The Microtrak™ 3 TGS system uses the principle of laser triangulation to perform a one dimensional measurement of a target. The laser projects a beam of light onto a surface which is then reflected back. A CMOS array detects the position of the returned beam and is converted into a distance measurement. Auto Gain is used to optimize the laser power for the surface being measured. The laser is suitable for measuring all types of diverse surfaces such as metallic, wood, ceramic, steel, or plastics in all colors including black.
Customers select the Microtrak™ TGS laser sensor because it:
- is a complete standalone thickness system
- makes a synchronized thickness measurement
- provides a process control signal when targets are out of specification
