VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 25, 2021 — LMI Technologies has been officially certified for integration with Universal Robots (UR). The certification applies to LMI Technologies’ Gocator 3D snapshot sensors, which use stereo structured light technology to measure shape and orientation of parts for automating inspection, part movement, and guidance type applications. The sensors are easily integrated into applications using UR devices with support provided by the Gocator URCap plugin, which eliminates the need for additional programming for setup.

UR markets robot arms called cobots. The company’s UR3, UR5, UR10, and UR e-series models are deployed in several thousand production environments around the world today — in factory automation applications such as pick-and-place, quality inspection, packaging, and palletizing. Users can integrate Gocator 3D snapshot sensors into applications using UR devices with support provided by the Gocator URCap plugin. The plugin allows engineers to connect to a robot controller or PC application to perform sensor hand-eye calibration and implement pick-and-place movement.

"Connecting 3D machine vision with robots is a natural fit that enables robots to do so much more by responding to dynamic changes in the environment. We are excited about the many benefits this combination of 3D sensing and robotic technology can provide to customers in their pick-and-place and quality inspection applications,” Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies, said.
