Micro-Epsilon news

In order to meet the needs of machine building and automation tasks, sensors are becoming smaller and smarter, while also gaining integration capabilities. At this year's Hannover Messe (Germany), Micro-Epsilon presents sensor solutions which can be easily integrated into machines and facilities.

Just in time for Hannover Messe, the new innovative gapCONTROL Setup Software 2.1 will be launched on 13 April. One of the new features enables the evaluation of gaps in terms of various measurement values and to logically connect these digital evaluations. This is how complex evaluations, which in many cases can avoid having to use a control system or IPC, can be performed directly in the sensor head.

In order to inspect the quality of a weld seam, the welding technology measures the time it takes for the welded joints to cool down from 800°C to 500°C (cooling time t8/5). The acceptable changes of the material structure depend on the cooling speed. If the t8/5 time is exceeded or not reached, this can lead to cracks in the weld seam. In order to reliably detect the t8/5 time, pyrometers with laser sighting from Micro-Epsilon are used.

Conditions for Formula Student – an annual event where students design their own racing cars – are not all that different from the Pro league. And improving even the smallest parameter is important. Therefore, the brake disc temperature is measured during test drives to help optimize the vehicle's braking system

Equipped with a scanCONTROL laser scanner from Micro-Epsilon, a special vehicle inspects the inside of a pipeline for deformations and cracks. This mobile device is used in harsh environmental conditions and high ambient temperatures in the middle of the desert and is ideally suited to automatic inspection and recording of measured data.
