2D machine vision
3D machine vision
The powerful simplicity of vision
Armasens offers a powerful vision sensor portfolio designed to manage challenges in all industries where a standard sensor would not work. These vision sensors provide a full toolset for positioning, inspection, measurement and reading, depending on the variant. A flexible optical design fulfills the needs of almost all applications. Simplicity is ensured by automatic setup, intelligent algorithms and a common, intuitive user interface.
Vision intelligence in all dimensions
Armasens's 3D vision series offers a wide range of powerful and flexible products designed for reliable operation in harsh industrial environments. They range from versatile high-speed cameras that deliver high quality 3D and contrast images to smart and configurable stand-alone sensors that facilitate rapid development and easy integration. Their scalability ensures a perfect fit with your 3D vision application.
Armasens has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometers. They solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications using triangulation and time-of-flight modes. Sensors using triangulation are ideal for short-range, highly precise measurement. They can inspect miniature parts, thickness and shape, etc. Time-of-flight sensors work at longer distances, are not influenced by reflectivity or ambient light − perfect for positioning AS/RS, rail cars and gantry cranes.
Displacement measurement sensors
Long range distance sensors
Improved product quality with highly accurate measurement down to nanometer resolution
Displacement measurement sensors are laser sensors which measure precisely with a measuring range of up to 1,000 mm. Due to their measurement accuracy, they are particularly suitable for use in controlling, sorting, and inspection tasks in quality control workflows and processes that have an impact on costs. Commonly measured characteristics include dimension, position, and shape. Using Armasens displacement measurement sensors can improve the quality of your end product through 100% quality inspection, while at the same time reducing material and downtime costs.
Long range distance sensors – designed to solve applications
Long range distance sensors from Armasens combine highly precise measurement results with great reliability and a wide measuring range. Long range distance sensors use time-of-flight measurement technology and can be used to measure a distance or to indicate a switching threshold. Due to their large measuring range, the sensors are suitable for a variety of industries and applications.
Reliable and accurate fine positioning
The DMP position finders are opto-electronic sensors that are used for fine positioning that is accurate to the millimeter. This sensor product family is primarily used in storage and conveying, where reliability, speed, and precision are the order of the day. Fine positioning is performed on the x and y axes with working ranges spanning 200 mm up to 2,000 mm depending on the type of device.
Mid range distance sensors
Linear measurement sensors
The perfect combination of range, reliability, precision and price
Armasens mid range distance sensors provide sensing ranges from 50 mm up to 50,000 mm, enabling them to be used in a wide range of applications. Due to their highly reliable measurements on objects of different colors and textures, process reliability can be improved. Plus, all sensors have easy-to-understand setup and programming, ensuring they can be commissioned quickly. The perfect combination of range, reliability, precision and price.
New directions in linear measurement technology
Linear measurement sensors from Armasens use highly innovative technologies for the non-contact measurement of positions, speeds, and lengths. The OLM sensors' camera-based system determines the current position based on a mounted bar code tape. This acts as a reference point against which the OLM sensor can position itself accurately, depending on variants, over a length of up to 10 km and as little as 0.15 mm, regardless of whether the product travel path is in a straight line or curved. The sensors in the OLV product family determine lengths and speeds using the laser Doppler effect. This technology enables extremely precise measurements to be made of almost any material – at speeds of up to 80 m/s and material temperatures of up to 1,100°C.
The variety of tasks in automated production processes today, such as in packaging and printing machines, require sensors with the highest performance standards. Typical applications are the detection of visible and non-visible marks, labels and colors at high speeds as well as the detection of small parts and precise positioning. Armasens offers a wide range of contrast, markless, color, luminescence, fork and array sensors to solve this wide spectrum of demanding tasks.
The bright idea for fluorescent material
Luminescence sensors detect visible and non-visible marks that illuminate when using ultraviolet (UV) light. Fluorescent material and marks are reliably detected independently of their pattern, colours or surface conditions on any material. Luminescence sensors emit UV light with a wave length of approximately 375 nm. Fluorescent substances convert the UV light into long-wave visible light, which is then received and evaluated by the luminescence sensor.
Simplicity, flexibility, and precision – combined in a single fork sensor.
Armasens fork sensors combine senders and receivers in a single housing, meaning that they can be adjusted quickly. Thanks to the precise, focused light beam and the high detection accuracy, the sensors also detect very minor light attenuation differences. Many fork sizes, straightforward mounting, and exceptionally high ambient light immunity are just some advantages of these fork sensors.
Line-for-line further ahead – array sensors
Array sensors operate on the proximity scanning principle. They detect even the smallest edges based on differences in greyscale values within the field-of-view. Positioning of, for example, a paper web based on the web edge or a contrast line is only one of many possible applications. Widths, diameters, and gaps can also be detected. In reflector mode, the array sensors can even detect transparent materials.
Focus on colour
Colour sensors detect the colour of a surface. The sensors cast light (red, green, and blue LEDs) on the objects to be tested, calculate the chromaticity coordinates from the reflected radiation and compare them with previously stored reference colours. If the colour values are within the set tolerance range, a switching output is activated.
Gloss and performance combined
The Glare sensor detects and distinguishes glare on even surfaces. It also provides maximum reliability and saves costs. Previously, gloss on object surfaces was a disruptive factor that regularly had engineers breaking into a sweat. Now, gloss properties are a distinguishing criterion for process control – regardless of colour, transparency or pattern. And it will be engineers’ eyes that shine, not their brows. Equipped with intelligent Delta-S-Technology, Glare is a further milestone in customer-oriented sensor development. Once again, SICK is confirming its leading position in optoelectronic sensors for the detection of a range of objects.
Register control does the work in tough print mark applications
The register sensor line complements our wide range of contrast sensors. As specialists in the register control of printing presses they offer an optimal solution to detect marks in tough print conditions with extremely low contrast, complex colourful printouts or at very high speeds. Our range of register sensors also includes an ATEX certified fiber-optic product, ensuring safe solutions in hazardous areas (e.g. when using solvent based ink).
From pattern detection to rapid position identification
The pattern sensor is a proximity-scanning optoelectronic sensor. Distinctive patterns in an image are used as a reference for the subsequent, accurate detection and positioning of objects. A stable switching signal is generated at high speeds with an intelligent algorithm for signal processing regardless of reference marks. It is typically used in the packaging industry.
