PC-Controlled Dimensioning System

The robust 3D inspection sensor, Gocator 2300 with a field-of-view of up to 1260mm uses a projected laser line to perform high-resolution scanning, measurement of multiple objects traveling on a Dorner low profile conveyor.

As boxes travel along the conveyor they pass under the laser with the inspection results sent to a PC. By adding an ID reader or robot you can create a full-fledged palletizing system!

  • Multiple objects can be inspected simultaneously
  • Almost any object can be measured
  • Micron level precision

Safety Laser Scanner Recommendation from Jason Brickner

"One of my favorite products I share with customers is SICK’s microScan3 safety laser scanner.  Over the past 11 years, SICK has made them smaller, more powerful, and less expensive. The newest model, the microScan3 is their best one yet. It supports up to 128 stored safety fields with 8 active fields at any time. It seemlessly integrates with Ethernet/IP and PROFINET. I’ve helped several customers integrate these into open workcells where easy operator access was essential to high throughput. The new Pro version even supports mobile applications with navigational measurement data."

Integrated Absolute Encoders Simplify Machine Design

Lexium MDrive integrated motor products are available with multi-turn absolute encoders for rotary and linear motion. With the ongoing trend of integrating more components into single units, the addition of absolute encoders can eliminate sensors and reduce machine startup time, increasing efficiency while lowering cost.

A linear motion axis with traditional open loop system with incremental encoder performs a homing sequence with 1 home and 2 limit sensors. Designing an absolute encoder based system can perform sensorless homing, thus eliminating three sensors, the wiring from those sensors and the design and labor overhead needed to install, harness and maintain three sensors.
