Reliable measurements for any material and surface types
[Controller] Solutions for any in-line measurement application
For measurement of rattling or inclined "transparent objects or mirror surfaces"
Ultra-high-precision, high-speed type ZW-8000
High-precision in-line measurement of rattling or inclined shiny, thin, or minute parts
Mirror surfaces (inclined or curved surfaces)
Omron's, unique, white light confocal displacement sensor provides higher resolution measurements of angled or curved and shiny surfaces than traditional laser displacement sensors.
The ZW-8000 Series can measure the top and bottom surfaces of a thin transparent sheet or film by separating the light reflected from both surfaces, which is difficult with conventional laser displacement sensors.
Thanks to its very small spot diameter, the ZW-8000 Series can measure targets on minute objects extremely precisely, which is impossible with a conventional laser displacement sensor with a large spot diameter.
Using conventional sensors, the measurement accuracy can be achieved by increasing the averaging times, but downside is that this lowers the profile reproduction accuracy. The ZW-7000 acquires a sharp profile by sampling as fast as 20 μs without averaging, solving this issue.
