The capaNCDT 61x0/IP capacitive measuring system is suitable for inline quality assurance of production processes, and for control of plant and machinery. It accurately determines displacement, distance, deflection and expansion, while being insensitive to temperature fluctuations and magnetic fields. Protected to IP68, this measuring system is therefore suitable for many industrial measurement tasks.

Fully or semi-automatic assembly of cockpit modules during automotive production processes requires the gripper tool to precisely position the assembly parts. Offering integrated profile calculation and due to their compact design, laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are used for this task. They can be easily installed on a robot or manipulator.

Condition monitoring of wind turbines increases their performance and the service life of components and machines. Modern sensor technologies can help to prevent repairs and to optimize maintenance cycles, not only during the construction and manufacturing of wind turbine components, but also in test benches and in the wind turbine itself.

The latest Configuration Tools 6.0 software combines uniformity with increased functionality and improved ease of use. The software is now available for scanCONTROL sensors and gapCONTROL sensors and therefore arrives as a joint software solution for both sensor types, which now also supports measurements and evaluations of different gap types.

In wind turbines, the bearing gap is very important because the better the sliding properties, the higher the plant effectiveness and service life. The bearing gap between the bearing surface and the drive shaft is reliably monitored using inductive sensors from Micro-Epsilon based on eddy currents.

The new, confocal chromatic confocalDT IFS2404-2 sensor is used for high precision distance and thickness measurements of transparent materials. With a diameter of just 12 mm, the sensor can also be integrated into restricted installation space. The innovative lens enables high measurement accuracy and a small light spot diameter. Together with the confocalDT 2421/2422 controller, the new sensor offers an excellent price/performance ratio for OEM purposes.

Monitoring the clamping position in machine tools is an extremely important and critical measurement task. In order to avoid incorrect machining and the high resulting costs, the position of the tool must be detected. Here, the induSENSOR LVP displacement sensor is used. The compact and wear-free sensor supplies a continuous analog signal according to the stroke motion of the drawbar when clamping the tool.

In cooperation with Micro-Epsilon, KRP Mechatec has developed a measuring platform for high precision thermal deformation measurement of space components. This measurement is performed using capacitive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon which provide a statement about the deformation down to the microradian range.

Capacitive sensors are considered one of the most precise measuring systems for displacement, distance and position, achieving resolutions well below one nanometer. The modular-designed system allows up to four additional measurement channels to be added. It stands out due to its modular design and because it is one of the most modern controllers in the world. The capaNCDT 6222 is used for high speed measurements up to 20 kHz.

In the surface finishing of strip material, the color sensor system used must meet high requirements in terms of precision and speed. To detect color nuances with an accuracy of ΔE <0.1, the colorCONTROL ACS7000 color measuring system from Micro-Epsilon is used. It works with high precision and speed directly in the production line.

The new optoNCDT 1750LL laser sensor is used in high precision distance measurements of metallic and structured surfaces. Their oval-shaped light spot makes it possible to compensate for physical interferences and to output stable measurement values. Therefore, the optoNCDT 1750LL can be used where conventional laser point sensors are operating at their limits.
