Press releases of Micro-Epsilon

In cooperation with Kunststoff-Zentrum SKZ KTT GmbH, Micro-Epsilon has devised a thermography solution for inline quality control of injection-moulding machines.

Press release

In September 2007, Micro-Epsilon established collaboration with the BMW plant in Dingolfing, Germany, and the Institute for Software Systems in Technical Informatics Applications of the University of Passau (FORWISS Passau). This new joint research project was based on deflectometry software developed by Micro-Epsilon and Passau University and focused on developing a new optical measuring process for industrial quality control of reflecting surfaces. The Bavarian Research Foundation funded the entire two-year FORSO project.

Press release

On 16.01.2012 Micro-Epsilon Messtechnik GmbH &Co. KG, based in Ortenburg, Germany, named a new Board of Management. After 35 years, Dipl.-Ing. Karl Wisspeintner handed the management of the company over to his successor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Sellen who will be responsible for production and development, while recent Deputy CEO Dipl.-Phys. Johann Salzberger will be looking after the company's financial matters.

Press release

MICRO-EPSILON Eltrotec introduces colorCONTROL ACS7000, the first online color measuring system. The measuring principle is based on spectral imaging. First, the target is illuminated with white light, then the spectrum of the reflected light is compared to a white reference. The results are used to calculate CIE-xy color coordinates for wavelengths of 390-780 nm.

Press release

The latest additions to Micro-Epsilon’s miniature infrared camera range are the thermoIMAGER 400 and 450. These two new models offer extremely high optical resolution of 382x288 pixels.

Press release

The new wireSENSOR MK-88 extends the Micro-Epsilon portfolio of ultra-compact draw wire sensors. A low-cost alternative to the aluminum-based standard industrial range, the MK series excels in its compact design, its glass fiber reinforced plastic construction and its particularly low price for large quantities.

Press release

Micro-Epsilon offers the new colorCONTROL MFA-5 for the inspection of LEDs starting at a basic version that offers five measuring channels. This simplifies the inspection of LEDs for their function, contrast and luminosity. The new MFA-5 is extremely compact and can verify up to five LEDs simultaneously. The measuring system can be extended in a modular fashion by adding extra MFA-E modules in batches of 5 channels.

Press release

ConfocalDT 2451 and 2471 are the latest high performance controllers in Micro-Epsilon’s confocal measurement range. Due to excellent signal-to-noise ratio, measurement rates of 10kHz are achieved using an LED and 70kHz using a xenon light source. For the first time, a high performance CCD array is installed as the sensor element in the controller, developed by Micro-Epsilon in a robust industrial housing. The unique active exposure regulation of a laser line enables rapid, precise surface compensation in dynamic measuring processes on a range of different target surfaces. ConfocalDT is the first controller that offers Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 and analog output interfaces. The sensors are therefore extremely flexible and can be easily integrated to existing systems.

Press release

A new high-speed inspection system has been developed for the automobile industry, based on Micro-Epsilon's scanCONTROL 2710 system. It detects the quality of adhesive beads as soon as they have been applied during the vehicle assembly process.

Press release

The use of a "wire" of synthetic material in draw-wire sensors is ensuring additional application areas for the wireSENSOR P85 sensors from Micro-Epsilon. Thanks to its high tensile strength, its low expansion and extremely long service life, it is technically equal in every way to conventional steel wire while its lower weight is a further bonus

Press release

The new capacitive sensors from Micro-Epsilon capaNCDT CSG are specially developed to measure gap width. Sensor electrodes are applied to the top front and back on a circuit board that has a width of 20cm. Using the sensor electrodes and the differential method, the gap width can be determined very precisely while moving the sensor into the gap.

Press release

The new gapCONTROL laser scanner from Micro Epsilon has been developed specifically for non-contact gap measurement. The sensor is based on laser light section technology, though it makes use of a totally new evaluation procedure.
