Inspecting Metal Gas Cylinder Forming

Find out how ECCO 3D sensors ensure production quality in sheet metal forming. Sergio Badocco – Owner of MDA is excited: “Before the implementation of the system, a manual measurement was made on random samples using a jig tool, which took at least two minutes to check the whole surface. With the SmartRay sensor it takes 5 seconds to automatically check the surface, resulting in 96% of time saved for a single check. In addition it is now possible to perform the inspection on 100% of production”. Get the full application story here:

SmartRay introduces its first 3D sensor for glass and specular surfaces

SmartRay has added to its industry-leading ECCO 95 range a new sensor designed to scan glass and specular surfaces. The ECCO 95.015G is our first sensor designed specifically for flat and specular reflective surfaces. Previously, the 3D scanning of these surfaces has not been possible, because the laser would pass through the glass. Combining our existing ECCO 95 sensor technology with optimised optics enables the surface to be scanned, while maintaining the compact sensor size. The ECCO 95.015G also provides the high-resolution, high-speed accuracy and reliability associated with the ECCO range. Offering superior 3D data quality, the glass sensor is [...]

SmartRay – “In a nutshell”

SmartRay specialise in 3D Sensors* for inspection, guidance and measurement; that help manufacturing companies improve product quality, guide automation and reduce production costs. By focusing on 3D, SmartRay has built a comprehensive portfolio of products designed to solve a rapidly increasing range of industrial applications. The company’s strategy is to combine new technologies with German engineering to create a range of 3D Sensors that can be fitted anywhere, are quick to set up and easy to deploy.

SmartRay sensors combine laser triangulation with innovative image formation technology to create detailed 3D images that can be processed by any 3rd party vision software. The latest ECCOTM family brings a new design philosophy to the 3D Sensor market that delivers high performance, small size, lightweight and stylish packaging. SmartRay 3D technology also forms the core of the WeldVisionTM high speed inline weld inspection systems, employed by major automotive manufacturers to verify weld seam quality.

Based in the Munich area of Germany, the company’s global coverage is expanding rapidly through a network of distributors and system integrators. For more details, visit SmartRay at
