The Benefits of Using 3D Vision

The Benefits of Using 3D Vision

The In-Sight 3D-L4000 - from one of VisionID’s leading technology partners Cognex - is a breakthrough in 3D vision technology. The unique vision system combines 3D laser displacement technology with a smart camera allowing factory engineers to quickly, accurately, and cost effectively solve a wide variety of inspections on an automated production line.

Here are some of the benefits of using 3D Vision Systems such as the In-Sight 3D-L4000:

Compact, Powerful 3D Solution

The In-Sight 3D-L4000 offers the compact form factor of a smart camera while delivering the power of an FPGA-accelerated, 8-core Intel processor. With a 2K linear sensor calibrated to the patented speckle-free blue laser optics, the In-Sight 3D-L4000 has the ability to simultaneously capture high-resolution 3D point clouds for measurements and high-resolution 2D images for secondary 2D-quality inspections and product tracking. 

Speckle-Free Laser Ensures Safety and Accuracy

In addition to hardening the 3D camera against debris and contamination, the patented speckle-free blue laser optical system in the In-Sight 3D-L4000 captures higher quality images than traditional laser displacement sensors. The shorter blue wavelength and the unprecedented sharpness of the speckle-free laser line combine to provide more accurate 3D point clouds, meaning more accurate quality assurance systems.

The unique 3D scan engine also delivers more light to the inspection surface and is safer than any other competing 3D laser scanner solution.

Intuitive Software Designed Just for 3D

Programmed in In-Sight’s intuitive spreadsheet environment, the In-Sight 3D-L4000 includes all the traditional 3D measurement tools users expect, such as plane and height finding. It also comes with a full set of 3D vision tools, designed to leverage inspections in a true 3D space.

Unlike typical 3D systems, which transform 3D images into representational 2D height maps for basic tool processing, the In-Sight 3D-L4000 allows users to place vision tools directly on true 3D images of parts. True 3D inspections increase accuracy and expand the types of inspections that can be performed.

From its compact form to its speckle-free laser and intuitive In-Sight spreadsheet interface, the In-Sight 3D-L4000 is designed to help customers quickly and easily set up and run 3D applications. The system simplifies application development and streamlines factory integration with a full I/O and communications function set. It also combines 2D and 3D vision tools in the same application, leading to quicker deployments.
