Cognex, a supplier of machine vision systems, has released the DS1000 3D laser profiling system.

The system calibrates real-world units of measurement for inspections too difficult to perform with traditional two-dimensional machine vision.

The DS1000 3D sensor reads embossed or raised characters such as those on automobile tires; verifies the presence of low-contrast items in boxes or packages; identifies surface defects and chips with low or no contrast; measures heights and tilts of components to determine misalignment; and calculates volumes and dimensions for food portioning.

The system is integrated with VisionPro software, a robust 3D vision toolset. With VisionPro, users can also add GigE cameras for 2D inspection tasks.
