Z-LASER Supports Manufacturers of Laser Displacement Sensors

Z-LASER Supports Manufacturers of Laser Displacement Sensors

With the increasing level of automation and acceleration of manufacturing processes and the simultaneous demand for higher standards of quality, optical 3D measuring systems are increasingly coming into focus.

As soon as the geometry of an object is relevant for a measurement, laser triangulation has become one of the optical standard measurement principles and offers great advantages over other inspection methods.

Since an end user usually prefers not to deal with the development of a respective setup, many companies nowadays offer complete setups in the form of turnkey solutions. These triangulation sensors already contain all the hardware required for recording the 3D coordinates. Depending on the manufacturer, these sensors either provide the user with 3D data for further processing or with ready-to-use measurement results.

Typical requirements on the laser for integration into a displacement sensor:

  • small size (especially length)
  • consistent projection quality
  • high flexibility in the choice of optical configurations (thin lines or big DoF’s)
  • simple mechanical and electrical integration
  • customer-specific designs
  • open communication interface (I²C)
    • simple adjustment of the output power
    • readout of operating parameters (running time, temperatures, ON/OFF cycles)
    • service before reaching the end of life “Predictive Maintenance”

Z-LASER can support manufactures of such systems with their demanding task by offering standard or customized products for a big variety of sensor setups. Based on our 35 years of market and application experience, we would like to offer you following solutions for your demanding laser sensors:
