K|Lens is a high-tech start-up with roots in the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken. We have developed a patented light-field optic that makes it possible to simultaneously record 9 perspectives of an object.
The K|Lens system is the perfect solution for 100% automated inline inspection of small parts with deep structures and high walls. By simultaneously capturing 9 perspectives, our software generates high-density 3D point clouds for metrology or AI-based anomaly detection. This avoids typical imaging problems such as reflections or shadows. Thanks to the one-shot technology, the K|Lens is also video-capable - this enables real-time inspections of dynamic processes too, such as welding, laser cutting etc.
