LMI Technologies (LMI) has announced the launch of the Gocator 2530 smart 3D laser line profiler. The sensor achieves inspection speeds up to 10 kHz, at high lateral resolution with a field of view up to 100 mm.
A custom 2 MP high speed imager, advanced optical design, and blue laser light allow the Gocator 2530 to generate high quality 3D data with highly repeatable results on shiny metal or black materials common in battery, rubber & tire, and consumer electronics inspection and factory automation applications.
High-Speed 3D Scanning and Inspection
The new sensor allows users to take advantage of higher speeds by enabling multiple exposures to measure specular and low contrast surfaces simultaneously (e.g., shiny metal of battery cells, cell phone midplates, rubber). The sensor’s speed is also a key advantage in achieving high Y resolution (spacing in direction of travel). Submillimeter X and Z resolutions deliver detailed inspection of small assembly features such as edges or gaps and accurate 3D height measurement of surface geometry and defects (such as scratches and pits).
Wide Field of View and Large Measurement Range
The 2530’s wider field of view allows engineers to scan complete targets with a single sensor (e.g., cell phone midplate). Large field of view and measurement range allow the sensor to handle a wider variety of scan targets.
Easy to Integrate into Tight Spaces and Existing Systems
The Gocator 2530 has one of the smallest footprints in the industry while maintaining an IP67 rating. This allows the sensor to be mounted in virtually any machine environment. “The Gocator 2530 builds on the success of our high speed blue laser 2500 series, now providing customers with a wider field of view option and allowing for even more cost-efficient implementation of 3D inspection systems in battery, CE, and RUTI applications,” said Terry Arden, CEO, LMI Technologies.
Targeted applications include:
- Surface inspection of battery electrodes, cells, and packs
- Dimensional gauging of battery cells
- Cell phone midplate inspection
- Tire sidewall and inner wall inspection
