LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official release of its new Gocator® 5500 series of smart 3D line confocal sensors. This major product release introduces the first line confocal sensor running Gocator®'s trusted smart sensor platform, complete with next-generation on-sensor IIoT vision web-based software, onboard measurement tools, I/O connectivity, and much more.

Gocator® 5500 sensors are unique among existing confocal technologies in that they feature a dual-axis design that delivers simultaneous generation of 3D topography, 3D tomography, and 2D intensity data. This allows Gocator® 5000 sensors to scan practically any material type––including multi-layered, transparent/translucent, curved edge, shiny, textured, mixed, and many more––with submicron precision, and at a level of quality and speed that outperforms competing confocal technologies.

A quick look at Gocator 5500 sensor capabilities:

● Simultaneous generation of multiple profiles from multi-layer structures
● Generates 1792 data points per profile
● Fast scan rates (Over 10 kHz with PC acceleration)
● High X resolution, sub-micron Z precision
● Handles wide variety of material types
● Dual-axis optical design provides higher signal quality
● Runs next-generation onboard measurement and inspection software

“The Gocator® 5500 Series introduces a powerfully effective line confocal scanning approach for the inspection of challenging material structures such as multi-layer, transparent and curved edge, and now with next-generation on-sensor IIoT vision software and Gocator’s renowned smart features and capabilities. The result is an end-to-end, user-friendly surface evaluation solution that provides customers with unmatched performance leveraging the industry’s first smart LCI technology“, said Mark Radford, CEO, LMI Technologies.
