Identify edge bead inline to reduce waste by monitoring the edge shape with laser profilers. The LJ-X8000 can produce a stable profile (even on wet, black surfaces) to provide real-time coating process feedback.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Measure electrode coating thickness inline using opposing non-contact sensors. The CL-3000 can monitor thickness of wet coating, which minimizes the time between application and inspection to reduce waste. Simultaneously measure up to three positions across the web using a single controller to confirm thickness and uniformity.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

Detect edge waviness immediately after foil slitting using high-speed displacement sensors. The CL-3000 can capture the shape of the end face during motion thanks its high speed sampling and stability.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

By monitoring the gap between calendar rolls, it's possible to maintain tight control over sheet thickness. The LS-9000 Series can measure gaps as small as 10μm.

High-speed optical micrometer

LS-9000 series

The TM-3000 projects the 2D shape of a web's edge to measure thickness with high accuracy. By capturing the surrounding area, the TM can account for web decentering or roll runout to correctly measure the material thickness regardless of surface condition.

High-speed 2D Optical Micrometer

TM-3000 series

Detect chipping or dents in laser welded beads using 3D laser profilers. The measurement is unaffected by color or gloss of the weld, making inspection results stable through glare or bead shape variation.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Use a single sensor to accurately measure the position and float of each valve prior to welding, as well as inspecting for bead shape and spatter post-welding. The WI-5000 is unaffected by color or material changes.

3D Interference Measurement Sensor

WI-5000 series

Measure expansion during charge/discharge testing to understand shape changes during abnormalities that could impact battery safety.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Inline thickness measurement of electrical steel sheets is simple using non-contact displacement sensors. The built in alignment tools and dedicated jigs make the CL-3000 a reliable solution for accurate thickness measurement of sheets, even during fluttering.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

Confirm the number of laminates in a stack by measuring the overall thickness. The CL-3000 can catch if a motor core has more than the intended number of laminations layers to mitigate the risk of motor performance issues later.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

By using two TM-3000 Series sensors, you can check the outer diameter and cylindricity of lamination stacks with larger diameters.

High-speed 2D Optical Micrometer

TM-3000 series

Confirm insulating paper is in the proper position after assembly to prevent motor malfunction. The LJ-X8000 Series can measure multiple material types simultaneously, so the presence of shiny wire and metal next to the paper won't impact the measurement accuracy.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

After assembling the flat wire, inspect whether the insulating paper is in the correct position. The LJ-X8000 series can measure with high accuracy even when various materials such as metal, rectangular wire, and paper are mixed.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Inspect motor height after powder welding using the LJ-X8000 Series. The 3D laser profiler provides reliable 100% inspection with its high speed and measurement stability.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Confirming seal shape helps to prevent oil leakage during the lifespan of the motor. The LJ-X8000 Series can inspect the shape using height data, resulting in more reliable inspection than a general image sensor could provide.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Detect fine chips that can occur when inserting magnets into rotors using 3D inspection. The LJ-X8000 Series provides high resolution 3D images, making it possible to reliably inspect for tiny chips that are difficult to detect from a 2D image.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Check parallelism and float during ECU assembly to prevent joint contact failures or component detachment. The CL-3000 Series can accurately measure targets of any color without adjusting settings, making this inspection very stable.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

Proper installation of the O-ring is critical for preventing oil leakage that could damage the ECU. Using the LJ-X8000 Series, you can check for accurate assembly and record measured values inline.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Ensure the quality of leads prior to installation in harsh environments by inspecting 100% using laser displacement sensors. The high speed sensors are simple to use and can provide confidence that each part meets the strict requirements of automotive components.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

Inspect for substrate warpage without stopping the line using a 2D laser profiler. The LJ-X Series can check for gaps between the carrier and the substrate without having to stop and scan the part with a 1D sensor, which reduces inspection time.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

Stably measure the liquid level of glossy flow solder using the CL-3000. Solder bath can be difficult to measure due to its surface characteristics, but the confocal CL Series can handle the variation in shine and angle, supporting accurate level measurements.

Confocal Displacement Sensor
