 D Laser Displacement Sensor Applications

Unlike traditional 2D machine vision, the DS1000 laser profiler provides 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 colour.

  • Read embossed or raised characters such as those on automobile tires
  • Detect missing objects in boxes or packages by height inspection
  • Identify surface defects and chips
  • Measure heights and tilts of components to determine misalignment
  • Verify the correct volume for portion control
