LMI Technologies (LMI), the global leader in 3D inline scanning and inspection, is proud to announce that its family of Gocator® Smart 3D Laser Line Profile Sensors has officially been certified for integration with Universal Robots.
Universal Robots (UR) is the market leader in collaborative robot arms (called cobots) targeting companies of all sizes. Their easy-to-use and cost-efficient UR3, UR5, UR10, UR 16, and UR e-series models are deployed in several thousand production environments around the world today—in key factory automation applications such as pick-and-place, quality inspection, and packaging and palletizing.
Previously, LMI Technologies’ UR certification applied to Gocator® 3D snapshot sensors, which use blue-LED stereo structured light technology to measure shape and orientation of parts for automating inspection, part movement, and guidance type applications.
Now, Gocator® Smart 3D Laser Line Profile Sensors have received their own certification for integration with UR cobots to deliver a smart 3D robot vision solution for applications such as measurement and inspection of elongated targets (e.g., cables, pipes, and conduits); applications that require larger fields of view not covered by Gocator® 3D snapshot sensors (such as large scale bin picking); and a wide range of vision guidance, flexible quality inspection, and smart pick-and-place applications.
