MESH Automation has used lasers to measure products or to measure the distance from a device to a product or product feature. The need for measuring a product is needed on many automation applications. Contact measuring devises such as LVDT cannot always be used in an automated environment. Lasers offer the advantage of non-contact measurement.
Laser Measurement Solutions from MESH Automation
In some cases, the measurement is used as a quality guide to reject or accept a part after processing. Additionally, it has been used by MESH to identify a product (correct gauge or height) so the machine can be configured automatically for processing it.
MESH’s experience in measuring products is extensive and is rooted in our machine tooling DNA. Thermal expansion, tooling tolerances, process variability and selecting the right laser model are all factors in integrating the correct solution. Lasers are just one tool in the toolbox that we use when the challenge presents itself.
While every business has its own needs, MESH Automation recognizes basic engineering solutions that often work across the board for different industries. For this reason our highly experienced team of engineers has developed a number of pre-engineered solutions that meet incredibly varied needs, from manual operations to automated robotics. So, instead of starting totally from scratch, many of our customers are able to get going with high-tech equipment that has already been tested and is ready to go.
