Micro-Epsilon has launched the "thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202", a new modular thickness measurement system in C-frame construction. Equipped with innovative calibration technology, and supporting different physical measurement methods, the system offers a unique range of measurement solutions. Depending on requirements, the user can select between capacitive technology, confocal, triangulation sensors, or laser line triangulation. The latter offers significant advantages, particularly with respect to the frequent problem of tilted and rippled test objects in the strip metal field. With a correction procedure system developed by Micro-Epsilon, precise thickness measurement with micrometre precision is possible for the first time, even if the target is tilted. Only by using this correction system can such measuring systems achieve the leap from the laboratory into the industrial reality of steel mills and tyre manufacturing.
Even after years of service, the integrated calibration technology can prove the precision of the system at any time in less than a second, allowing easy monitoring of the test equipment for quality management purposes.
Due to its modular design, the thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202 series enables damaged sensors to be replaced easily at any time, even in harsh industrial environments, without having to disassemble the whole system.
The thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202 is used for measuring the thickness of strip materials such as metal, plastic or wood, as well as materials in sheet form. These materials can be up to 500mm wide and up to 50mm thick. In order to measure the entire width of the material, the C-frame can be extended with the aid of linear axes to provide traversing thickness measurement systems. The CSP2008 universal controller and an IPC-based solution with a comprehensive software package for visualisation, documentation and remote support are available as analytical tools.
