IL Series Multi-function Analogue Laser Sensor Applications

Variety of heads enables abundance of applications

POSITIONING

Robot arm positioning

Robot arm positioning

Detect robot arm chuck precision on the X-, Y- and Z-axes. The long range head enables detection from long distances.

Vision system CCD height positioning

Vision system CCD height positioning

Position the vision system on the Z-axis during substrate inspection.This device delivers stable detection, even for different targetworkpiece materials.

Roll chuck position detection

Roll chuck position detection

Detect the position of roll chucks for film winding. Save a huge amount of adjustment time, even for different equipment.

Cutting machine workpiece positioning

Cutting machine workpiece positioning

Detect torch heights when cutting steel plates. This device enables stable detection, even for different workpiece material.

THICKNESS

Press processing thickness differentiation

Press processing thickness differentiation

Differentiate between steel plates or catch two sheets going through at once with thickness differentiation in the press process. The long range head enables differentiation from long distances, even for large-sized pressing.

Thickness/width measurements of building
material boards

Thickness/width measurements of building
material boards

Thickness and width can be simultaneously measured immediately after the extrusion process. In addition, man-hours for setup and product changeovers are reduced using the thickness calibration function.

Single/double-sheet substrate differentiation

Single/double-sheet substrate differentiation

Differentiate single/double sheets when transferring substrates. This device enables stable detection, even for different substrate material.

Sheet material thickness detection

Sheet material thickness detection

This device constantly monitors thickness differentiation of sheet material. The multi-point head allows you to detect irregularities in the thickness of edges and in the bodies of materials.

SEAM/COUNT

Rubber sheet seam detection

Rubber sheet seam detection

Detect seams in rubber sheets. Sensors above and below the workpieces enable stable detection, even when the sheets flip-flop.

Detecting welding seams

Detecting welding seams

Detect welding seams on steel plates. The Height Difference Count Filter Function enables stable detection.

Stacker counting & uneven checks

Stacker counting & uneven checks

The IL Series counts how many items are being transported along a conveyer, in addition to the non-contact detection of uneven stacking in the stacker. Reliable detection regardless of colour changes in the targets.

Counting air conditioner filter sheets

Counting air conditioner filter sheets

Count the number of air conditioner filter sheets. The High Pass Filter Function enables stable detection, even for workpiece whose height is not constant.

HEIGHT

Detection of stage inclination prior to
furnace transportation

Detection of stage inclination prior to
furnace transportation

Calculates the inclination by measuring multiple points on the stage prior to transferring to the furnace. Transferring the product after correcting the inclination allows for consistent temperature control.

Liquid level detection in a tank of chocolate

Liquid level detection in a tank of chocolate

This device constantly monitors the level of liquid surfaces without contacting the liquid. Using a long range head makes it possible to detect levels from far away, even in tight spaces.

Differentiation of different types of plastic
components

Differentiation of different types of plastic
components

Reliable differentiation, even in highly variable small parts, using a highprecision sensor head. Even when the variety changes, external changeover of up to 4 patterns is possible by setting items in the bank function.

Double-chip prevention/
chip presence detection

Double-chip prevention/
chip presence detection

Check whether chips are present or not, or if two are present by mistake during chip transfer. This device enables stable detection, even during high-speed transfers.

CONTROL

Control marking height

Control marking height

Control the distance between the head of marking instruments and workpiece. This device enables stable detection, even for different target workpiece.

Control sheet roll diameter

Control sheet roll diameter

Control feed speed and tension rolling with constant monitoring of sheet diameter during rolling and unrolling processes.

Control welding torch height

Control welding torch height

Control the height of welding torches. Boost welding precision through constant, exhaustive monitoring.

Height controls of a hoop material

Height controls of a hoop material

By using a long range head type of sensor range head, it is possible to control slack height of materials such as steel plates and sheet materials even during transportation. The sensor head can be installed at a distance of up to 1000 mm.

SHAPE-WARP

Warpage detection in ceramic boards

Warpage detection in ceramic boards

As the sensor head is compact, multiple point measurements of small-scale boards are possible. By calculating the measurement data externally, simultaneous measurements of positioning and warpage are possible.

Detect H-beam flange warp

Detect H-beam flange warp

Detect the warp of H-beam flanges at multiple points before using a correction mechanism. Use a long range head for compatibility with many different kinds of workpiece.

STROKE/VIBRATION

Press stroke control

Press stroke control

Proactively prevent press defects by constantly monitoring the amount of press strokes and the bottom dead centre of presses. Use a long range head to enable compatibility with large-sized pressing machine.

Traverser stroke control

Traverser stroke control

Prevent rolling disorders by controlling traverser strokes while measuring the amount that bobbins roll to provide feedback to the instrument.
