LMI Technologies Launches Industry-First Smart 3D Line Confocal Sensors

The Gocator® 5000 series adds powerful line confocal imaging (LCI) scanning and inspection technology to the Gocator® family of trusted laser and structured light 3D smart sensors. 

Gocator 5500 Series

May 17, 2022, Vancouver, BC – LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official release of its new Gocator® 5500 series of smart 3D line confocal sensors.  This major product release introduces the first line confocal sensor running Gocator® 's trusted, industry-leading 3D smart sensor platform, complete with next-generation on-sensor IIoT vision web-based software, onboard measurement tools, native I/O connectivity, and much more.

Gocator® 5500 sensors are unique among existing confocal technologies in that they feature a dual-axis design that delivers simultaneous generation of 3D topography, 3D tomography, and 2D intensity data. This allows Gocator® 5000 sensors to scan practically any material type – including multi-layered, transparent/translucent, curved edge, shiny, textured, mixed, and many more - with submicron precision and at a level of quality and speed that outperforms competing confocal technologies.

A quick look at Gocator 5500 sensor capabilities:

• Simultaneous generation of multiple profiles from multi-layer structures
• Generates 1792 data points per profile
• Fast scan rates (Over 16 KHZ with PC acceleration)
• High X resolution, sub-micron Z precision
• Handles wide variety of material types
• Dual-axis optical design provides higher signal quality
• Runs LMI's next-generation measurement inspection software

“The Gocator® 5500 Series introduces a powerful line confocal scanning approach for the inspection of challenging material structures such as multi-layer, transparent and curved edge, and now with next-generation on-sensor IIoT vision software and Gocator’s renowned smart features and capabilities. The result is an end-to-end, user-friendly surface evaluation solution that provides customers with unmatched performance leveraging the industry’s first smart LCI technology“, said Mark Radford, CEO, LMI Technologies.
