Happy to help

The corona pandemic presents all of us with new challenges. We are there for you despite the crisis. Our employees either work from home or are at a distance in the laboratory, in development or in the office. All requirements according to the IfsG are of course observed.
We will continue to deliver on time and will also be happy to submit quotes.
We hope that you stay healthy and that we can all start again with all our strength when the pandemic recedes.

Adjusted with light

Camera-based alignment and measuring system ensures precise, quick measurement of straightness and flatness in mechanical engineering.

Straightness and alignment are essential, especially for large machine components and rail constructions, for trouble-free system operation. Even small deviations can lead to increased wear and paralyze a complete system. A precise alignment or measurement of e.g. Linear guides are therefore crucial for the quality and service life of a system in advance. With the ELWI-GER 3000, HOFBAUER OPTIK Mess- & Pr├╝ftechnik from Munich provides the right instrument for machine and special machine construction. The optical alignment and measuring system works precisely and quickly with the help of uEye industrial cameras and is also suitable for long measuring distances up to 100 m.

Focusable ELWIMAT-AKF Dyna-FOC Digital 200/65

A well-known automotive supplier was equipped with our new focusable ELWIMAT-AKF Dyna-FOC Digital 200/65.
In the AKF, this includes a focusable camera in our customized ELWIMAT-AKF 200/65 measuring head, as well as the latest software for evaluation.

10 x higher data rate (USB 2-> USB 3)
10 to 30 x faster readout time
5x further measuring distance (up to 100m) 

With the new ELWI-GER 3000 we are continuing the consistent development in precision measurement technology in mechanical engineering.

The new USB 3.0/3.1 technology increases the data transfer rate from 480 MBit/s to 5 GBit/s with the same or higher cable length (fiber optic technology available).

The measurement frequency in full screen mode is increased by a factor of 5 from 12 frames/second to 57 fps. 
For special applications in vibration and frequency analysis, the clock rates can be increased up to the KHz range using AOI technology (Area Of Interest) as well as subsampling and binning methods.

Thanks to Dr. Hofbauer's patented vignetting method, we are the only company in the world capable of overcoming the problems of the classic auto-collimation method and of measuring lengths of over 100 m with angular second accuracy even at extremely large angles (1000 seconds = 17 mm/m) and evaluating them using the tilt method. We achieve accuracies in straightness measurement of 0.5 micrometers per meter, i.e. 0.05 mm for 100 m measuring distance.
(For information: The earth's curvature at 100 m is the equivalent of 0.19 mm).
