Using scattered light measurement technology, the OptoShaft measuring system is able to measure waviness and roughness in the immediate vicinity of the production machine. Since the surface characteristic value Aq simultaneously records roughness information, the grinding or finish quality can also be assessed. This is particularly advantageous when setting up the machine tool. The sensor can also be positioned vertically and can thus also measure in bores using an attachment optics.
The optoNCDT 1760-1000 long-range laser sensor by Micro-Epsilon also measures at distances of up to 2m with up to 7.5kHz.
