In-Sight Laser Profiler

Verify product dimensions easily and reliably

In-Sight Laser Profiler

The In-Sight® laser profiler is a measurement system used to verify that a part’s dimensions meet specifications. The In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder® user interface. This intuitive, easy-to-use software makes it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy and support high accuracy measurements on the factory floor.

Set up and configuration in 4 easy steps:

With a click of a button, profile optimization technology renders the most accurate outline of your part.

Sophisticated object detection technology minimizes the need for costly fixturing and ensures measurements are performed in the correct location.

The flexible In-Sight laser profiler toolset extracts features, constructs reference points and verifies whether a product has been manufactured within tolerance.

Measurements are sent to a PLC or an overall pass/fail is sent directly as a discrete output.

The In-Sight laser profiler is ideal for a wide variety of industries including:

car door manufacturing flush and gap inspection by insight laser profiler


Ideal for a wide range of automotive applications including: inspecting the thickness of clutch plates, measuring the area of weld seams, checking the position of sun roof adhesive and inspecting engine block alignment.
