3D + 2D technology provides functionality beyond dimensioning

Unlike conventional methods, the 3D-A1000 uses patented 3D symbolic light technology to freeze motion with a single image. This generates more accurate 3D point cloud data, eliminating the need for complex calibration and encoder integration. Embedded processing enables use of powerful Cognex vision tools to run additional 3D + 2D inspections.
