Brake Line Tip Inspection Posted in: Confocal Displacement Sensors – Tags:

In the automotive manufacturing industry, engineers frequently use a precision scanning confocal displacement sensor to inspect the surface of a steel brake line tip for scratches and defects.

White-light distance sensors can measure distance and position to within tens of nanometers. The measurement pen aims down to the sample that is moved on a linear XY stage, and the scanning station includes a turret of several confocal measurement pens. Users can also order single-channel systems.
