XG-X This 3-D measurement and inspection system from Keyence combines laser profiling technology with powerful 3-D image processing for parts inspection and quality control.

What's new? The product, which came out a few months ago, and the combination of technologies in one device.

Benefits Plug-and-play convenience and inspection capabilities beyond those possible with conventional laser profiling or traditional 2-D imaging. For example, the XG-X was used to detect a short-shot defect in a plastic connector made via insert molding that a 2-D area camera would not have found, Keyence said. Also, the system's programmable encoder can be set in one step.
