Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Confocal chromatic sensors provide the latest modern technology for displacement, distance, position and thickness measurements combined with maximum precision and high speed. A large range of sensors and different controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.

Especially when measuring on reflecting and shiny targets, confocal chromatic sensors provide high accuracy whereas laser sensors are overdriven due to the high light intensity. This is a major advantage in a ‘live’...

New Models for uEye CP Camera Family from IDS

New Models for uEye CP Camera Family from IDS

IDS has integrated the high-resolution 12 MP IMX226 rolling shutter sensor into the uEye CP camera family, giving increased resolution, speed and sensitivity. The new models are available with GigE or USB3 interfaces and are available from May.

Thanks to the BSI ("back-side-illumination") technology of the SONY STARVIS series of sensors, the IMX226 is perfect for tasks that require optimal results even in low light conditions. It delivers extremely low-noise images and is therefore ideally suited for applications in areas such as microscopy, logistics and traffic monitoring.

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

Building new machines for today’s factories requires sophisticated control and automation that can only be delivered through multiple solutions and components – including a PLC, HMI, and VFD (Variable Frequency Drive). As all components must be integrated, selecting the right combination is crucial to the efficiency and success of the machine development project.

Why risk multi-vendor complexity?

Researching different products from multiple companies can be a major drain on time as well as confusing, with different offers and delivery schedules. And, when you have questions...

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Ming Tai Industrial Co., one of leading manufacturers of steel strip springs, develops wide variety of high precision constant force springs for carbon brushes application. It ensures the carbon brush works consistently by dependably exerting constant pressure to increase brush life and to reduce electrical wear. Carbon brushes can also be used for earth return current units to divert static and induced electric currents in a motor shaft away from the bearings, and to protect them from pitting and damage.

Constant force spring keeps carbon brush to rub against...

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Micro-Epsilon's optoNCDT 1320/1420 laser sensors based on the triangulation measuring principle perform non-contact displacement, distance and position measurements. Due to their low weight combined with compact size, the optoNCDT 1320/1420 sensors can be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces and are ideally suitable for applications where high accelerations occur e.g. on the robot arm or in pick-and-place machines. The high-performance optical system projects the small light spot sharply onto the measurement object which...
