Position Monitoring of Car Body Parts with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors
In automotive shell construction, body parts such as doors, tailgates or fenders are welded by robots. To ensure that the parts for the welding process are correctly positioned, long-range laser distance sensors with wintec check their exact position in the welding device. The sensor’s robust stainless steel 316L housing is resistant to welding spatter or sparks. The optical lens has a special coating and is therefore also very resistant. If it wears, it can be replaced with a new lens without having to replace the entire sensor.
