Vancouver, Canada -- LMI Technologies has designed a high-speed laser line sensor, which it claims can measure a wide surface area. The unit has a single gigabit ethernet connection for high speed data transfer, and is claimed to reduce integration costs.
The EyeCon 2000 line sensor is designed for measuring matt surfaces and shiny black materials, such as rubber, as well as for measuring thickness, width and profiling component preparation stock material, said LMI.
â€œBy covering a wider field of view and getting more data over a single gigabit ethernet connection, the user can locate defects to reduce false rejects and waste,â€ said Martin Sanden, LMI's market manager for Europe and Asia, in a 28 Feb statement.
According to LMI the laser can provide a profile rate of 4000 samples per second, without any sacrifice to quality and control.
The system also allows companies to upload their own custom bulge and dent detection algorithms, reduces integration costs and eliminates the need for external computer power.
