New Orbit LTH Laser Triangulation System from AMETEK Solartron provides high-accuracy, non-contact linear measurement for quality control in precision manufacturing applications such as hard disk drives and products castings.

Abstract:
A non-contact laser for fast, high-performance gauging has been introduced by AMETEK Solartron Metrology (www.solartronmetrology.com). The new Orbit® LTH laser triangulation unit delivers 0.02 F.S. (full scale) reading over 2 or 10 mm measurement ranges. This yields accuracy up to .05 µm with the 2 mm stroke. The laser can be networked with as many as 150 different sensors by connecting to Solartron's Orbit 3 digital measurement system.

High-Precision Non-Contact Laser for Diffuse and Specular Gauging Applications

Bognor Regis, UK | Posted on July 11th, 2013

Applications include high-volume gauging for quality control of metal and plastic products that could be damaged by contact measurement instruments.
The sensor's auto-gain circuitry adjusts power based on feedback from the material, providing better readings on difficult surfaces. It can switch between diffuse and specular modes to measure reflective and non-reflective materials. A bridging function can be programmed to account for drop-offs in materials with gaps or holes.

Multiple outputs are available, including USB, Ethernet, TCP, RS232 and Modbus.
Solartron Metrology is a world leader in design and manufacture of precision digital and analog dimensional  LVDT gauging probes, displacement sensors, optical linear encoders and associated instrumentation. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of more than US$3.3 billion.
