Automated Weld Seam Tracking During Container Welding with Linear Axes Using 2D/3D Profile Sensors

During automated welding of steel tanks, it is very important to place the weld precisely. For this purpose, the tank parts are optically measured by 2D/3D profile sensors installed on the welding torch. The sensor system determines the contour and transmits the position data via an analysis module to the linear axes for guiding the torch. The sensors are protected against welding spatter and ambient light with a special protective housing. An integrated software module also enables easy parameterization of different types of joints.

2D/3D Profile Sensors

Sensors of this type measure profiles of objects such as weld seams or glue beads and check roundness or gaps using laser triangulation. Red or blue laser light, open interfaces and various performance classes are available.
