Perceptron introduces new laser scanning sensors.


Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRCP) said it has extended the performance of its market leading HELIX smart scanning sensor with the addition of HELIX HDR, a higher power and extended dynamic range version.

HELIX HDR produces a thinner laser line and higher power, coupled with a wider measurement resolution that allows measurement of the most demanding applications including highly reflective surfaces such as finely machined aluminum castings.

Perceptron's CEO Jeff Armstrong said, "This new family of HELIX HDR sensors extend our capabilities by enabling measurement of extremely demanding applications in the automotive and aerospace sectors where machined aluminum is used extensively."

The patented HELIX smart scanning sensor is used extensively throughout the global automotive industry for in-process laser scanning of car bodies for dimensional stability and gap-and-flush measurement.

HELIX incorporates MEMS technology and offers the world's only programmable laser scanner, where the laser line quantity, density, length and orientation characteristics are all user-programmable.

This eliminates the need to physically move the laser unit during scanning, which helps ensure both accurate and repeatable measurement results.

Perceptron supplies a comprehensive range of automated industrial metrology products and solutions to manufacturing organizations for dimensional gauging, dimensional inspection and 3D scanning.
