Reliable in series applications – sensors for factory automation
Processes and procedures are becoming ever more demanding in modern factory automation. Be it decentralization, stricter quality requirements or faster production cycles – sensors that provide more than just a switch signal are required. Our diverse range of sensor technologies hit the mark in factory automation applications and provide precise measurement results so that systems and processes can be reliably regulated. Whether on the production line or in robots, the sensors can be installed just about anywhere thanks to the variety of interfaces we offer.
Sensors and systems for inline process monitoring
Competitivity in process automation is significantly improved by increasing efficiency. This involves networking processes, minimizing waste and optimizing throughput rates, among other things. Sensors and measuring systems from Micro-Epsilon also help with precise measurement data acquisition and integration in control systems. They check and monitor strip processes and continuous manufacturing processes with supreme accuracy.
Inline manufacturing monitoring with 3D sensors
With the surfaceCONTROL, reflectCONTROL and scanCONTROL sensor systems, Micro-Epsilon presents a new generation of 3D sensors which are based on a common software platform. These 3D sensors are used for high-resolution geometry and surface measurements and detect the measuring object by scan or by single snapshot allowing fast inspection. Micro-Epsilon’s innovative Valid3D technology from Micro-Epsilon makes it possible to fully image and precisely evaluate the 3D point cloud. The 3D sensors are used for component shape inspection, position determination, presence inspection and flatness or planarity measurement. Thanks to their high level of performance, the sensors can be used for inline applications, on robots and for offline inspection.
