Canon's new ultra sonic piezo motor is compact, quiet, and accurate for linear positioning applications.

Best for use in medical and industrial applications, the KP-1 series from Canon features High Resolution Digital Galvano Scanners.

The GM-1000 series of digital encoder galvano scanners is comprised of four different models with variations in beam diameter, scan angles, small step response, and resolution. Each model has a compact physical profile, super low thermal drift, and extreme high resolution, precision, and accuracy.

The SR series of miniature optical encoders has been designed to fit into motion control devices with limited space, such as robotic arms for surgery, nanopositioning stages, microscopes, and other medical devices.

Canon USA has developed laser rotary encoders that can provide 81,000 pulses with a 36-mm diameter by using the light-diffraction interference method in conjunction with a semiconductor laser acting as the light-emitting element.

  • The Machine Vision RV-Series from Canon is made up of a group of systems that are specifically designed to work as the “eyes” of robotic arm systems. Benefits for using these machine vision systems include one-time measurements of 3D pose, high-speed recognition, improved productivity, and reduced production costs. This series is ideal for use in industrial production applications such as automobile parts manufacturing, car manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing.

  • Sukegawa Takashi from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components introduces the new Canon Immersion Grating. With a size that is 1/27th of typical spectroscopy devices and the ability to cover infrared frequencies from 1 to 20 micrometers, this immersion grating is ideal for astronomy, satellites, and large ground-based telescope applications.

  • The new RA-532H Surface Reflectance Analyzer from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components is capable of surface measurements at three different angles (20°, 60°, and 85°). Utilized measurement methods include standard compliant gloss, haze, Image Clarity (IC), and 1-D and 2-D BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function) measurements. The analyzer can be used for a variety of evaluation and inspection applications with many types of surfaces such as film, paper, and automotive, printed, or painted surfaces.

  • We were fortunate enough to meet with Taiki Iida at Canon to hear about two brand new releases.

  • Ron Travis with Canon gives us an overview of what they were displaying at the show, most notably their optical rotary and linear encoders, their laser Doppler velocity sensors, and their digital Galvano laser scanners for laser drilling, laser welding, laser etching, and rapid prototyping applications.

  • Ronald Travis, sales manager with Canon USA, introduces us to his company’s line of miniature optical encoders, galvano scanners, laser Doppler velocity sensors, and rotary encoders at Photonics West 2013.

  • Ron Travis, sales manager at Canon U.S.A., tells us about their SR Series of ultra-miniature optical encoders, laser rotary encoders, laser doppler velocity sensors, and galvano scanners. These products are used in a wide variety of applications such as motion and speed control, robotics, manufacturing equipment, and more.

  • This video contains information on Canon’s Laser Rotary Encoders, or rotation angle sensors, and describes their benefit over conventional rotary encoders.
