Displacement, often used interchangeably with distance, measures the distance between the sensor and the target. Laser displacement sensors and confocal displacement sensors are ideal for any non-contact distance measuring applications. Lasers are typically chosen for high-speed measurements or when the target is too delicate or too hot for tactile probes.
Below are some examples of past applications, but this list is not exhaustive. Our sensors can be used for many different displacement applications.
