Gocator® (LMI Technologies)

Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, LMI Technologies is one of the world’s top providers of 3D scanning and inspection solutions.
The Gocator series of 3D sensors couples high performance and ease of use with solid cost performance. With this all-in-one 3D smart sensor alone, customers can perform pass/fail judgement using 3D dimension measurement and image processing.
With its built-in Web server, the Gocator can be connected to a PC via LAN cable, enabling all settings and programming, including programming of image processing, to be performed online.
Controller features are also built into the Gocator. These features enable results of dimension measurement and pass/fail judgement to be output directly from the Gocator to plant equipment, without the provision of special equipment.
Also, using megapixel resolution and high-luminance laser output, the Gocator can be applied to objects with low reflectivity and that require a wide field of view, such as tires and lumber.
