MLZL141 2D/3D Profile Sensor

Available from stock
Fully automated welding places great demands on quality and precision. Consequently, the correct position of the respective seam must be reliably detected before the welding process is started in the robot cell. Welding systems are equipped with innovative weCat3D 2D/3D profile sensors for the purpose of weld seam tracking.
