azbil’s new High-Performance Laser Sensor, the K1G series, far exceeds conventional norms when it comes to performance and functions, allowing you to make the measurements you want.
A combination of a CMOS linear image sensor and collimated lasers ensures high-accuracy workpiece position measurement.

The K1G has the highest display resolution (0.1 µm) and fastest measurement cycle (250 µs) in its class. This enables the K1G to reliably detect and visualize tiny variations and high-speed fluctuations that are often overlooked by conventional sensors.
Up until now glass edges and surfaces were checked offline by operators for defects such as chips. The K1G series, however, makes high-speed in-line measurements with a high degree of accuracy. This means that fast, highly accurate glass measurements can now be made regardless of how the edge surface is processed.
Azbil’s unique FDN algorithm, which utilizes Fresnel diffraction phenomena and sophisticated high resolution technologies, has achieved detection accuracy to 1µm.
The detection principle also works well for transparent object detection. Azbil developed a special lens to achieve almost perfectly parallel optical light. Afterwards a CMOS linear sensor was added as the light-sensitive element to enable visual perception for workpiece position. These functions enable the K1G to detect small variations that conventional sensors are not able to detect.
