Sensors help guarantee quality of shavers

Sensors help guarantee quality of shavers Braun, a leading global manufacturer of small electrical appliances, including innovative shaving, hair care and beauty care products, is using optical laser sensors from Micro-Epsilon to help guarantee the quality of its new Gillette brand of cordless wet shavers. Because the product is very different from conventional Braun shaving appliances, the company's manufacturing process required completely new quality assurance procedures and systems. At the end of the production line, the assembled shaving appliances are passed to an inspection station and brought - in the switched on mode - into a special 'V' holder, which is positioned in the path of the laser beam from Micro-Epsilon's laser micrometer Optocontrol sensor. The laser sensor measures the shavers for vibration amplitude and vibration frequency across the handle of the shaver. The frequency is measured via the voltage output and a frequency counter. Micro-Epsilon's Optocontrol 2500-35 non-contact sensor is a laser-based measurement system that uses an integral, high resolution CCD camera for dimensional measurements. The sensor offers a high sampling rate (2.3kHz), combined with excellent repeatability (better than 3micron) and resolution (better than 1micron).
