The global spreading of the Corona virus COVID 19 leaves us facing challenges of an unexpected kind!

 

The well-being and safety of our employees at Status Pro GmbH (Ltd.) is of utmost priority. The result of our precautionary measures ensures continuity in delivering the highest standards of business and operational performance during these difficult times.

 

We are still 100% prepared and ready, either:

  • over the phone
  • through the Internet/vidcons etc.
  • on-site if necessary

All departments are still contactable, under implementation of the new safety regulations (partly in shift work and partly as home-office).

 

 

Sales:

We can still help you with training in spite of these difficult times.

  • In the Form of a Video-steam Conference or Demo:
    We can show you all our instruments and many applications including software through live streaming from our Training center.
     
  • In some cases we can also visit you at your premises:
    Sometimes there is no alternative performing test measurements on your machine.  Particularly if the is new for us or or the requirements are not typical.
    In such cases with some planning and with the correct protective equipment and procedures we can come to your facility.

Training:

Maybe this is a good opportunity to freshen up on training.

  • Per Video-conference:
    Either we do the measuring and stream to you or you do the measurement and stream the video to us. Just call us so that we can plan it.
     
  • Conventional training at your premises:
    With good planning we can still do conventional trading at your premises.
    We can insure that it is contact free and maintaining the appropriate distance.
    We have the necessary protective clothing.

Service work and surveying, on-site:

Utilise the time at hand to inspect and survey your machinery and ultimately bring it up to scratch for when the ball starts to roll again.
Our professional measurement and adjustment team are ready and prepared for an on-site visit. Observing the new safety regulations (distancing, hygiene, protective clothing etc.) , maintenance work can be carried out as safely as before.This could be an ideal time to have your machine geometry measured. Again with the appropriate planning and equipment we can still do the all the measurements as before. 

Please call us and we will see what we can arrange.

Interferometry

General Information on Interferometry

Laser Interferometers measure distance with extreme accuracy. 1nm is possible. 
This resolution and accuracy makes Laser Interferometers effectively the best way to measure distances accurately (< 0,1mm) in most machine engineering applications. 

Thanks to the extreme accuracy in distance measurements, together with one or two optical accessories Interferometers can also be used to measure other things apart from distance. For example: 

  • Straightness Measurement 
  • Combined straightness and displacement measurement
  • Straightness measurement via Auto collimation. 
  • Flatness via auto collimation. 
  • Vibration. 

The above listed tasks can be completed easier and quicker with other methods and instruments. However, when measuring distances the Interferometer is the absolute Nr 1.

 

µLine Laser

µLine, the precise Laser Interferometer for machine measurements


The precise alignment and calibration of machines is an important part of Quality Management. Especially in the tool machinery market precision down to a µm is required. The new µLine system is an easy to handle yet very precise system for the measurements of straightness and parallelism.

Not only does it provide extremenly precise length / distance measurement but also straightness measurements in X and Y. The first stage interferometer prism is kept out of the laser housing thus avoiding thermal influences and offering maximum flexibility in the setup.

This is often critical in production line applications because it minimizes the degree of machine disassembly required. Measuring points can be performed manually, "semi automatic or completely automatically. The software support is very comprehensive. Apart from Vibration measurement it also supports ISO and IEEE machine compensation procedures. You can even use it to generate G-Codes for machine control.

The precise alignment and calibration of machines is a important part of the Quality Management. Especially in the tool machinery market precision down to a µm is required. The new µLine system is an easy to handle yet very precise system for the measurements of straightness and parallelism.

µLine was developed for the industrial rather than the laboratory environment. It’s a two laser frequency interferometer with an integrated PSD for laser position detection. 


µLine has a very extensive “weather station”; environmental influences on the measurement are kept down to a minimum through comprehensive temperature and pressure compensation.

The µLine offers a variety of features which differ from our competitors. Have a look at the advantages.

µLine:

  • Wireless operation of the sensors (no tangling cables )
  • PC Connection over bluetooth
  • Measurement of straightness is possible with the basic set! (3D measurement)
  • Two frequency "Zeemen" laser
  • Automatic generation of G-Codes and compensation tables!
  • Easy electronic beam alignment!
  • Easy to learn software
  • Small and lightweight system complete with case
