The Optoscan software of optomet is used for data acquisition, analysis and visualization. It forms in combination with an optomet scanning Vibrometer the optimal solution for imaging vibration measurement. If the scanned, point-by-point measurement data are summarized in the correct phase, meaningful representations of vibrations and waves on the test object can be obtained.

With Optoinspect 3D inline of scapos can be great 3D data sets Compare quickly and automatically with optimal geometries. In this way, each individual component is checked inline and can run within the production process. The maximum parallelization and reuse of calculated results is obtained. In the new version 2.7 in particular, these lead to fast processing of the point clouds and thus enable real-time capability data analysis.

Researchers at ETH Zurich have invented a simple touch sensor so that robots can reliably grip fragile or slippery objects. With the help of machine learning, the optical sensors measure the forces acting precisely and with high resolution. In addition, the material hardness can be tested with the touch sensor and touches can be recorded digitally.


pepper0518With the R200 and R201, the product architecture of photoelectric sensors from Pepperl + Fuchs opens up applications with larger working distances. Both series - like the compact R100, R101 and R103 - consistently offer all optoelectronic functional principles in a mounting-specific and now larger design.

The telecentric lens commonly found in industrial Image Processing Mission. In three-dimensional measurements, it sometimes even surpasses the accuracy of non-contact or laser-based measurement methods. The telecentricity offers the highest accuracy and repeatability. Below we present you New ago like the telecentric Lens for white LED light from Vision & Control:

accretech0419Production or workshop managers know the dilemma: The surface parameters of a workpiece must be measured quickly and at short notice and the measuring room is too far away and / or occupied. For this purpose, Accretech has further developed its portable surface measuring devices of the "Handysurf" product line.

Interferometry is the first choice one optical measurement methodwhen it comes to measuring surfaces with high precision. Nortus Optronic now presents the new one interferometer D7 from Difrotec with, according to its own statements, unprecedented accuracy. The difference between the measured and the actual shape is less than lambda / 1000 (<0,6 nm)

baumer1012Baumerpresents new sensors from the field of optical sensors with the powerful, comfortable and safe O500 series. Three sensor types are initially available: a light sensor with background suppression, a "Smart Reflect" light barrier without a reflector and a reflex light barrier, also for reflective surfaces.

GOM0416In response to increased production and the resulting short measurement times, companies are increasingly using automated measurement and inspection solutions. For this purpose, GOM has developed the optical 3D coordinate measuring machine "Atos Scanbox 4105". The standardized plug-and-play measuring cell is suitable for small and medium-sized components with a maximum weight of 100 kg and a maximum component size of 500 mm.

Through common Molding process such as sheet metal forming and injection molding component measurement Deviations from the target specification. Such Plastic- Measuring sheet metal components is often complex and involves great effort and high costs. In order to compensate for these deviations when measuring and to simulate the installation situation, components have previously had to be clamped in complex measuring devices. GOM this measurement process can now be carried out using the newly developed technology Virtual clamping greatly simplify.

Baumer0314The new optical edge sensor "Poscon 3D" from Baumeris the most powerful in its class. The Poscon 3D does very reliably what was previously only possible with complex laser measuring systems. In addition, it is easy to install and operate. Its numerous properties make the edge sensor a versatile problem solver for measuring edge positions, object or column widths. The sensor does not need a separate reflector.
