As a long-standing partner in machine building and machine design, Micro-Epsilon offers a wide range of sensors and measuring systems. Miniaturised and integrated into machines, displacement sensors measure machine movements, positioning and travel paths and ensure safe machine operation. For automated machines and process-integrated machines, Micro-Epsilon sensors monitor a wide range of sizes of manufactured products.
Particularly where harsh ambient conditions such as oil, dirt, pressure, vibrations and temperatures are present, sensors from Micro-Epsilon convince with high precision and favourable conditions.
Edge detection of fabric strips in the cutting machine
If the position of the material web is not recognised or is recognised incorrectly, this can result in waste from faulty cutting and machine malfunctions due to missing controller signals. Therefore, the ...Show details
Compensating for axial extension of milling spindles
Due to high machining speeds and the heat generated, the linear thermal expansion in milling spindles needs to be compensated for in order to keep the tool in a defined position at all times. The SGS sensor ...Show details
Measurement of the torsional stiffness of motor axles
A decisive factor for the service life and reliability of an engine is the torsional strength of the engine axle. In order to determine the torsional resistance, INC5701 inclination sensors detect the ...Show details
Web-edge detection in the calender of a paper machine
If movement of the paper web in the calender is not exactly executed in one line, the heated calender roller is pressed directly onto the coating of the opposite roller, which can damage it. Repairing ...Show details
Temperature measurement for injection mould applications
Users of injection molding machines for plastics processing are facing increased quality requirements imposed by end-users, in particular for automotive applications. Because of this trend, the importance ...Show details
Active compensation for movements in the measurement process
Harsh industrial environments place high demands on optical displacement sensors – precise measurements must still be possible despite dust and high processing speeds. The optoNCDT 1750 and ...Show details
Measurement of the radial deviation of a cutter disk
During the manufacture of veneer strips from laminated wood, the precision of the cutting disk determines the quality of the final product. High demands are placed on the veneer strips in terms of dimensional ...Show details
