Press releases of Micro-Epsilon

The mainSENSOR measuring principle from Micro-Epsilon unites the advantages of two sensor types. Based on the combination of inductive sensors and magnetic sensors, reliable and durable sensor solutions for displacement, distance and rotational speed measurements have evolved. In particular, magneto-inductive sensors are used as alternatives to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, the packaging industry and in machine monitoring. Their favorable price/performance ratio makes them specially suitable for serial applications.

It is essential that the “width” and “height” of the cable tie strap, as well as the “tooth pitch” are monitored concurrently and constantly during the production of the continuous loop straps. These values are crucial to ensure a consistently good and reliable binding result. HellermannTyton GmbH therefore relies on a solution from ISW GmbH that uses a Micro-Epsilon sensor system to monitor the parameters.

In order to protect PCBs from environmental influences such as humidity, they are coated with a protective clear varnish. This ensures error-free operation. The automotive industry in particular demands a minimum thickness for this protective coating. Up to now, it was not possible to perform a measurement without destroying the target. Confocal sensors from Micro-Epsilon solve this measurement task without making contact with the target and therefore in a non-destructive manner. They provide the thickness values in real time.

The Danish company Inrotech A/S relies on sensors from Micro-Epsilon. A special welding robot, the "Inrotech-Crawler", is used to generate an optimal weld seam in fully-automated processes. Therefore, the welding processes are calculated in advance. During the welding process, the robot uses the precise measurement values provided by Micro-Epsilon’s powerful laser profile scanners. The scanners combine high precision and a compact design with a low sensor weight.

In the water sports center in Leipzig, athletes and future Olympic athletes train in water diving. In order to achieve optimal training results, height-adjustable diving platforms are used. These enable the athletes to jump from individual heights. The system also has considerable advantages for synchronized divers because the towers can be moved to the same height. Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon ensure that the towers are always in the exact position.

The new thermoMETER CTRatio pyrometer provides accurate results with non-contact temperature measurements in harsh, industrial environments. Unlike conventional pyrometers, it delivers constant measurement results even when surrounded by dust, smoke and vapors, as well as with contaminated lenses or when the object is moving within the measuring field. Its green sighting laser is a new feature that enables improved positioning.
