AICON 3D Systems GmbH is one of the world's leading providers of optical camera-based 3D measurement systems. With WheelWatch, the company provides a simple solution to high-precision 6D acquisition of wheel motions. The centrepiece of this system is the EoSens® high-speed camera from Mikrotron.
Machinery and Plant Engineering
BERNINA AG has been developing high-quality sewing machines for over 100 years. The MotionBLITZ EoSens® mini2 by Mikrotron means their engineers are able to make new technologies visible and monitor them. This has allowed them to make a variety of recordings of complex processes from thread movement to the time management of motion sequences.
Studying the swimming behavior of copepods generates many challenges. To meet these challenges, the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group at ETH Zurich uses the 3D-PTV technique. Equipped with four Mikrotron EoSens® CL cameras, the system combines high recording durations, high light sensitivity and high-speed recording.
The Swedish Solar Telescope can see at a resolution of up to 0.1 arc-seconds. This corresponds to 70 km on the solar surface, meaning it can see details the size of a 10 cent euro coin at a distance of about 40 km. This was achieved by use of an adaptive optics system. The system relies on the EoSens® CL by Mikrotron for high-speed imaging.
Insects are capable of flying and navigating over tens of kilometers through complex natural environments. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden aim to understand how they use visual information and antennal mechanosensors to control flight. Their flight facilities are equipped with Mikrotron high-speed cameras.
Robotics and Automation
3D-Shape GmbH performs complex surface measurements using the principle of white light interferometry, advanced sensors, 3D image processing and powerful camera technology from Mikrotron GmbH.
Sports and Movement
What is decisive for the throwing range of a ball? How can bad posture be avoided? What shoes facilitate the gentlest running technique? When visualizing and analyzing human motor activities, the high-speed cameras by Mikrotron can also play a crucial role in a variety of applications.
Among insiders, Dietmar Erhardt is considered Germany's best when it comes to golf clubs. His company Classic Club Repair has been equipping golfers with custom-made golf clubs for more than 20 years. Over time, the MotionBLITZ EoSens® mini1 has become part of his standard kit. It provides key insights into the motions performed by golfers during a swing.
