Over the last several months, I have been working on the DS1000 series of 3D laser profilers.  It’s an exciting product and exciting technology.

3D displacement sensors provide a topographical representation of your part from which you can measure 3D features such as length, width, height, tilt or volume relative to any surface. It also simplifies challenging OCR or presence/absence applications by creating contrast from height changes, independent of color.  This approach delivers some really amazing results compared to 2D machine vision systems.

If you want to learn more about 3D inspection with laser profilers, join me on August 6 at 2pm ET (11am PT) for a webinar 30-minute webinar, Get 3D solutions for your real-world inspection challenges.

In this webinar, I will demonstrate:

An overview of laser displacement sensor technology,
3D solutions for many 2D inspection challenges, and
The DS1100 3D sensor from Cognex.

If you'd like to reduce scrap and achieve greater throughput by inspecting your product's three-dimensional features, then this webinar is for you!
