Compact Laser Profile Scanner for Gap Measurements
Press release date: Jan 14, 2014
The new gapCONTROL 2611 and 2911 sensors make non-contact gap detection even easier and more accurate. The high-performance matrix of the gapCONTROL series also enables even smaller gaps to be measured. Compact design and advanced triggering capabilities facilitate integration into industrial environments, such as welding, joining and assembly processes. These laser profile scanners with integrated electronics do not require additional accessories for integration into process control environments. In addition to gap measurements, these sensors help to monitor flushness, overlapping, proximity, and height offsets. The user-friendly gapCONTROL Setup Software (included) configures the sensors, defines metrics and outputs measurement values. The measurement results can be used, for example, in the automotive industry for control of robots or for in-process quality assurance.
