3D Laser Displacement Sensor Applications
Unlike traditional 2D machine vision, Cognex 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. They also simplify challenging OCR or presence/absence applications by creating contrast from height changes, independent of color.

  • 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.
