Innovative 3D vision system offers new possibilities for automated inspection

The new In-Sight 3D-L4000 3D vision system from Cognex Germany now makes inspecting parts in 3D as easy as using a 2D smart camera. Its new technology produces better image quality, simplified application development, and a broad range of true 3D inspection tools – expanding the range of applications in industrial automation significantly.

The new device’s technical advancements and user-friendly features make it ideal for a wide range of applications in multiple industries, including automotive, consumer products, food and beverage, packaging, medical devices and electronics. Its excellent ease of use and the fact that no external PC, and therefore no programming skills, are needed for setup and processing finally make laser-based 3D imaging a viable and cost-effective option. Automation engineers can now truly choose between 2D and 3D.
