Precision 3D scanning of shiny materials


3D scanning and inspection solutions developer, LMI Technologies (LMI), has announced the release of the Gocator 2430/2440/2450 blue laser line profile sensors.

The latest addition to LMI’s 2400 series, the new blue laser models are designed for 3D scanning of shiny metal surfaces in electric vehicle (EV) battery inspection, rail inspection (rail geometry), small to medium-size electronic and automotive parts, and general factory automation applications. The 2400 series also offers several red laser models for optimal performance and maximum flexibility in scanning applications.

Due to its shorter wavelength, blue laser light performs better than red or green lasers when scanning specular surfaces. A blue laser generates cleaner profiles (i.e., less laser speckle) on shiny targets, allowing it to achieve higher measurement accuracy as a result. For example, Gocator 2450 blue laser sensors can deliver high-quality 3D scan data of train rails even in full sunlight and when the track ballast is wet.

The Gocator 2430/40/50 models feature the latest 2-megapixel imaging technology, custom embedded processor, and optimised optics that allow for fast inspection rates (up to 5kHz) and increased sensitivity in handling reflective targets.

The laser profilers come in an IP67-rated industrial housing offering all-in-one functionality, including web-based user setup, built-in 3D visualisation, drag and drop measurement tools and communication protocols that are said to be unmatched in the 3D sensor market.
