Height measurement on foils with highly reflective surfaces

Description

The height of so-called infeed stacks is to be measured from above with an optical sensor. The difficulty here is that there are foils with silver and golden surfaces on top of the stack. Thus, a sensor is needed that can handle these highly reflective surfaces and which can deliver the required accuracy of 0.02 mm.

Solution

Two ODSL 9 optical distance sensors are used. Measurement is performed from above on the infeed stack at a distance of approximately 250 mm. The two optical distance sensors supply stable measurement results with an accuracy of 0.02 mm in spite of highly reflective surfaces.
