  • Looking for a solution for detecting 10μm of Power steering parts…

  • Using expensive Touch Probes for Updating the wear of Grinding Stone?! Looking for more economical solution…

  • Air sensor is low accuracy that confirming adhesion of Precision Component for PC cannot be done properly…

  • Contact displacement sensors used for measurement inside CNC cylindrical grinding machines cannot survive the harsh internal environment.

  • Radiation degrades photomicrosensors fast and we have to replace them every two or three months.

  • We are experiencing difficulties because the detection of double sheet metal feeding with expensive contact displacement sensors costs too much.

  • False detection of photoelectric sensors results in damage to HDD disks. We are experiencing problems because of the production of defective disks.

  • Radiation degrades optical fiber sensors. Are there any sensors durable under radiation exposure?

  • The switch is not broken but false signals frequently occurs. It is necessary to detect the opening and closing of disk brake pads without fail!

  • Is high-precision positioning for the driving part of equipment possible with stepper motors?

  • The signal point of proximity sensors varies with changes of the external environment.

  • Can small-diameter drills (ø 5 mm) length detection be made more reliable? Laser sensors are prone to fail in adverse environments.

  • We need to correct the deviation of the X-Y axes of the table of semiconductor inspection devices.

  • Can the double feeding of paper as thin as 0.1 mm really be prevented by microswitches?

  • Is there any alternative to contact detection by installing an intermediate unit onto proximity sensors?

  • We have some problems with the presence detection of wafers for semiconductor devices with photoelectric sensors.

  • We need to correct the deviation of printing plates in micron increments.

  • We are experiencing difficulties because proximity sensors cannot achieve high precision for bobbin positioning in automatic knitting machines.

  • Can 1 mm or smaller slight movements of diaphragms be detected stably with switches?

  • There is no mounting space for a photoelectric sensor in workpiece detection with a robot.
