VANCOUVER, Canada, April 7, 2016 — LMI Technologies has announced Gocator Profile Sensors, laser line measurement devices that measure cross-sectional shapes of parts and materials surfaces. Cross sections can be collected to create 3D point clouds representing whole parts for performing volumetric measurements. The same sensor can also generate highly detailed laser intensity images for use with common 2D image processing software. Built-in measurement tools convert 3D data into real-time measurements with pass/fail decisions. Results are visualized instantaneously for fine-tuning measurements, inspecting and refining tolerances. With scan rates of up to 5000 Hz and measurement ranges up to 800 mm, Gocator profile sensors offer flexibility for integration into production facilities for inspection and control.
