3D smart imaging on show at Autosport International 2014

18 Dec 2013

STEMMER IMAGING will be showing 3D smart cameras from the LMI Gocator range at Autosport International. These are self-contained imaging systems that provide the ability to make a wide range of 3D measurements as well as control decisions (sorting, pass/fail, alerts) within a single device. Gocator can eliminate the significant cost and error of manual inspection and dramatically improve product quality in various phases of automotive production.

Stand 2007C, Autosport International, NEC, Birmingham, UK, 09-12 January, 2014

The Gocator range includes displacements sensors, profile sensors and snapshot sensors. They all feature an integrated laser or LED light source and optics and provide on-board processing of 3D data without the need for an external PC, allowing the direct output of the measured results. Everything needed for setup, measurement and control is contained in a single, web-enabled pre- calibrated package.

3D displacement sensors

The Gocator 1100 and 1300 Series of 3D displacement sensors are ideal for automating non-contact distance measurement processes and real-time closed loop control. They provide high speed, non-contact dimensional measurements such as distance, height, thickness, or surface roughness.

Profile sensors

Gocator 2000 and 2300 Series profile sensors measure cross-sectional shapes of parts and materials surfaces. Moving an object under the laser line allows cross-sections to be collected to create 3D point clouds representing whole parts for performing volumetric measurements.

Snapshot sensors

The latest Gocator 3100 series of snapshot sensors are ideal for a wide variety of non-contact, in-line inspection applications where objects must remain stationary. It can be used for dimensional measurement of many features such as holes, slots, studs and gap & flush.

LMI

Delta, Canada

LMI Technologies is changing the 3D measurement experience in factory automation. By developing all-in-one 3D smart sensors that are easy to use yet flexible, this technology is making part inspection and 100 % quality control simpler to accomplish around the world.

STEMMER IMAGING
