Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a new sensor system that combines an eddy current sensor with a capacitive displacement sensor in a single housing. This unique sensor concept enables high precision one-sided thickness measurements of plastic film or coatings applied on metal objects, plates or sheets.

New combination sensor from Micro-Epsilon enables non-contact, one-sided thickness measurements of plastic film and coated metals

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has extended its capaNCDT series of non-contact capacitive displacement sensors with a range of threaded housing options that enable faster, easier mounting of the sensors in industrial or process manufacturing environments.

Capacitive displacement sensors with threaded bodies simplify mounting

The company Ceramicx in Ireland develops and produces infrared heating elements. These devices generate infrared radiation in order to heat objects on a non-contact basis. These are used when composite materials or plastics need to be heated without contact as evenly as possible. When the heating temperature is too high or too low, this can lead to faulty shapes, inconsistent hardening and quality issues later.

Metals, plastics and rubber processing companies can now benefit from a comprehensive range of inline precision measurement and inspection systems from a single UK supplier.

When sourcing a non-contact colour measurement sensor, it is important to understand the underlying technology the sensor is based on and how this affects measurement performance. Otherwise, you could be purchasing a sensor that simply isn’t up to the task, says Stephen Smith of Micro-Epsilon.

When measuring colour, ensure you choose the right sensor and chip technology

When selecting a non-contact confocal displacement sensor, a number of factors need to be considered, including measuring speed, resolution, type of material and surface, the operating environment and whether thickness measurements are required, says Chris Jones of Micro-Epsilon.

Micro-Epsilon has launched a new range of colour recognition sensors designed for high precision true colour measurement in industrial applications. The sensors stand out due to their high colour accuracy, good reproducibility, high measuring rate and modern communications interfaces for easier network integration and Industry 4.0 capability.

New high accuracy colour sensor is compact, affordable and easy to set up

The new optoNCDT 1750 laser displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon has been extended with new measuring ranges of 500mm and 750mm. With these additional models, the laser sensor can now be applied in fast, high precision measurement tasks that require large measuring ranges.

Car body IDs are punched into the vehicle frame during a complex process, which enables unambiguous identification worldwide. The embossment depth is a critical quality and security feature. Due to their extremely small light spot size, optical optoNCDT 1420 sensors from Micro-Epsilon reliably detect and measure these profiles in the embossment machine. The extremely compact design of the sensors enables their application in small installation spaces too.

Measuring tasks in the glass industry are often a huge challenge for sensors. The new confocal chromatic confocalDT 2421 / 2422 controllers ensure reliable, high speed and high precision distance and thickness measurements on reflecting and transparent objects. The automatic exposure control allows stable measurements regardless of the glass colour.

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced a range of protective housings for its scanCONTROL laser profile sensors and its thermoIMAGER range of infrared thermal imaging cameras. The protective housings enable the sensors and cameras to operate in extremely harsh environments, opening up both technologies to a variety of applications that were previously unsuitable.

When selecting a non-contact capacitive displacement sensor, a number of key factors need to be considered, including target size and shape, guarding method and bandwidth. As well as clean environments, the sensors can also operate in dirty, dusty industrial areas too, says Chris Jones of Micro-Epsilon.
