, a three-man operation has become a global group of companies. Since the company was founded in 1968, Micro-Epsilon development engineers have been setting new trends for high-precision sensors. The first digital measuring system, the smallest eddy-current sensor in the world, an automatic paint inspection system for automotive production, and temperature-resistant, robust embedded coil technology for capacitive and eddy-current sensors – Micro-Epsilon has made a name for itself as a problem-solver of the most demanding measurement tasks.

Micro-Epsilon has successfully integrated an inductive probe sensor into a miniature actuator for OEM applications. With its 13g and 56mm design, the compact induSENSOR EDS can be permanently exposed to high temperatures, harsh environments and pressure. This miniaturized design can achieve measuring ranges of up to 100mm for absolute displacement measurements on or in a hydraulic cylinder.

Inconspicuous sensors can provide significant advances. For example, in medical technology, confocal distance measurement sensors automate work in the laboratory, draw-wire sensors support the surgeon during operations on patients and technical endoscopes can inspect the grid structure of stents. Micro-Epsilon presents medical measurement technology applications and their special features in the new medical sector brochure.

Optical measuring techniques for industrial quality control are indispensable in many processes and production environments. These techniques are becoming increasingly important due to their non-contact, high precision and almost material-independent measurement method. Micro-Epsilon provides a broad overview of the various optical measuring techniques with application examples.

The optoNCDT 1700BL laser triangulation sensor with a blue laser diode measures reliably even on red-hot glowing objects. Its optical filters are matched to the ultraviolet color spectrum and block the object's intrinsic radiation to minimize measurement errors. At a profile rolling mill, sensors measure the steel bar profiles at temperatures over 1200°C. (The large measuring range of the optoNCDT 1700BL eliminates the need for intricate sensor adjustments for new rolled products.)

Modern automotive engineering wouldn't be the same without sensors and measurement technology. The high level of automation in production requires high precision sensors. In development, new parts are tested extensively before they are released for volume production. In its new industry brochure, Micro-Epsilon introduces applications and special features for the automotive industry.

The confocal-chromatic measuring principle enables one-sided thickness measurement of transparent materials (such as glass). The sensors record the thickness to micrometre accuracy. And with the multi-peak feature, it is now even possible to perform multilayer thickness measurement of up to 5 layers, e.g. for laminated glass and solar cells.
