LMI Technologies’ Gocator 3D Smart Sensors Find 3 New Distributors

POSTED 09/26/2011

rong>Cadence Automation Inc., Advanced Control Solutions Inc., and Parameter AB sign-on as Gocator all-in-one 3D smart sensor distributors for the growing manufacturing markets of Quebec, the southern United States, and Scandinavia
VANCOUVER, CANADA -- LMI Technologies, a global industry leader in 3D laser measurement and control sensor technology, announced today that Cadence Automation Inc., Advanced Control Solutions Inc. (ACS), and Parameter AB have signed on as certified Gocator distributors. Companies in Quebec, the southern United States, and Scandinavia looking to improve their factory automation processes will now have access to LMI Technologies’ Gocator family of robust, easy to use, 3D laser measurement sensors.

Gocator laser line smart sensors are all-in-one solutions that make 3D measurement and control for factory automation accessible to all levels of expertise. Through Gocator’s built-in web tools, users can easily perform inline part inspection for 100% quality control, communicate results (either directly or to a PLC), as well as make sorting and tracking decisions. Gocators fit a large range of applications as fully functional standalone sensors, or when combined to create powerful multi-Gocator systems.

“Working with Cadence, ACS, and Parameter is exciting for us,” said LMI’s Director of Sales, Kevin Brown. “These are top tier companies with excellent reputations for providing their customers with market leading technology and this distribution network expansion represents significant revenue potential for all of our companies.”

“There is a growing shift towards 3D measurement in Quebec. We are seeing an increasing demand for flexible 3D measurement sensors that are easy to use,” said Marc-Andre Laurin, Sales Manager at Cadence. “It is a pleasure to be working with LMI and Gocator fits very well within our product mix and with the needs of our marketplace.”

“With manufacturing helping to drive the economic growth of the southern US, we are excited to be working with LMI to bring Gocator to a market looking for high-speed, accurate, and flexible 3D measurement sensors,” said ACS owner, David Pilliod. “This is an excellent opportunity for both of our companies and we expect market response to Gocator to be very positive.”

“Parameter has worked hard to establish its reputation for delivering the most advanced technology and the best solutions and Gocator sensors are a natural fit with product mix and our customers needs,” said Michael Cohn, CEO Parameter AB. “We are excited to be working with LMI Technologies as the first distributor of Gocator 3D smart sensors in Scandinavia and Poland.”

As a strong product entry into the burgeoning Quebec, southern United States and Scandinavian markets, these newly signed agreements hold substantial market potential for Gocator 3D smart sensors. With the manufacturing sectors pushing economic growth in all three regions, LMI and its new distributors are expecting a large volume of initial interest in Gocator. LMI Technologies has provided comprehensive training and sales support and inquires can now be handled directly through Cadence Automation Inc., Advanced Control Solutions Inc., and Parameter AB by visiting their corporate websites. Gocator inquires outside of these markets can be made by contacting LMI Technologies by visiting www.lmi3D.com.
