Gocator 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 inspections, quality controls, 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.
“It is satisfying to have Gocator considered for an award of this calibre,” said LMI CEO, Terry Arden. “The Gocator family is all about driving 100% inspection into the factory automation industry at a level suitable for process engineers and electricians and being recognized by influential industry experts further validates the product’s potential.”
Awarded by a panel of industry leading machine vision experts, the Vision Award recognizes an outstanding product or processes. The winning product will garner its developer an award plus a €5,000 prize presented at a show event on November 8th, 2011. The Vision Award winner is also invited to host a Vision press conference to present a paper on their innovation to a panel of industry leaders and decision makers attending the trade fair.
