trinamiX 3D Imaging is based on our patented technology Beam Profile Analysis. Beam Profile Analysis is an active measuring principle, which means that the object to be measured is illuminated with a light source emitting a regular dot pattern. The reflection of each light spot is captured by a sensor (e.g. a CMOS camera) and its beam profile is then analyzed. From the specific beam profile, we extract the distance and information about the material of the measured object.
