 SENSOR HEAD 

Robust and slim body contributes to a longer service life Plain bearings with 2-point support structure Metal guide whirl-stop structure Air-Driven Type Durability to withstand more than 200 million vertical sliding operations No “value skipping” or “unset zero point Class-top accuracy Tip deviation amount of 35 μm 1.378 mil or less (typical value) Resistance to lateral load
Note 1 : Value on the HG-S1010 / HG-S1110.
Note 2 : Value on the HG-S1010(R) / HG-S1110(R).
Note 3 : Value calculated from the clearance of the upper and lower plain bearings.

Plain bearings with 2-point support structure

A new structure supports the spindle with upper and lower plain bearings to significantly increase rigidity. Unlike ball bearings, these bearings efficiently disperse lateral loads on the spindle, significantly reducing the risk of breakage.

Metal guide whirl-stop structure

Metal guide whirl-stop structure

Spindle whirl-stop is accomplished by means of a metal guide requiring a several μm level assembly precision.
Unlike a plastic guide, the risk of measurement error and glass scale breakage caused by deformation, wear, and other deterioration is significantly reduced.

Durability to withstand more than 200 million vertical sliding operations (typical value)(Note)

Tested for vertical sliding durability by sliding the spindle up and down
Note : Value on the HG-S1010 / HG-S1110.

No "value skipping" or "unset zero point"

Displacement is measured by reading a glass scale with a different slit pattern at each reading position using a high-resolution sensor. This eliminates "value skipping" even when measuring at high speed, and there is no concern of "unset zero point".

Class-top accuracy

Class-top accuracy
* As of June 2017, in-company survey.

Tip deviation amount of 35 μm 1.378 mil or less (typical value)(Note)

Tip deviation that reduces measurement precision is also minimized. Deviation of the measurement point is held to a minimum.
* 40 μm 1.574 mil or less (typical value) on the HG-S1032 / HG-S1050 (Note)
Note : Value calculated from the clearance of the upper and lower plain bearings.

Air-Driven Type NEW

 Air-driven type sensor heads simplify equipment mechanisms. 

Air-driven type sensor heads simplify equipment mechanisms.

Advantages

  • Eliminates the cost and manhours for designing a mechanism to move the sensor head and improves accuracy of the equipment.
  • Reduces installation spaces

 Supply and release of air moves the spindle up and down. 
Eliminates the need for designing and installing a mechanism to move the sensor head up and down.

Supply and release of air moves the spindle up and down.

 Low measuring force capability 
Removal of the seal cap from the main unit allows measurement with low measuring force.
The low probe contact force minimizes the possibility of workpiece damage.

Low measuring force capability

 Resistance to lateral load 

Lateral loads often occur in the workplace, so we conduct our own unique lateral load resistance testing.
There is a reason why you can use this product with peace of mind for a long time.

Withstands more than 100 million sliding operations under application of lateral load (Typical value)(Note 1)

 Example of a lateral load occurring in the workplace 

Hitting the spindle laterally with a roller We conducted our own unique lateral load resistance testing
Test conditions
Impact cycle: 13 times per second
Impact stroke: 1 mm

Note :

1) Value on the HG-S1010 / HG-S1110.
2) Button-type probe for evaluation purposes was installed on the test sample for the lateral load resistance test.

Air-Driven Type

Number of lateral sliding cycles: 10,000,000 or more (typical value) (under continuous testing)
The robust sensor head helps reduce damage caused by workpiece setup mistakes.

Vibration / shock resistance No. 1* in class

* As of June 2017, in-company survey.

 Resistant to upward thrust impact 

Spindle stopper installed at the lower section

Even if unexpected upward thrust occurs, the lower part of the spindle blocks the impact. Damage to the internal structure, including the glass scale, is minimized.

Resistant to upward thrust impact
 Hot-swappable 

Change of sensor head without turning off the power supply

The sensor head can be changed safely without turning off the controller. This reduces the man-hours required for the change of line setup for processing of different workpieces, thus achieving a significant reduction of setup change time.

Hot-swappable
 Controller 

Versatile and Easy-to-Use Controller

The controller features the industry's first* dual display and offers versatile functions and excellent ease of use. It allows simple and reliable operation of the advanced measurement function in a diversity of applications.

* As a sensor product using optical absolute method, as of September 2015 (according to in-company survey)

Dual display for added indication flexibility (equipped with NAVI function)

The 2-line digital display simultaneously shows head measurement (measured value) and judgment value (calculated value).

All-direction LCD

The high-contrast LCD provides sharp and clear indications and wide viewing angle.

Equipped with intuitive circle meter

Values between allowable maximum and minimum values are indicated in green. Values outside of the allowable range are indicated in orange. This provides at-a-glance understanding of the margin to the tolerance limits.

Equipped with intuitive circle meter

Anytime selection of function to copy

The selective copy function significantly reduces the man-hours required for initial setting and maintenance.

Anytime selection of function to copy

High-speed response of 3 ms in combination with any sensor head



Provided with maintenance mode useful on production floor

The following data are stored and can be used for analysis on the spot.

  • Abnormal sensor head upward thrust value
  • Number of sensor head upward thrusts
  • Cumulative total number of sliding operations

Alarm setting for notification of upward thrust

Alarm can be set to notify an upward thrust (stroke) that exceeds the set level. This allows you to conduct a preventive maintenance before the sensor head generates a malfunction.

 Easy-to-understand 2-line digital display 

The 2-line digital display simultaneously shows sensor head measurement and judgment value.
