Gocator has a flexible smart sensor platform that supports model customization at the manufacturing level. This approach allows users to configure standard sensors to serve application-specific requirements for a particular industry.
SPS IPC Drives sets out to be Europe’s leading exhibition of cutting-edge automation technologies. The Nuremberg show will enable colleagues to link up with each other and to learn about the interconnected production environments of the future.
3D Smart Sensors: Advantages of High Speed, High-Sensitivity Rubber and Tyre Inspection
Automated quality control in the rubber and tyre (R&T) industry requires a 3D machine vision solution with specialised features and capabilities. This is because R&T applications involve scanning low-contrast, dark materials with complex geometry at very high speed––something that can only be achieved using robust 3D sensor technology.
Learn about Gocator Volume Checker, LMI's new non-contact solution for volume gauging of cylinder heads and piston bowls in small to medium-sized internal combustion engines (ICEs). This fully automated, structured light solution replaces traditional volume gauging methods such as fluids, pressurized air, and acoustics.
Read this short case study in Quality Magazine on LMI's innovative non-contact volume gauging solution. Gocator Volume Checker replaces traditional contact-based methods such as litering and acoustics, producing fast and accurate volume measurement of cylinder heads and piston bowls in small to medium-sized internal combustion engines (ICEs).
Reflective surfaces pose a challenge for accurate 3D scanning. When multiple reflections occur on the surface of a target, it produces noise in the acquired data that negatively impacts measurement results.
Many scanning applications require shape data for 360º of a part, while others only need one view that captures a specific feature of a part. For 360º support, a multi-sensor ring layout is an ideal solution.
The “Rule of Ten”* (or “one to ten”) is that the resolution of the measuring instrument should be ten times as precise as the tolerance to be measured. For example, if the tolerance is 0.1 mm, then the total of GR&R for the measurement system should be 0.01 mm or better.
In any industrial inline process, variation in the measurement system can cause problems such as rejected or defective products. One statistical tool that is used to test the variation of a measurement system and its ability to control the production process is called a Gauge Repeatability and Reproducibility (GR&R) study.
