Machine Vision & Inspection
By Alyssa Dalton
Servo-Robot introduces its high-resolution 3-D Quanta laser-camera for both joint tracking and weld bead inspection. The camera is specially designed for welding processes such as laser, TIG or plasma welding. It is an essential module in the Servo-Robot Modular DIGI-LAS Laser Welding System (DIGI-LAS/MDL), which includes automatic joint tracking, joint inspection and inline quality control functions. This integrated system can be mounted on robots or special purpose welding machines. The Quanta laser-camera also features a 2-D video viewing system with its own welding area lighting for remote monitoring of the process by the operator and for calibration purposes.
