Do you have problems with sensor repeatability?

Is Sensor Repeatibility an Issue?
The LR series combines simplicity with the repeatability now required for an ever-changing production environment. 
The LR series of sensors are designed to make the tough applications easy.  They are made to ignore backgrounds and colours as well as being unaffected by surface variations and angles.  No matter if the detection range is 50mm or 5000mm, the LR can provide a new standard of repeatability.
Compilation of Non-contact Measurement Techniques That Can Be Studied from Successful Examples in 9 Industries
This document introduces applications—grouped according to processes—of non-contact measuring instruments in 9 industries such as automotive, semiconductor, and steel processing. This document explains the measuring techniques and advantages in an easy-to-understand manner.
KEYENCE Releases an Adjustable Illumination Type Image Dimension Measurement System! Even Greater Improvements to Inspection Stability!
Even with reflected light, constant stable measurements are now possible! We hope that all those individuals who are using illumination with projectors and similar devices to perform inspections will download the catalogue today. Compare the performance of the new heads with that of your existing devices.
Learn from Actual Examples in the Medical Care Industry! The Key Points of Magnified Observation That Improve Quality
This document explains in an easy-to-understand manner the key points of observation with microscopes through over 30 actual examples of observation of targets such as stents, needles, catheters, pills, and cells.
[KAIZEN] What Are the Advantages to Using Vision Sensors to Enable Visualisation of Inspection Processes?
This document introduces the way to easily use vision sensors to enable data collection, traceability, and other ways to visualise inspections that are not possible when done with the human eye.
[New Product] Ultra-compact, Fixed-type Code Reader with Improved Reading Capability
This code reader is equipped with an advanced reading algorithm and has an ultra-compact body that enables it to be installed in a wide variety of locations on equipment. Even codes that are dirty, tilted, or move at high speeds can be read accurately. For details, see the catalogue.
Detections That Were Difficult with Reflective Sensors Can Be Done Easily with This Vision Sensor!
Because it captures the whole surface of the target, the Vision Sensor IV Series solves the following problems that are common with reflective sensors.

  • Unstable detections due to position misalignment
  • Unstable detections due to uncertain workpiece orientation
  • Inability to perform simultaneous detections of multiple locations
  • Inconvenient sensor adjustments during retooling

For details on how to solve these problems, see the catalogue.
