LMI Technologies’ Gocator All-In-One 3D Smart Sensors Find Their First Distributor in China

POSTED 01/26/2012

LMI Technologies’ all-in-one Gocator 3D Smart Sensor gains entry into the world's largest manufacturing economy through new China based distributor China Daheng Group Inc. Beijing Image Vision Technology Branch

LMI Technologies, a global industry leader in 3D laser measurement and control sensor technology, today announced that China Daheng Group Inc. Beijing Image Vision Technology Branch (Daheng) has signed on as an authorized distributor of Gocator 3D smart sensors in China. This distribution deal marks Gocator’s entry into the world’s second largest economy and arguably the most expansive manufacturing marketplace.

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. All Gocators come with a web browser based user interface and optional built-in measurement tools making them easy to use and integrate. Users can easily perform inline part inspection for 100% quality control, communicate results (either directly or to a PLC), and automate sorting and tracking functions.

Models come in different fields of view and measurement ranges ensuring there is a preconfigured Gocator for every application. Gocators are available in both VGA and Megapixel resolutions in order to accommodate the varying speed and accuracy requirements of factory automation. They can also be combined into multi-Gocator systems to fully accommodate large items or to measure a single item from multiple perspectives.

“Establishing distributor presence in China was an important part of our global distribution strategy for Gocator,” said LMI's Director of Sales, Kevin Brown. “Daheng is a market leader in sensor technology integration and we feel they are the ideal partner for capitalizing on China’s growing factory automation market. “

"Having our revolutionary 3D smart sensor technology available in China marks a significant milestone for LMI and Gocator,” said Richard Whitehead, Director of Marketing for LMI. “We are excited to be working with Daheng and are confident their machine vision expertise will quickly propel Gocator’s market presence in this lucrative region.”

“We are seeing an explosive need for 3D inspection and measurement sensors that improve the quality of production,” said Daheng’s Manger of Development, Duan Deshan. “We are excited to be able to address this demand by working with LMI Technologies to bring their Gocator line profiler technology to China.”

With Daheng’s extensive machine vision industry expertise, Gocator’s initial market impact is expected to be substantial. Having completed LMI Technologies’ thorough distributor training process, Daheng can now field Gocator inquiries as an authorized distributor. Gocator information in is now available, in Mandarin, on Daheng’s corporate website - http://www.daheng-image.com.
