MICRO EPSILON: MEASURING THE WORKPIECE POSITION IN GRINDING MACHINES
Inductive sensors from Micro-Epsilon are based on the eddy current principle and designed for non-contact measurement of displacement, distance, position, oscillation and vibrations.
World's greatest range of sensors - ideal for harsh industrial environments
Inductive sensors do not recognize non-conductive materials. For this reason, dust, dirt and oil do not affect the measurement. This fact, combined with the sensor’s robust, temperature-compensated design, enable measurements in harsh, industrial environments.
- Robust and reliable sensors IP67
- Pressure-resistant models up to 2,000 bar
- Resistant to oil, dust & dirt
During the grinding process, the position between the grinding tool and the workpiece must be constantly monitored. This prevents excessive stress, damage and destruction of the workpiece and the grinding tool. For reliable position monitoring, inductive sensors based on eddy currents are used. The inductive sensors achieve accuracies in the single-digit micrometer range when measuring the workpiece position in grinding machines.
Ideal for fluctuating temperatures
The high precision measurement results provided by sensors can be influenced by fluctuating temperatures. However, every inductive eddyNCDT measuring system from Micro-Epsilon is equipped with an active temperature compensation feature that reconciles any thermal influences.
- Active temperature compensation of sensor, cable and controller
- Temperature range -40°C to +200°C and higher
