New application finder for laser profile sensors

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Looking to support growing demand for 2D/3D laser profile scanners, precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has further developed its scanCONTROL range of sensors together with an intelligent software tool to support sensor/application selection.

The web-based Application Finder allows users to search for the appropriate laser profile sensor from the company's scanCONTROL series by considering three application-related search criteria: material, measurement and industry.

Within each of these sections, users can further refine their searches by clicking on a variety of filters.

For example, when searching by material, the user can select from a list of materials to be measured such as metal, wood, plastic or rubber. On selecting one of these, the user is then presented with a list of different customer applications for that particular material where scanCONTROL sensors are utilised.

When choosing a particular application from this list, the user is then provided with an overview of the scanCONTROL sensor model that was used in that application, including summary details of the measurement task and supporting photos/images.

At this point, links are also provided to more detailed information such as product catalogues and brochures, as well as a 'request for quote' option.

Chris Jones, managing director at Micro-Epsilon UK, commented: "The Application Finder looks at product selection from the customer's own perspective, giving them the opportunity to search by application criteria, unlike most traditional product-focused websites and configurators."
