LMI Technologies (LMI), has announced the launch of the Gocator 2512 laser line profile sensor, a dedicated high-performance 3D machine vision solution for scanning glass and other specular surfaces. The company will be introducing the new sensor in booth at the upcoming Vision exhibition in Shanghai, March 20-22, 2019.
Gocator 2512 has the unique advantage of being able to scan specular and diffuse surfaces simultaneously. For example, the sensor can generate a precision 3D scan of a cell phone’s cover glass in a surrounding metal or plastic frame, inspecting critical assembly tolerances such as flushness, gap, and offset.
The sensor leverages specialized laser projection technology that can handle a wider range of surface angles, material types, and surface colors. Competing laser profilers use a collimated laser beam that does not offer the same target angle performance.
Gocator 2512 also delivers high speed, reliability, and superior data quality in GD&T measurement of component assemblies with various challenging surface finishes (e.g., transparent, anti-glare, coated/uncoated, low/high contrast, UV, and glossy).
“With the Gocator 2512, we now offer our customers a dedicated 3D sensor model specifically for glass and specular materials, with all of Gocator’s smart capabilities including onboard data processing and built-in measurement tools. The sensor’s unique optical design delivers exceptional performance in challenging specular scanning applications, in a more cost-effective package than competing technologies such as confocal scanners,” said Chi Ho Ng, Senior Director of Applications, LMI Technologies.
