Robotic Welding Laser Sensor
Feb 2011Meta Vision Systems Ltd.Request Info
Meta Vision Systems Ltd. has launched the Smart Laser Pilot, a
seam-tracking system for robotic welding. The proprietary Smart Laser Sensor (SLS)
upon which the system is based provides integrating high-performance image processing
functionality within the sensor head itself, making it possible to simplify the
overall architecture while enhancing robot interface flexibility. SLS technology
integrates a high-resolution megapixel camera, a laser stripe projector, and advanced
image processing hardware and software within a compact and rugged sensor head design.
Integral cooling (gas or chilled air or, optionally, water for more arduous applications),
front window blow-off and an integrated weld spatter shield ensure that the sensor
will survive in the most hostile welding environments.
