Servo-Robot releases AUTO-TRAC/PWP weld seam tracking system
April 14, 2011 - Servo-Robot released AUTO-TRAC/PWP laser vision seam tracking system that dramatically improves weld productivity, quality and uptime.It can be installed on new equipment or retrofit to existing welders which are manually operated or utilize a mechanical probe for guidance. The digital high speed laser camera head has a large field of view combined with high resolution that allows this system to handle products ranging from thin sheet metal to 50mm thick steel. In the past, either a camera had to be optimized for small or large weld joints but could not do both. This is no longer a limitation.
Besides doing its main task of seam tracking, its ability to monitor the overall welding process provides useful data to facilitate Six Sigma continuous improvement efforts. Useful information includes part fit-up variability, system uptime and productivity metrics.
