LMI Technologies Launches 2 Meter Field of View Gocator® 2490 Laser Profiler for 3D Measurement and Inspection of Large Scan Targets
LMI Technologies Inc. Posted 02/11/2020
New 3D laser line profiler features ultra-wide field of view, large measurement range, expansive scan area, and high XYZ resolutions for complete dimensional gauging and robust 2D/3D inspection
Vancouver, BC – LMI Technologies (LMI), the global leader in 3D scanning and inspection, is pleased to announce the official launch of the Gocator 2490 smart 3D laser line profiler. This sensor achieves a 2 m field of view, large measurement range, and a 1 m X 1 m scan area for measurement and inspection of large targets in packaging & logistics and other applications where wide coverage is required. Gocator 2490 provides engineers with an all-in-one, pre-calibrated 3D vision solution ready to scan and measure out of the box.
High-Resolution 3D Scanning at Production Speed
In packaging and logistics applications, Gocator 2490 is able to scan 1 m X 1 m packages at 800 Hz, with resolutions of 2.5 mm in all three dimensions (X, Y, Z)––even at conveyor speeds of 2 m/s. Competing systems typically offer just 3-5 mm resolution and are therefore less accurate in volume measurement. The sensor is also used for robust surface inspection and pass/fail control of defects such as packaging dents, tears, punctures, and folds.
Ultra-Wide Field of View and Large Measurement Range
Gocator 2490’s combination of wide field of view and large measurement range allows engineers to cover a very large scan area with a single sensor, and is suitable for applications such as volume dimensioning of packages in warehouse automation, automotive body frame inspection, monitoring loading levels on wide conveyor belt systems, sawmill board optimization, and high-volume food processing inspection.
“Gocator 2490 offers a unique, wide field of view, all-in-one sensor solution for cost sensitive applications that require volume and defect measurement. Fully loaded with Gocator software inside the sensor, the G2490 can build detailed surface information of large objects and apply measurement tools in real-time to drive factory automation everywhere.” said Terry Arden, CEO, LMI Technologies.
