FalconEye optical sensor

Share this on social media:

Carl Zeiss has released the FalconEye optical sensor, which can be used on stepping, articulating probe holders and is therefore ideal for complex measuring tasks in the automotive industry. This fulfils the increasingly high demands on precision and speed in quality inspection and car body construction.

In addition to countless boreholes, car manufacturing also requires the measurement of edges such as sections, transitions, threaded bolts and finished vehicles with accessories. For new vehicles, parts must be analysed quickly and accurately. The requirements are very high and inspections are extremely time consuming, particularly for serial inspection. The EagleEye navigator was developed for this and Zeiss’ FalconEye optical sensor system expands on this technology. The new sensor system is used in combination with the Zeiss Carmet II horizontal-arm measuring machine.

The FalconEye system has also been integrated into the Caligo software package from Zeiss.
