High resolution lenses for machine vision — standard and custom lens design

Laser Scanners Help Guide Machinery in Warehouses

High Resolution Lenses for machine vision, instrumentation, inspection and vibration-sensitive applications. Standard and custom hi-res lens assemblies.

Laser technology has been very beneficial in many different sectors in businesses and we are seeing the technology pop up in more places than ever before. With the use of diode laser lens assemblies along with the utilization of reflector marks we are able to map out landscapes with incredible precision. We are now seeing this technology gain a lot of headway in the warehousing and distribution industry.

A lot of warehouses are now using the technology of laser-guided navigation systems. These systems allow companies to map out the entire warehouse for machinery to pass through. These laser systems actually guide unmanned equipment through the aisles and around corners of the warehouse with great precision. These laser systems are also able to detect if something is in the path of any machinery and promptly alerts the machine to stop until the obstruction is moved. These navigation systems also allow for alternate routes should the normal route be impassable.

This technology allows warehouses to run more smoothly overall and reduces the need for employees to run these machines. The laser systems have proven to be extremely and intelligent which eliminates the human error that causes accidents in these warehouses. It’s quite a remarkable technology with a huge upside of possibilities for the future. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll see the cars on the road run on a similar laser navigation system.
