Frost & Sullivan recognizes LMI Technologies for 3-D sensors

APRIL 15, 2008--Frost & Sullivan (Palo Alto, CA, USA) recognized LMI Technologies with the 2007 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership.

APRIL 15, 2008--Based on its recent analysis in the field of laser-based three-dimensional (3-D) vision sensors for industrial process monitoring and control, Frost & Sullivan (Palo Alto, CA, USA) recognized LMI Technologies with the 2007 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Leadership for its wide range of laser-based 3-D vision sensor models and configurations. LMI currently markets its range of vision sensors under the names LMI Selcom, DynaVision, FireSync, and HexSight. Apart from having a standard product line, the company also offers custom design and manufacturing of vision sensors for large OEMs.

LMI 3-D high-speed laser line sensors are being used for inspection of geometry of products in the food industry. In addition, the sensors perform color inspection to identify abnormalities such as discoloration and bruises and also the presence of foreign objects. The company's sensors combine both detection of 3-D geometry and color in one sensor package, in contrast to other vision systems that use separate cameras for detection of these parameters. This feature brings down the cost and complexity of the system.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has pioneered the development and introduction of an innovative technology into the market--a technology that has either impacted or has the potential to impact several market sectors. The award recognizes a company's successful technology development that is expected to bring significant contributions to the industry in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture.
