Compact design, flexible installation options and versatile interfaces make the new scanCONTROL 2600/2900 laser line scanners the ideal choice for high-precision profile and dimensional measurements in production environments.
The three-range method typically used for colour sensors can measure a maximum colour distance of ΔE > 0.5. However, more demanding industrial requirements require test systems that can achieve a colour accuracy of ΔE < 0.1. At present this is only possible by using colour measurement systems based on the spectral value method. A year ago, Micro-Epsilon Eltrotec introduced the first online measurement system of this kind – the colorCONTROL ACS 7000 with a ΔE < 0.08. New features have now been added to this system.
Surgical procedures require a perfect view of the operating area. Surgeons often use surgical microscopes for support. A high-precision capacitive sensor is used to stabilise the microscope's field of view.
The thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201.LLT O-frame measurement system from Micro-Epsilon determines the thickness profile of individual metal strips in slitting lines. A laser line sensor enables additional measurement options, which weren’t supported by conventional measurement methods.
On 1st January 2013, Bernd Hendrych was appointed as new CEO for Micro-Epsilon Eltrotec. In this role, he will continue the work of his predecessor Claus Hofmann, who left the company on the 31 December 2012.
The 350-gramme thermoIMAGER TIM LightWeight thermal imaging camera can be mounted to a quadrocopter to carry out defect analysis on solar cells.
The identityCONTROL TID 8303.I measurement system is based on structured light projection and detects the tyre type on the conveyor belt during production.
Micro-Epsilon has launched a wide range of Ether-/EtherCAT applicable measurement technology at this year’s automation exhibition “SPS/IPC/Drives 2012”. Amongst other new products were eddy current, capacitive and confocal measurement systems, laser profile scanners and laser triangulation sensors, inline colour measurement systems and universal controllers for up to 6 sensors.
Micro-Epsilon presents the new capaNCDT 6220 controller for capacitive sensors, developed for non-contact displacement, distance and position measurement, which can be enlarged by a maximum of 4 measurement channels. The additional channels can be added or removed by the user without any loss of performance or operation of the software.
Micro-Epsilon presents a new series of confocal chromatic sensors, the confocalDT IFS2405. The new sensors have a higher sensitivity and so offer significant advantages with regard to measurements carried out on dark targets. In order to ensure flexible use, the new sensors offer offset distances of up to 100mm. In addition, the tilt angle has been significantly enlarged.
