LMI Technologies has launched three products for 3D scanning and inspection: Gocator 2500, Gocator 3504 and GoMax. In particular, Gocator series has achieved the Universal Robots Certification.
Gocator 2500 has a dedicated FPGA processing, advanced optics, and a high speed 2.4 MP custom camera, and it is ideal for scanning and inspection of fast-moving parts in a compact, all-in-one industrial package at rates up to 10 kHz. Users can leverage onboard processing for 3D surface generation, 6DOF alignment, part segmentation, and built-in 3D measurement tools for feature extraction and decision making to build a full inspection solution.
Gocator 3504 is a stereo snapshot sensor, which offers point-and-shoot 3D in a compact, industrial form factor that delivers high resolution. It leverages a number of technology advancements in order to achieve a high level of performance achieving 6.7 micron XY resolution with a Z repeatability of 0.2 microns, at an industry leading speed of 6 Hz (with acceleration).
GoMax uses a breed of computing based on the NVIDIA TX2 Jetson module. Adding GoMax to a single or multi-Gocator sensor network may improve overall scan and inspect cycle times. Inside GoMax is a preloaded Linux OS with the Gocator Accelerator (GoX) runtime offering 3D point cloud generation and measurement tool processing optimized for execution on the 256 CUDA cores. GoMax offers a small form factor and a low power usage of only 15 watts.
