The new performance class for Wenglor’s weCat3D profile sensors MLSL2 includes a total of ten innovative models, each providing more options for 3D object measurement. In particular they permit large visual field widths of up to 1,350mm in the X direction, as well as increased laser power and even more extensive and faster profile detection.
The 2D/3D sensors project a laser line onto the object to be measured and then record it by means of an integrated camera. Two and three-dimensional surface and volume profiles can thus be calculated with the help of point clouds – quickly and accurately. With the new additions, which enable significantly larger objects to be detected than in the past, a total of 81 different variants now exist in the weCat3D series. Diverse applications such as bin picking, pick-and-place, gap measurement, object counting and 3D sealant bead monitoring are enabled with this technology.
With dimensions of just 200mm x 67mm x 38mm, the ten new models represent a successful mixture of performance and compact design. Variants with different laser classes including 2M, 3R and 3B and red or blue light also provide customers with maximum diversity for product selection.
