Maybe it’s the summer season or perhaps the difficulty in finding manpower to fill positions – whatever the reason, more and more companies are turning to collaborative robots to move 3D scanners over the parts for quality inspection.
Semi conductor shortages, backordered components, jammed up canals, now more than ever your manufacturing facilities yield is extremely important. That is why we are seeing an uptick in inline quality inspection demand. The LMI Gocator 3D Scanner is the perfect tool to inspect your manufactured components before they become part of an assembly.
This powerful technology, often coupled with a UR robot, can increase your quality inspection to 100% of your components. No more sample testing and hoping the numbers work themselves out!
A common question often when first getting into a custom vision application is how accurate is the system? While LMI Gocators have incredible resolution and repeatability numbers, accuracy can be tricky to pin down. This is because accuracy is a function of the entire system, and as we know, there are many factors to account for in a custom system.
This does not change the fact that accuracy is important to know. It is good to test for accuracy after developing a system, as this allows you to tell if you are getting the most out of your 3D Camera’s capabilities. Accuracy can be tested using a deviation analysis. For this you will need a certified object of known dimension, a mechanical measurement device, and of course a 3D Camera.
