But the company goes far beyond simply manufacturing and supplying its high-quality products. It also offers a full range of services and technically trained staff to solve its clients’ most challenging applications, combining superior technology with unparalleled support. Part of this support is in the form a special website dedicated to teaching users how to conduct different types of measurements.
Keyence’s website, Measurement Library, is an excellent source for finding the optimal measurement method for a target. The site offers downloadable measurement guides for various measuring methods by application. Each guide introduces measurement principles and provides an easy-to-understand explanation of the instruments and methods needed to complete these measurements. The site includes guides for measuring: thickness and width, height and step difference, inner and outer diameter, vibration and eccentricity, positioning and position control, bow and flatness, profile and gap/clearance.
The guide for measuring by position control, for example, covers measurement using a reflective sensor and a thrubeam sensor. It offers a step-by-step measurement method for each instrument, and highlights the appropriate applications.
The guide for thickness and width, on the other hand, offers information on how to measure the thickness of transparent glass, films and membranes, sheet on a roll, or measurement by passing a workpiece between two sensors.
