Gocator 3210 and 3506 Models Deliver Industrial 3D Snapshot Scanning At Metrology Resolutions, For Inline Applications
LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, recently launched Gocator 3210 and 3506, the latest additions to the Gocator line of smart, all-in-one structured light 3D snapshot sensors.
These metrology-grade, inline ready structured light sensors bring the rich data of lab-based machine vision solutions to the industrial, high-speed world of inline inspection for 100% quality control.

Gocator 3210 achieves 3D snapshot scans at 35 µm. With a large FOV (100 x 154 mm) for picking up multiple features at once, and onboard hardware acceleration to achieve 4 Hz scan speeds, the 3210 is ideal for high-speed, high-resolution inline inspection of large parts such as automotive components and body assemblies.

Gocator 3506 achieves an industry leading 12 µm resolution 3D snapshot scan at a 3 Hz acquisition rate. This medium FOV (30 x 45 mm) sensor is designed for highly accurate small parts inspection such as step-height, gap, roughness and coplanarity measurements common in electronics enclosure, PCB and battery/IC connector applications.
Both sensors include a new embedded dual-core controller with onboard hardware acceleration to achieve fast production speeds, and a new long-life industrial LED projector offering up to 10 years of continuous operation.
Snapshot sensors are pick-and-place friendly for robotic inspection applications, while providing the added benefit of scanning the target when it is stationary––effectively eliminating errors due to vibration.
“Gocator 3210 and 3506 are a breakthrough in speed, resolution, and industrial design. These smart snapshot sensors are the first in a line-up that fit into many applications where reduced complexity and cost are driving the decision away from traditional motion-based profiler solutions. Built on the scan-measure-control experience that Gocator customers expect, snapshot is now an inline choice for 100% quality control”, said Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies.
Includes Gocator Firmware 4.6 Release
Gocator Firmware 4.6 is available with the launch of the Gocator 3210/3506. Firmware 4.6 features hardware acceleration with on-board compression and Gocator Accelerator (GoX) to enable Gocator snapshot sensors to achieve industry-leading speeds required for 3D inline inspection.
The 4.6 release also includes expanded multisensor support and faster acceleration speeds for laser line profile sensors, as well as new geometric measurement tools. Gocator Firmware is available for free to anyone who owns a Gocator 3D smart sensor.
