True colour recognition
Visitors can also see a demonstration of the colourSENSOR CFO200, a colour recognition sensor 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. The CFO200 is suitable for a wide range of applications including colour sorting tasks in food packaging (e.g. crown caps and labels), colour inspection of interior parts in the automotive industry, recognition of colour marks in the printing industry, quality control in packaging, cosmetics, medicine and plastic products.
Injection moulding temperature control
The moldCONTROL inline thermography system detects variations in quality by using a high speed, high resolution infrared thermal imaging camera. It records the entire component in up to six different views and examines it. The principle is simple: a thermoIMAGER TIM thermal imaging camera records the infrared radiation emanating from the mould and visualises it. The temperature distribution provides a quality statement about incorrect temperature control of the mould, malfunction of the tool temperature, visible geometry errors and hidden defects. On the stand, the demonstration involves the temperature measurement of plastic injection moulded LEGO bricks.
Measuring gaps and edges
Also on the stand is a demonstration of the gapCONTROL non-contact laser profile scanner. This sensor is designed specifically for the measurement of gaps and edges. Users can quickly and easily set up and configure the scanner without requiring any specific knowledge or programming skills. Typical applications include measuring flushness, proximity, gap width and depth, height differences, centre position, angle, collision avoidance and overlapping edges. The latest additions to the gapCONTROL series, the 2611 and 2911, are even more compact and provide additional functionality including the ability to measure even smaller gaps.
