See it all.
See it always.
At line speed.
A new dimension in manufacturing.
Everything we do begins with our enabling technology: Coherix 3D™. It allows you to see in three dimensions with unmatched accuracy in even the most complex applications. It is the new eyes of manufacturing, providing a clarity and depth never before achieved.
When combined with our powerful software, Coherix 3D is able to see, report, respond, and adapt. Right now, around the world, Coherix 3D’s inline bead inspection system has helped customers optimize their dispensing processes. How? By inspecting your most critical and complex applications. Or, going one step further, helping you adapt, improve, and get one step closer to perfection through Adaptive Process Control.
Game changing technology. Easily added.
Coherix 3D doesn’t require an entirely new manufacturing setup. It is designed to be mounted around the glue, sealant, or adhesive dispensing nozzle, easily communicating with your dispenser and robot protocols. It features hardware with four high-speed 3D sensors that provide a 360-degree/3D view of adhesive and sealant beads 400 times per second per sensor. It measures bead width, height, volume, and location, detecting and correcting gaps or neck-downs. Built with a solid aluminum frame and no moving parts, it’s designed to withstand impacts and adhesive spills in the manufacturing environment. Our goal? To keep things moving forward. Always.

Once and done
Single-pass 3D adhesive and sealant bead inspection is accomplished using four high-speed laser sensors leading and trailing the dispensing nozzle to track and inspect the material when applied. Acquiring and processing 400 samples per second, Coherix 3D has industry-leading acquisition speed, avoiding production slow-downs.
Easy to integrate
Coherix 3D mounts around the dispensing nozzle. It easily communicates with whatever protocol your dispenser or robot uses and does not add complexity to robot programming. There are no time-consuming setup changes required for robot speed changes commonly required on other available systems.
Coherix 3D Inline Inspection leverages a 3D high-speed imaging and processing platform, which has proven reliability, inspecting millions of customer parts to date. In addition, Coherix 3D technology has been widely deployed for bead inspection for numerous applications including powertrain RTV, body shop structural adhesive and sealants, final assembly urethane glass, battery thermal paste, and more with OEM and Tier suppliers globally.
The Coherix 3D sensor is built with a solid aluminum frame to withstand impacts and IP67 sealed housing that protects the unit in a production environment. There are no moving parts and Coherix 3D is the online system that stays online.
