Inspect An Electrical Connector for Submillimeter Dimensional Tolerances

In this scenario, you will work with a high-resolution (6.7 microns in XY) 3D snapshot scan of an electrical connector and apply several high-precision dimensional measurements.

3504-surface-mode---connector
Scanning Electrical Connector
Gocator 3504

Inspection Challenge
Need to inspect connector height, groove pattern, and angle with submillimeter accuracy to ensure 100% quality.

Solution
Apply Gocator® built-in Profile measurement tools.

Featured Tools/Measurements:

  • Profile Line tool to measure the surface angle of the connector
  • Profile Dimension tool to measure connector height
  • Profile Dimension tool to measure width of the entire connector, covering two pins
  • Profile Groove tool to measure grooves between individual connector pins

Scanning Grooves of Black Rubber Tire
Gocator 2440

Inspection Challenge
Need to inspect groove dimensions on tire tread. Low-contrast black rubber is impossible for 2D vision solutions to measure for shape information such as height.

Solution
Apply Gocator® built-in measurement tools to high-resolution 3D shape data, even on low contrast (black) targets.

Featured Tools/Measurements:

  • Profile Groove tool to measure tread for X and Y axis dimensional measurements

Steps to Sample Testing

Gocator® Emulator for Sample Testing

Now you can request an Emulator scenario of your own part for the purpose of sample testing. Once your request is approved, an LMI Field Application Engineer will work with you directly to organize and execute the shipping of your part and to define your exact measurement specifications.

Your final Emulator scenario will be delivered to you as a .GS file that you can download and run from your desktop, with no physical sensor or in-person appointments required. We will then schedule a video conference to walk you through the details of your scenario and answer any questions you might have.
