LMI Technologies has a proven track record of supplying leading-edge, high-performance 3D scanning and inspection solutions for the many different types of stations in the automotive manufacturing process, including tooling, framing, assembly, and inspection. Inspection is a multi-step process. First, the target is digitized in 3D. Then it is measured to verify critical tolerances are met. Finally a control decision is ‘communicated’, either to a robot, PLC, or factory process control monitoring systems. What makes Gocator smart is that it has all of these capabilities onboard, which minimizes system cost and complexity and helps manufacturers reach their goals.

Gocator 3D snapshot sensor

Gocator 3D snapshot sensors use structured light (fringe projection) to deliver advanced 3D inspection of automotive parts, assemblies, and final fit and finish. These sensors are ideal for robotic vision guidance. A structured light scanner digitizes an entire area into a 3D point cloud by projecting several light patterns in a rapid sequence onto a stationary surface. These systems can be mounted onto robots for flexible inspection applications, or to inspect larger objects like automotive panels by taking multiple snapshots from several zones.
