Sheet edge measurement with laser welding using laser scanners
Automated robotic welding cells monitor the quality of pipes with longitudinal welding on the basis of several points. On the one hand, the edge position must be known along the sheet edge length while also ensuring the optimal alignment of the sheet edge.
Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon which process several measurement programs in the integrated controller are used for monitoring the alignment. The scanCONTROL SMART sensors require no additional controller, which considerably simplifies the installation procedure. These scanners provide high accuracy and can also be integrated in confined spaces.
