More precision

Shipbuilding and railway technology

Sensors for displacement measurement are frequently used in both these areas. In doing so, the application area starts as early as the manufacture. For example, sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used for the quality inspection. In operation, they often provide the necessary safety such as, for example, the inclination of trains. Displacement sensors are also used during maintenance and repair.
