STATE-OF-THE-ART IN-LINE INSPECTION WITH WELDVISION™

For automotive companies and other manufacturers who weld their products, WeldVision™ solutions offer the highest precision, laser-based, 3D weld seam inspection available.

MIG / MAG Welding

MIG (metal inert gas) and MAG (metal active gas) are now the most common welding processes in use today. Advantages include high welding speed, the range of metals the process can be applied to and the ease of adapting to robotic automation.

Laser Welding

Laser welding is particularly suited to joining materials with a high melting point or where the concentrated heat source allows for narrow, deep welds and small heat-affected zones. Both continuous and pulsed laser beams are used depending on the application.

laser brazing

With laser brazing, the mating parts are joined by a filler material, or braze. The surface of the brazed seam is smooth and clean, forming a nicely curved transition to the work piece. Since solder seams do not require finishing, this process reduces overall manufacturing costs.

Inspection: Detects and classifies typical welding defects, including pores, holes, splash, edge notches and end craters.
Guidance: WeldVision can be integrated into any manufacturing process and provides accurate robot guidance.
Measurement: Monitor the quality of your welded assembly by checking critical measurements with geometric precision.
