LMI Technologies Adds 3D Mesh and 2D/3D Pattern Matching to Gocator 6.1 Software

LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official launch of Gocator® 6.1 software. This release includes the groundbreaking addition of high accuracy 6DoF alignment and 3D mesh data generation for advanced shape measurement on 360º surface scans (using multi-sensor systems); a new 2D contour-based part and feature locator with Surface Pattern Matching; a GoHMI SDK toolkit for developing Gocator®-to-factory operator interfaces; and a number of other smart 3D technology capabilities that drive improved automated quality inspection in the context of IIoT and industry 4.0.

Here are just a few of the exciting capabilities in Gocator 6.1:

Support for 360º mesh data generation

Now users can transform multiple 3D point clouds into “meshed” surface data for use in high-precision shape measurement and inspection. Mesh data consists of interconnected data points that form a continuous, 360º surface representing the object’s complete geometry that leverages high accuracy 6DoF alignment for wide and ring type multi-sensor layouts. Users can then apply any of Gocator’s built-in Surface tools to perform advanced measurements on the meshed surface (e.g., measuring features on the sides of objects).

Introducing 360° Mesh Data Generation

New part and feature locator for 2D intensity and 3D heightmap surfaces

The new Surface Pattern Matching tool is an industry-first that allows users to implement contour-based part matching to locate parts and features from 2D or 3D data regardless of scale, orientation, partial occlusion, distortion, contrast or height reversal, and overlapping patterns. Surface Pattern Matching allows the user to find one or more patterns simultaneously in a single scan cycle, which is especially useful when scanning complex parts or surface features that have multiple patterns of interest.

Introducing Surface Pattern Matching

Support for custom HMI development

Using the new GoHMI SDK, programmers can now develop their own Gocator®-to-factory human-machine interface (HMI) using Visual Studio––making it much easier to develop a rich, interactive operator user experience customized to their inspection needs.

Introducing GoHMI SDK

“The introduction of mesh data support from multi-view scans and an industry-first combined 2D/3D pattern matching tool gives our customers the capability for solving both 2D and 3D inspection applications in one web-based user experience!” said Chi Ho Ng, LMI’s Vice President of Technology.

Other new tools and improvements for you to explore include:

  • Specialized translucent spot detection for scanning and inspection of semi-transparent materials
  • Surface Cylinder tool for increased flexibility in measuring cylindrical objects/features
  • Support for fixed-mount G3 sensor-robot calibration (eye-to-hand), useful in applications such as bin picking (when the G3 sensor is mounted over a tote/bin), or in welding and assembly applications

Gocator 6.1 comes with every new Gocator®. Order your Gocator® 3D smart sensor now at [email protected] for improved factory automation, inspection, and optimization.
