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...

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’...

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Springs are formed by winding a strip of material on an arbor and into a case or retaining ring to create a compact power source. Power spring features
retractable, tensioning and loading function. When it comes position movement and high adjustment of machine and appliance, precise positioning performance and easily operating are required at first priority. 

In medical devices field, Ming Tai's power spring had been employed in Draw-wire Encoder for positioning of MRI and x-ray machines, which has gained great performance.

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...
