The new scanCONTROL 29xx-10/BL laser profile scanner shows its strengths in applications where extremely high resolution and precision are required. The 10mm laser line enables a high x resolution with 1280 points. The blue laser line used is focused significantly sharper as the light does not penetrate into the measurement object. Therefore, scanCONTROL 29xx-10/BL measures very small objects with absolute precision and has a leading position in its class.

Functional and optically perfect - these are two important requirements placed on airbag stitching. During the production process itself, these stitches are inspected using a scanCONTROL 2910-25 laser profile scanner. The distance between the stitching and the separating point between single components, as well as the height difference between both components are detected which, in contrary to the camera technology, functions independently from the color and brightness differences.

The scanCONTROL Configuration Tools software enables the set up and configuration of the SMART laser profile scanners. The latest version 4.2 now provides a number of new features for users, including the ability to freely rotate and position profile views. Furthermore, measurement results can be connected logically to one another, enabling the simultaneous evaluation of different sizes. At the end, an individual IO or NIO signal can be directly transferred to the control system.

Quality and taste of potato crisps depend to a significant degree on the thickness of the potato slices used. With too thick slices, a soft core remains. However, if the slices are too thin, they can burn. The scanCONTROL 2950-50/BL laser scanner with blue laser diode inspects the slices directly after cutting which enables to eliminate defects early and not only during the final quality control check.

Providing resolutions far below one nanometre, capacitive sensors are regarded as one of the most precise measurement systems. The capacitive measuring principle is particularly attractive due to its versatility. As well as electrically conductive objects such as metal, graphite or water, non-conductive objects can also be measured. Typical measured quantities include displacement, distance, position and thickness.

mainSENSOR has a unique selling proposition and is an in-house development of Micro-Epsilon that combines the advantages of both inductive and magnetic sensors. The change of the magnetic field allows distances up to 55mm to be measured rapidly at high accuracy. This is a flexible and cost-effective solution, particular for high volume OEM applications. The mainSENSOR is also an ideal alternative to switches and proximity sensors as the user can generate as many switching points as they desire from the continuous analog signal.

Catalogs and data sheets provide information about sensor characteristics. However, it is advisable to read the indicated specifications together with the small print, as these will reveal under which conditions the measurement was carried out and which filters were used. Micro-Epsilon specifies sensor characteristics based on raw materials and offers you the possibility to obtain non-influenced, reproducible values. Micro-Epsilon enables you to improve your application using versatile options for specific filtering of your values.
