Non-Contact Volume Gauging Solutions

LMI Technologies (LMI) releases the Gocator Volume Checker, a fast, accurate and reliable volume gauging solution ideal for inspecting cylinder heads and piston bowls in small to medium-sized internal combustion engines (ICEs). This unique and innovative approach replaces traditional volume gauging methods (i.e., fluids, pressurized air, and acoustics) with a fully automated, non-contact 3D solution.

Snapshot sensor

Gocator Volume Checker solves this application by combining the Gocator 3210 snapshot sensor (35 µm resolution) with custom built-in measurement tools to calculate the volume of engine cylinder heads and piston bowls.

Features and advantages

The solution uses blue LED structured light to take a single snapshot scan and deliver measurement results at ± 0.04cm3 accuracy. This measurement occurs in a cycle time of less than 5 seconds, even on combustion chambers and pistons with highly-reflective surfaces. Traditional contact-based methods can take up to 5 minutes. The Gocator 3210 snapshot sensor is IP67-rated and interfaces seamlessly to send pass/fail decisions to PLCs.
