3D-A1000 Features

The 3D-A1000 dimensioning system is a compact and industrial smart camera, capable of capturing moving objects in both 3D and 2D. The system is equipped with powerful vision-based tools that automate tasks like container fill measurement, damage detection, feature finding and more. The 3D-A1000 provides fast, reliable results without any complicated setup or maintenance, allowing logistics facilities of any size to:

  • Estimate shipping costs
  • Optimize storage density
  • Track registered goods
  • Sort products efficiently
  • Recover lost revenue
  • Eliminate manual processes

Innovative 3D and 2D technology for powerful inspections

Unlike conventional methods, the 3D-A1000 uses patented 3D symbolic light technology to freeze motion with a single image. This generates more accurate 3D point cloud data, eliminating the need for complex calibration and encoder integration. Embedded processing enables use of powerful Cognex vision tools to run additional 3D + 2D inspections.

Elevate dimensioning with the 3D-A1000 Multi-Head Dimensioning System

The 3D-A1000 Multi-Head Dimensioning System captures more angles and perspectives for greater dimensioning capabilities. Using multiple devices, this fully configurable system offers expanded coverage to create a comprehensive, multi-perspective view. This adaptable solution is easy to set up and allows users to quickly and accurately dimension items at smaller gaps and faster belt speeds.
