WHY YOU NEED 3D

3D technology captures the shape of an object as opposed to 2D which only captures contrast. With 3D shape, you can measure geometric features on a surface regardless of surface color. 

In summary, 3D offers:

  • Volumetric measurement (X,Y, and Z-axis) provides shape and position related parameters
  • Contrast invariant, ideal for inspecting low contrast objects
  • Immune to minor lighting variation or ambient light
  • Higher repeatability due to integrated optics, lighting, and pre-calibration
  • Simpler to build multi-sensor setups for large object inspection

That's just the beginning! To learn more, read our 2D+3D white paper.

Sensor Networking

Sensor networking allows for maximum scan coverage
on large or complex objects.

LMI sensors can be networked up to 24 sensors on one Master Hub, with distributed synchronization between sensors.
