Simplifying automated non-contact inspection across many industry applications.

Gocator is an all-in-one 3D smart sensor solution that simplifies the inspection process by performing measurement and control decisions all within a single device.

What makes these 3D sensors stand out from the crowd? Everything you need is built inside a single device. Unlike other 3D scanning solutions that use external controllers and third party software, Gocator performs scan, measurement and control functions within the sensor itself. This signature all-in-one functionality makes Gocator capable of exceptional performance across a wide variety of non-contact, in-line inspection applications. Plus, each Gocator sensor comes factory pre-calibrated to deliver 3D scanning and 3D inspection results out-of-the-box.

Gocator’s advanced 3D measurement technology quickly measures critical object dimensions and automatically executes pass/fail controls. Its built-in data processing engine delivers scores of accurate data in real-time. Gocator is easy to set up and run, communicates to factory floor equipment from any web browser and seamlessly interfaces with a variety of existing control systems including PLCs using Ethernet, digital, analog, and/or serial output.

Gocator makes 3D inspection and 3D scanning easy. Start thinking Gocator today.

Gocator Firmware and HexSight

Every Gocator 3D Smart Sensor comes with a built-in web-based browser user interface and powerful measurement tools for maximum precision and productivity in the 3D inspection process.

100% Scalable

With LMI Master controllers you can easily expand from a single 3D sensor to dual 3D sensor and multi-sensor systems of up to 24 seamlessly interconnected Gocators, increasing your total field-of-view and achieving greater scan coverage without ever compromsing the quality of your scan results. Plus, sensor synchronization is automatic and easy to manage.

Customize Your Gocator 3D Smart Sensor With Open Source SDK

We believe in empowering our customers. The SDK (software development kit) provides you with complete control and management of Gocator 3D Smart Sensor to fit your specific needs. Use the Gocator SDK to create network TCP/IP connections, stream data into circular buffers, parse XML settings, and manage multiple threads. With all of the C-based code provided, you can decide exactly how Gocator acquires and processes data on any computer or mobile device you want.

Serie 1000 “Displacement Sensor”

Displacement Sensors for Inline Inspection.

Gocator displacement sensors are non-contact laser distance measurement devices that are ideal for determining 3D thickness, height, and surface roughness. The sensors operate at speeds up to 32,000 Hz and ideal for closed loop control or inline inspection of manufactured parts. These sensors are available in various pre-calibrated models for different measuring ranges and resolutions and include built-in support for encoders and multi-sensor synchronization to support demanding inspection needs.

Features

Ideal for real-time closed-loop automation, Gocator displacement sensors operate at exceptionally high speeds. They are ideal for in-line inspection, non-contact dimensional measurements, such as height and thickness, or surface roughness. Important features include:

  • Pre-calibrated and ready to measure.

  • Scalable to a synchronized multiple sensor network.

  • Small footprint.

  • Set-up and control via a web browser.

  • Rich I/O and PLC support.

  • Open source SDK.

Serie 2000 “Profile Sensor”

Laser Line Profile Sensors.

Rapidly create cross-sectional profiles for measuring features of an object’s surface. And by moving an object under the laser line, you can create many profiles that can be combined into a full 3D shape for volumetric analysis.

Gocator Profile Sensors are laser line measurement devices that measure cross-sectional shapes of parts and materials surfaces. Cross-sections can be collected to create 3D point clouds representing whole parts for performing volumetric measurements. The same sensor can also generate highly detailed laser intensity images for use with common 2D image processing software. With scan rates of up to 5000 Hz and measurement ranges up to 800 mm (2.63 ft), Gocator profile sensors offer the flexibility for easy integration into production facilities for inspection and control.

Serie 3000 “Snapshot Sensor”

Structured-Light Snapshot Sensors.

The industry’s first all-in-one smart snapshot sensor simplifies assembly feature inspection with powerful 3D visualization, built-in measurement tools, and real-time control decision capabilities so you can focus on quality results.

Gocator 3D smart snapshot sensors combine 3D point cloud data acquisition, 3D measurement tools, and control decision capabilities in a single package for powerful assembly feature inspection. Gocator 3D snapshot sensors scan and inspect multiple features of parts such as fasteners, holes, slots, studs, and panel gap and flush in just one scan at a higher level of simplicity than standard industry solutions. This powerful 3D scanning and 3D inspection solution provides assurance that consistent product quality levels are met during final product assembly, and is ideal for robotic or stationary inspection stations.
