Nanovea profilometer offers online inspection
3D non-contact profilometer
Nanovea has announced that its 3D non-contact profilometer will now have optional online capability for automated inspection and report generation.
With this advancement, the company said the profilometer can now integrate into quality control environments.
Crucial applications once inspected with vision and/or touch probe will now be inspected with the assurance of high-speed, non-contact nanometer measurement.
Nanovea said this is especially critical to batch production with tight tolerance levels that can be easily monitored to ensure quality control via online communication.
With this feature, applications can be automatically scanned and analysed based on instructions found on a server database.
The online inspection feature allows automatic product ID scan with a barcode reader (could also be manually entered in); the product ID is then checked against predefined pass/fail and measurement requirements stored on a company database.
The part is automatically measured, and upon completion a report is generated.
The report and the pass/fail information is automatically sent back to the server and stored with that part number.
Measurement speeds range from 1m/s and 31,000 points/sec with nanometer accuracies.
There are various scan types, analysis functions and size options that can be customised to fit applications throughout all industries.
The OptoNCDT range from Micro-Epsilon is said to represent the highest precision in laser-based optical displacement and position measurement.
This video presents the OptoNCDT 1700BL series of blue laser sensors from Micro-Epsilon. The sensors are said to offer significant benefits for users who need to measure the position or displacement of red-hot glowing metals and also translucent targets. Each sensor features optimised high-precision optics, innovative CMOS technology and an integrated controller. The six sensors in the series have measuring ranges from 20mm up to 1,000mm.
The Wiresensor mechanics of the Z60, P96, P115 and P200 series from Micro-Epsilon are designed for easy mounting of an incremental or absolute encoder.
The EddyNCDT 3010 from Micro-Epsilon is a non-contacting displacement measuring system operating on the eddy-current principle.
Pacer’s Luxell FPA series is a linear array of detectors, which is available in three sizes: 64, 128 and 256 pixels.
