Vision Components provides OEM laser profilers for checking the angular accuracy in sheet metal bending press brakes. The VCnano3D-Z 3-D sensors reach measuring rates up to 400 Hz and a typical accuracy of less than ±0.1 degree. They can be directly connected to the machine’s PLC for real-time control of the contact pressure. Featuring a compact IP67 housing and large field of view, the sensors are easy to integrate and can be used with different dies without any conversion or adjustment. The high-performance blue laser and ambient light suppression technology ensure reliable detection on shiny and reflective surfaces.
