Gocator 3109 3D Smart Snapshot Sensor

LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official launch of the Gocator 3109 3D Smart Snapshot Sensor.

Gocator 3109 is the latest addition to the Gocator 3100 series of compact, pre-calibrated, blue LED, stereo snapshot sensors manufactured by LMI; delivering high-precision 3D point-cloud acquisition, measurement, and control decision capabilities in a single device.

Gocator 3109 is designed for industrial assembly line builders who need to perform full in-line inspection, where sensors mounted on fixed frames or robots are used for quality control on a stationary target. The 3109’s all-in-one functionality minimizes the number of components required in these types of multi-feature inspection systems, significantly reducing system and maintenance costs.

The most notable feature of the Gocator 3109 is that it has the smallest footprint of any blue LED projection scanner on the market. The Gocator 3109 measures just 49 x 100 x 155 mm — almost half the size of the Gocator 3110 model — and weighs less than 1.5 kg. This ultra compact design and lightweight package make the 3109 easy to mount onto robotic arms, fit single or multiple sensors into confined spaces (e.g. for measuring engine cylinders), and integrate or embed into machines and other factory devices. With synchronized multiple Gocator 3109s, system integrators can build 3D inspection systems for large parts at a fraction of the cost of sourcing a large format 3D scanner with similar resolution.

“LMI saw a market need for an inspection system that could take measurements of multiple features in just one scan, and with a higher degree of operational simplicity than standard industry solutions. From listening to customer feedback, we developed the Gocator 3109 with the ability to acquire high-resolution, full-field scans quickly in order to inspect multiple features of parts with complete 3D visualization and execute accurate pass/fail control decisions”, said Chi Ho Ng, Director Product Management at LMI Technologies.
