Part profile verifications are used across a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, consumer products, and food and beverage, to ensure parts are manufactured within specified tolerances. Slight dimensional variations can adversely affect product quality, consumer safety and brand integrity. The In-Sight laser profiler identifies these issues before they reach customers.

The unit combines an easy-to-use interface and the VC200 vision controller, along with the accuracy and dependability of the company’s 3D laser displacement technology. Anyone who knows how to use a 2D In-Sight system can set up a laser profiler application within minutes. Additionally, the In-Sight Laser Profiler also makes it easier to monitor production line activity from anywhere on the factory floor using a web-enabled laptop, tablet or smartphone.
