This brochure presents Micro-Epsilon’s Indusensor EDS series of linear inductive displacement sensors.
Non-contact laser line displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are playing a pivotal role in the automatic positioning of synchroniser discs during production. The discs, which are manufactured for use in automatic vehicle transmissions, need to be accurately positioned under a laser prior to deburring.
This video highlights the capabilities of Scancontrol. Laser scanners in the Scancontrol series are said to be among the highest-performing profile sensors available with respect to accuracy and measuring rate.
The EddyNCDT 3300 eddy-current measuring system from Micro-Epsilon is said to be one of the most powerful displacement measurement systems available.
The CapaNCDT 6500 series is a multi-channel capacitive displacement measurement system that offers sub-nanometre resolution, excellent temperature stability and rapid changeover of sensors without any re-calibration required. Due to its extreme resolution and flexibility, the system can provide high-accuracy displacement, positioning, thickness, gap, drift or creep measurements.
