JERUSALEM, April 27, 2015 — Optimet (Optical Metrology Ltd.) has introduced the ConoLine-100 noncontact laser line projection system (pictured) for measuring distances. It is suited for a variety of applications including tire mold inspection and laser welding and drilling. Designed for diffusive and semidiffusive surfaces, the optical line sensor uses a rotating mirror to produce laser line speeds up to 100 lines per second, and point sensor accuracy down to 1 μm. The adjustable line angle allows the sensor to scan undercuts, steep grooves and angles up to ±120°. Data processing functions are housed in the sensor head. Also new, the ConoPoint-10 noncontact point sensor is designed for distance, surface contour, 2-D profile, thickness and 3-D measurements. A periscope accessory measures bottom and side walls of holes with diameters as small as 6 mm. The ConoPoint-10 uses a collinear design that allows light to travel down and back on the same axis, enabling the sensor to inspect 90° angles, as well as complex geometries, steep groves and angles up to 150°. A faster, 20 kHz version of the ConoPoint-10, the ConoPoint-20, is suited for applications such as inspecting rubber tire grooves.
