Optical sensors for seam tracking and robot teaching applications

The system is a kit composed of 2 elements, an optical sensor for joints tracking in welding applications, both in metal inert gas (MIG) or laser welding, and a machine vision supported system for aiding the programming tasks of solid state robot welding and cutting operations. The main benefit of the first element of the kit is that it allows high performances in welding processes with great accuracy and low cost. The second element of the kit offers an important aid in manual teaching, providing an accuracy greater than 0.1 mm in the coordinates acquisition process. It is also offers the best solution for calibrating programs obtained in offline programming systems. The complete kit eliminates inaccuracies and time consuming operations.
