speed and precision
Measurement accuracy is critical to making correct pass/fail decisions and ensuring product quality and throughput.
POWERFUL BUILT-IN MEASUREMENT TOOLS
Gocator’s built-in tools provide a full suite of measurement capabilities to solve a wide range of inspection challenges.
Gocator’s profile tools detect and compare feature points or fit lines found within laser profile data. Measurement values are compared against minimum and maximum thresholds to yield accurate control decisions.
Panel (Gap & Flush) Tool
The panel tool automatically carries out gap and flush measurements. Gap measurement provides the distance between the edges of two surfaces, and flush measurement provides the flushness between the edges of two surfaces.
A strip is a section of a profile with a distinct step height. The Strip tool measures the width of a strip, and lets you add multiple measurements of the same type to take data and set decisions for multiple strips.
3D surface measurement involves measuring surface properties such as volume and height at a certain position. Gocator’s volumetric tools have the ability to operate on the entire surface or the full object or within a region of interest at a given position in relation to the object’s surface.
Countersunk Hole tool
The Countersunk Hole Tool automatically locates a countersunk circular opening on the object surface and provides measurements to evaluate its characteristics—including position (X, Y, and Z), outside radius, bevel angle
Surface Plane Tool
This tool fits a region of points to a surface and calculates plane angles X and Y and offset Z from an alignment target. Results of the Plane Angle X and Y measurements can be used to customize the tilt angle in the Hole, Opening, and Stud tools.
SMART MEASUREMENT FEATURES
Gocator’s part matching, part sectioning and anchoring features provide maximum control and flexibility in your 3D measurement and inspection process.
This feature allows you to inspect parts regardless of their orientation on the assembly line. Edge matching capability automatically performs part realignment before applying Gocator’s built-in measurement tools.
With Part Sectioning in Surface Mode you can extract a cross-section from a 3D model of a part and perform advanced measurements. Ideal for measuring cut lines, this feature allows you to add and position multiple sections on a part.
The Anchoring feature allows you to track the movement of parts within the field of view of the sensor and correct for variations in the height and position of parts. This feature allows you to solve applications with part and size variations.
3D + 2D Fusion
Gocator combines 3D with 2D technology for a more robust inspection system.
In Gocator, an 8-bit intensity value is output for each range value along the laser line or for structured light. This allows you to use one sensor to perform both 2D and 3D measurements.
Robust 2D Vision Libraries
HexSight geometric part location technology provides flexible and robust contour-based 2D pattern matching to locate parts and features regardless of their scale or orientation.
