Jenoptik to present new production metrology at Control 2018

At the Control 2018 trade fair in Stuttgart, Jenoptik will be presenting several industrial metrology innovations, reflecting the latest trends in quality assurance. Visit Jenoptik in Hall 3, Stand 3501.

Roughness, contour measurement with Waveline W900

Jenoptik will present the latest generation of roughness and contour measuring devices, a new product line for optical shaft metrology as well as a brand new innovation in metrology: automatic optical inner bore inspection for diameters up to 5 mm.

Waveline W800 — for roughness and contour metrology

The new generation of Waveline W800 roughness and contour measuring devices was designed to meet a variety of customer requirements for flexible, precise and fast measuring processes. All measuring station configurations are modular and can easily be expanded at a later stage. An axis speed that is more than six times faster and an improvement in the ambient noise of approximately 30 percent demonstrate the significant performance improvement in comparison to the existing models. In addition, all measuring station configurations are modular and can easily be expanded at a later stage. The new W800 model series offers a suitable probing system for every field of application. It is particularly suited to many different measuring tasks in the measuring room, as the models typically include manual or semi-automated measuring processes. An additional benefit is the ease with which the probing systems can be swapped via a new magnetic quick-change adapter. This lends a very high degree of flexibility to daily routine measurements.

For users with high performance requirements regarding automation, measuring cycle times and measuring accuracy, the W900 performance model series from Jenoptik will be available from summer 2018.

Optical shaft measuring devices: Opticline CS, C and CA series

The devices from the new CS series have been rigorously designed for production-related applications and are optimized to meet specific requirements relating to the production and quality assurance of rotating parts. Customers in this industrial sector need fast and flexible gauging components for fully automated use in the production environment. The two new measuring systems, the CS155 and CS305, perfectly complement the range of Jenoptik optical shaft measuring machines that has been established for many years.

"With the CS series, we can offer high-quality measuring instruments to customers with average tolerance requirements," says Dr. Eric Rüland, Director of Sales for the Metrology business unit at Jenoptik. "In addition, the two products enable consistently reliable, operator-controlled inspections to the well-established quality that is associated with Jenoptik."

Many of the functionalities of the Opticline CS155 and Opticline CS305, such as automatic software-based measuring processes and several mechanisms for device self-monitoring, make it easier for the user to operate the equipment when carrying out quality assurance. The systems are equipped with the latest Tolaris Optic measuring and evaluation software. This user-friendly software allows for simple programming with graphic elements and also features an intuitive user interface for measuring and evaluation functions that is focused on measuring tasks.

In addition to the Opticline CS series, Jenoptik will also present the successful Opticline C series for the first time at the Fraunhofer Vision special show on "Contactless Measuring Technology" in Hall 6, Stand 6406.

As an additional highlight, the Opticline CA automation solution will make its debut in Stuttgart: a compact unit consisting of handling robots with workpiece storage and the Opticline CA318 shaft measuring system. It was designed and created by Jenoptik in cooperation with RoboMAX from Blumberg in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Detect the smallest imperfections in bores within the required cycle time with the Visionline IPS B5 and Visionline IPS B10 internal test sensors

If was previously only possible to inspect small bores (<15 mm) manually; but this has changed thanks to the development of surface inspection systems Visionline IPS B5 and Visionline IPS B10: The innovative camera and lighting technology as well as adaptive, dynamic masking and a high resolution allow for an automated full inspection of planar surfaces within the line cycle time. Both the IPS B10 stand-alone version and the concept study of the IPS B5 table-top model will be presented.

The measuring machines enable fast inspection of the entire bore surfaces, the inspection and measuring of the inner contours and the evaluation of defects. The sensors' 360° lens creates an image of the entire bore surface without using a rotating mechanism; as a result the sensor is robust and fast, thereby meeting the requirements for full product quality inspections when installed inline in a production line.

Quality assurance and control and other Jenoptik trade fair highlights

With the PROGRES GRYPHAX® series portfolio, Jenoptik demonstrates the versatility of its microscope cameras for quality and material control and life sciences applications. The powerful and high-resolution cameras, combined with user-friendly microscope camera software, upgrade each microscope into a modern digital work station. The smallest details can be examined extremely closely, materials scientifically analyzed and quality controls carried out precisely.

In addition, Jenoptik will present efficient objective lenses and beam expanders for precise laser material processing. With the new 1x-8x beam expander for wavelengths of 355 or 1030–1080 nm, solid quartz beam expanders and solid quartz F-theta objective lenses for high-power laser applications, Jenoptik provides high-quality solutions for laser-based micro-structuring, marking and labeling of a wide range of materials. Even the most demanding coating technologies—from DUV to FIR—will be presented, as well as high-precision customer-specific optical components. As a technology preview for customers interested in laser material processing and Industry 4.0, Jenoptik will present new approaches which feature optical systems as solutions for micro material processing.

There will be live demonstrations of all product innovations as well as other devices at Jenoptik’s exhibition stand in hall 3, stand 3501.
