LMI Releases Smart Vision Accelerator
LMI Technologies (LMI), a leader in 3D scanning and inspection, has announced the official release of its GoMax® NX Smart Vision Accelerator.
GoMax® NX is a compact, fanless, high-performance embedded device that allows users to accelerate any Gocator® sensor or multi-sensor network in heavy-duty inspection applications that require increased data processing power.
The GoMax® NX runs on the Gocator® web browser interface and allows benefits such as adding GPU-accelerated data processing power to Gocator® 3D laser profilers and snapshot sensors, accelerating Gocator® multi-sensor networks and adding multiple GoMax® NX units to scale up sensor network acceleration.
All-round, the GoMax® NX is designed to enhance data processing power in real-time, minimizing cycle times and augmenting overall inspection performance so “customers can achieve optimal results”.
Applications for the accelerator include multi-sensor ring scanning for materials like composite flooring, robot-mounted weld inspection for areas such as automotive weld inspection using a Gocator snapshot sensor mounted on a robot, inspecting various points around the frame of the vehicle. A final and modern application is EV battery foam inspection, where volumetric measurement and quality inspection of EV battery protective foam can take place with Gocator snapshot sensors.
“Users can simply connect GoMax® NX to any Gocator® sensor and use the intuitive web browser-based interface to activate sensor acceleration. And, now equipped with the NVIDIA® Jetson® Xavier™ NX system-on-module, this next-generation smart vision accelerator provides more low-latency processing power to your automated inspection applications than ever before”, said Robert Uebbing, Technical Product Manager, LMI Technologies.
