Treotham expands 3D portfolio with new weCat3D profile sensors

Treotham has expanded their portfolio of Wenglor 2D/3D sensors with the
new performance class for weCat3D profile sensors, MLSL2 comprising of a total
of ten innovative models. With this expansion, the sensors provide even more
options for three-dimensional object measurement. In particular, they permit
large visual field widths of up to 1350mm in the X direction, as well as
increased laser power and even more extensive and faster profile detection.

While MLSL series sensors are only capable of covering visual field
widths of up to 280mm in the X direction, the ten new models offer visual field
widths of up to 1350mm in the X direction, allowing detection of significantly larger
objects.

The new sensors have diverse applications such as bin picking, pick
& place, gap measurement, object counting and 3D sealant bead monitoring among
others.

“Expansion of the performance range of the MLSL series is making it
possible for us to provide outstanding point cloud quality with a very broad
visual field over a large distance,” explains wenglorMEL managing director
Torsten Hellerstršm. “And all of these features are included in a compact
housing.”

With dimensions of just 200 x 67 x 38 mm, the ten new models represent a
successful mix of performance and compact design. Variants with different laser
classes including 2M, 3R and 3B and red or blue light also provide customers
with maximum diversity for product selection.

Functional principle of 3D object
measurement with laser

The high speeds and accuracy offered by the sensors result from their
functional principle: The 2D/3D sensors project a laser line onto the object to
be measured and then record it by means of an integrated camera. Two and
three-dimensional surface and volume profiles can thus be calculated with the
help of point clouds – quickly and accurately. With a total of 81 different
variants in the weCat3D series, the 3D experts at Treotham offer the greatest
possible diversity for the implementation of multi-dimensional applications.
