Stroke and Positioning
Realtime feedback for position or stroke is important for both process control and process improvement. The target's speed, distance, and accessibility will all impact which type of sensor best suits your needs. Take a look at the typical approaches for position measurement below, or feel free to request a consultation with a local measurement expert.
Confocal sensors do not have the dead zones characteristic of triangulation sensors, and can therefore measure into smaller and deeper holes more reliably.
Confocal Displacement Sensor
Using thrubeam sensors, roller position can be accurately measured at high line speeds.
High-speed optical micrometer
Check for press fit failure with contact displacement sensors.
