Micro-Epsilon news

In numerous industrial processes, high precision temperature control is required to achieve high and consistent quality results. Modern infrared temperature measuring devices detect hot objects, parts that are difficult to access and that move quickly. From a safe distance, these thermoIMAGER TIM infrared cameras detect temperature profiles of, e.g., glass, metals and very fine details on PCBs.

The confocalDT IFS2405-6 from Micro-Epsilon is a new confocal chromatic sensor which can be mounted in a safe distance from the object to be measured. The sensor is primarily used for thickness measurements in glass production processes where it provides precise measurement results at a large offset distance. Every confocal chromatic sensor in the IFS series covers measuring ranges from 0.1 to 30 mm.

In cold forming processes, deep drawing is considered a decisive step in the production process. optoNCDT 1420 laser triangulation sensors measure the metal sheet infeed during pressing, as this parameter is crucial for the quality assessment of the process. Due to their robust design, these sensors are insensitive to shock and vibration. Based on innovative sensor technology, the measured results are constantly precise even under challenging conditions such as parts with different reflection characteristics.

scanCONTROL 30xx/BL laser scanners are designed for dynamic measurement tasks with high demands on resolution and accuracy. Available with measuring ranges of 25 and 50 mm (along the laser line/X axis), they are primarily used in automation tasks, production and process monitoring as well as quality control. The selectable High Dynamic Range mode (or HDR mode) additionally offers an innovative exposure control feature which enables precise results even on demanding surfaces.

The world’s smallest draw-wire sensor enhances the Micro-Epsilon product range. With a weight of only 8 g and a size of just 19 x 19 mm, the wireSENSOR MT19 is used for displacement and distance measurements with a measuring range of 40 mm. This highly dynamic sensor is extremely compact and enables wire accelerations up to 60 g. The new MT series from Micro-Epsilon also includes the MT33 and MT56 draw-wire sensors, which stand out due to an ultra-compact design relative to their measuring ranges.

The confocal confocalDT IFS2407-0,1 sensor opens up new fields of application in precision, confocal displacement and thickness measurements. Resolutions up to 3 nm enable this compact sensor to perform measurements at the highest accuracies. The sensor copes with large tilt angles while offering a small light spot size of 3 µm, which enables high precision roughness measurements. Minimum material thickness for thickness measurements of transparent materials is just 5 µm.
