Automatic height adjustment for material analysis

Material analysis is one of those manufacturing processes that require the use of sensors and advanced equipment to make everything flow smoothly. At different production sites, material analysis applications are performed using Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology. To ensure efficiency, the height of the LIBS sensor head must be taken into account, and adjustments made for it. For this purpose, ILD1320-100 sensors by Micro-Epsilon can be of great help.  The sensor is particularly suitable for measurement objects with different textures such as oxidized spots or extreme tilting angles. ILD1320-100 makes it possible to readjust the height of the LIBS sensor...


High precision adjustment using capacitive sensors

The manufacturing of thin-film solar cells requires the careful application of multiple layers to glass, which is a delicate process. It is an intricate operation that needs high-level precision in order to achieve the best product quality. With the aid of large coating systems, production is streamlined and the uniformity of each cell corresponds to a number of different factors.  One important factor is the distance between two perforated metal plates. To make sure that these plates are adjusted accurately, a five-point distance measurement is carried out. It is here that Micro-Epsilon’s capacitive sensors are used. These sensors act as...


3D profile measurement of components before laser cladding

In laser cladding, a melt pool is created on the surface of the component. Adding a powdered filler material creates a new, pore-free layer. A scanCONTROL laser profile scanner from Micro Epsilon was used to detect free forms and deviations of the components before laser processing. The scanning is done from multiple different direction and achieve reliable results regardless of the material properties. Obtaining the profile data before processing is crucial to derive optimum processing path. Alternatively, different sensors can be used depending on the application, for example repair, 3D printing, joining or coating and component size. The new scanCONTROL 3050-50/BL...


Precise alignment of the cathodes at the electron accelerator

With its new project, “bERLinPro,” Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin aims to develop a new technological basis for an “Energy Recovery Linac,” or ERL. But as it turns out, the ERL, that is, a linear accelerator with energy recovery would not be possible without Micro-Epsilon’s precise measurement technology. Micro-Epsilon’s DT6220 along with three capacitive flat sensors are a perfect fit for the electron source of the bERLinPro project.  The controller was picked because of its combination of features, including high safety standards and its ability to stand up against prevailing ambient conditions — very low temperatures where the controller may experience damage....


Biaxial inspection of adhesive bonds

When it comes to the properties of structural adhesives — including shear strength and tensile strength — stress tests are conducted on double-tube samples. The samples have a layer thickness of only a few millimeters, and they’re tested by applying tension or torsion. In other words, a double tube sample is an experimental design for testing structural adhesives. These two thin-walled tubes are attached to the adhesive for testing. Here, the relative movements of the parts that connect by a tube are measured as a function of the applied force and the torsional moment.  Now, as a result, a displacement...


Distance control of detectors for the examination of drill cores

Cox Analytical Systems provides X-ray analysis equipment to analyze the quality of drill core and mineral samples. The equipment can scan for elements of the periodic table in a single measurement run, and is upgraded with Micro-Epsilon’s laser profile scanners. This is because Micro-Epsilon scanCONTROL 2600 laser profile scanners are the perfect tools for geological analysis due to their high accuracy.  In order to cover large areas quickly and safely, the LLT2600-100 laser profile scanners are the best choice. These scanners are used to fulfill the requirement of measuring the distance as well as scanning surface profiles and irregularities. The...
