Energy storage devices such as lithium-ion batteries play a crucial role in electromobility and energy transition. In order to optimise battery production, sensors are required to monitor the production line, including thickness measurement sensors. But what are the challenges in making reliable thickness measurements, asks Glenn Wedgbrow, Business Development Manager at Micro-Epsilon UK.

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced a new range of high precision 3D snapshot measurement sensors that are suitable for automated, inline measurement of geometry, shape and surface quality of objects. The sensors stand out due to their extremely high resolution and repeatability, as well as their large measuring area.

A draw wire sensor from Micro-Epsilon is performing a vital role in a water turbine control system. The sensor measures the precise position of the control vane in the turbine. Using the measurement data from the sensor in combination with the water level in the millrace, the control actuator is adjusted to maintain system pressure while maximising flow rate, which in turn produces the maximum electricity for the given amount of available water.

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced a range of inductive displacement sensors that monitor the clamping position in machine tools. The sensors are extremely compact and robust (IP67), while providing high temperature stability and high repeatability, even in harsh machine tool environments.

A range of compact handheld gauges for measuring the coating or paint thickness on CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced plastic) and metal substrates is now available in the UK from Micro-Epsilon. Based on microwave technology, the gauges measure the total layer thickness of insulating materials with micrometre precision.

Precision sensor supplier Micro-Epsilon has introduced a gauge for precise thickness measurements of strip materials, plate and sheet, up to 25mm thick. A complete ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for thickness gauging and quality control, the system offers precise measurement from ± 0.25µm and fills the gap that currently exists in the market between basic thickness sensors and higher cost, dedicated inline thickness measurement systems.

Why do sensor suppliers ask detailed questions when it comes to solving a measurement task? With different measurement technologies and thousands of sensor variants to choose from, the answers to these questions help suppliers decide which sensor is best for the application, says Glenn Wedgbrow, Business Development Manager at Micro-Epsilon UK.

Precision sensor supplier Micro-Epsilon has introduced a non-contact laser distance sensor that measures distances up to 150m with an accuracy of < ± 1mm. The sensor measures accurately even on difficult surfaces such as dark, structured or weakly reflecting objects. Without any special adaptations to the target, the sensor has an impressive range up to 100m. Adding a reflector to the target extends the range to 150m.

Precision sensor supplier Micro-Epsilon has launched an active capacitive measurement system that incorporates a preamplifier within the sensor head to directly boost the signal. This provides end users with greater flexibility for cable routing and movement, especially in industrial automation, robotics, semiconductor production and machine building applications.
