Scan Solution

GARCHING, Germany — Scan SolutionBlackbird Robotersysteme GmbH has announced a scan solution with an integrated distance sensor.

Based on OCT, the system detects and measures 3D laser weld seam topographies in high resolution, which is helpful for industrial system integrators and users looking to secure process safety and comprehensive quality management without a separate monitoring solution. The device captures and analyzes detailed data within and beyond the actual laser processing zone including analysis of to-be-welded components, seam tracking of fillet welds, and real-time detection of any weld errors or imperfections occurring during weld operations.

The OCT sensor's measuring light is coaxially coupled in a laser weld head's beam path and then guided together with the laser beam via the weld head's main mirrors. Monitoring therefore always takes place directly within the process zone – thereby inherently avoiding contour following limitations that occur to some extent in lateral monitoring solutions. The measuring beam has a scan system of its own that enables positioning all around the processing point. The integrated high-quality sensor and finely coordinated calibration between the OCT scanner and laser scan system all team up to ensure high scanning frequencies and measurement accuracy between the scan head and to-be-welded components, permitting a detailed 3D representation of the weld seam for unequivocal quality assurance.
