More precision

Academic institutes, universities

A particular interest of Micro-Epsilon is the promotion of research in academic institutes and universities. High precision measuring devices are required for research in these institutions; new techniques for sensors or new measuring principles often also emerge in this context. New possible applications often emerge from interesting projects.

A desired or undesired expansion of an object is always combined with a temperature change. This can already start or prevent a minimum expansion process. Several product groups are available for monitoring ...


The width of the object is often an important dimension for the dimension control. The width can in some respects also be interpreted as thickness and in this case can be resolved using thickness measurement. Different ...

Experimental tests on a drop impact tester

In the automotive industry manufacturers go to great lengths to improve the passive safety of all vehicles in a collision. The so-called crash absorbers join the fenders with the longitudinal bearers and taken overall they ...

Water depth measurement on a river model

With investigations using realistic models of flowing waters, the river bed must be sampled as accurately as possible and without physical contact. To do this, the laser-based optical displacement measurement system, optoNCDT, ...

Deformation measurement on lightweight structures

Specially designed measurement systems, which record the surface contours without reactive effects on the lightweight structures, are employed for the examination of component deformations under load. To achieve this, two laser-based ...

Measurement of the radial deviation on superconducting magnets

At the Institute for Solids and Materials Research (IWF) Dresden a motor with magnetic bearings has been developed using high temperature superconductors which can be employed for feed pumps for liquid nitrogen. The most important application ...

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors is a wide application area. Basically there are distinctions between non-destructive/destructive, non-contact/with contact and one-side/two-sided thickness measurement. The Micro-Epsilon measuring ...


A groove can occur in many different objects as a sustained depression. Whether a groove is desired or not is the question. If a single track measurement of a groove is sufficient, laser point sensors, confocal, capacitive or eddy current sensors ...

3D profile measurement of soil samples

German automation company Visutronik GmbH from Neubrandenburg, Germany has developed a laser scanningdevice to measure surface soil samples for subsequent geometric analysis: roughness, surface type expansion (e.g. earthworm courses), etc. The core ...

High precision measurement of special profile sections in the production line

In the factory research department a fully automatic system for optical geometry measurement has been developed, constructed and integrated into a production line for lift profile rail sections. The system acquires the deviation of±0.2mmfrom straightness ...

Eddy current sensors in tribology testers

Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used for various measurement tasks in tribology testers of the ITR in Clausthal. They withstand the harshest ambient conditions there as they measure directly on the shaft in the tester. A tester with water lubrication ...

Active damping of liquid-cooled centrifuges

At certain configurations of speed, filling level and design parameters, liquid-filled industrial centrifuges tend to produce unstable running characteristics which can lead to failure of the centrifuge. The instability, which arises due to interaction between the ...
