LMI Technologies unveils next-gen Gocator
LMI Technologies has launched the Gocator firmware 5.0 and released a new hardware version of its Gocator 2100/2300 line profilers, offering over 2x the sensitivity of previous generations. The new Gocator 5.0 delivers a scalable, responsive, high-definition 3D data visualizer that can handle millions of 3D data points efficiently across all devices including mobile. LMI is the leading 3D scanning and inspection solutions developer in the World.
“Our latest firmware release addresses a number of important customers needs while continuing to advance Gocator’s overall smart sensor design and usability. Gocator 5.0 demonstrates that massive 3D point clouds can be easily manipulated within today’s browsers. Gocator remains the leading 3D sensor product operating out of the box with only a web browser required to setup and deploy,” said Chi Ho Ng, Director of Applications.
The new version supports multi-sensor ring layouts which allow users to acquire an unprocessed 3D point cloud of the entire circumference of a scan target without losing any data points. Based on mechanical alignment, Gocator firmware 5.0 delivers superior results that do not rely on geometry to achieve high repeatability. Other features include a new scan mode for snapshot sensors that deliver exceptional results for curved, shiny targets; multi-tool reordering and a Plane Geometric feature for high-repeatability point-to- plane measurements.
The improvements in LMI’s Class 2M and Class 3R sensors offer over 2x the sensitivity of previous generations and effectively lower laser classifications. This allows customers to scan darker targets at higher speeds without the safety considerations of class 3B lasers.
