You can avoid defective parts with TRUMPF's image processing solution VisionLine. VisionLine automatically detects the component position, forwards this information to the control, and ensures that the welding seam or marking is always in the right place. The system instantly detects whether a component is missing or if it has already been processed. The sensor system supports a variety of applications – from welding to marking. A check of the marked code can also be carried out very easily. Using an intuitive user interface and pre-defined attribute library, it is very easy to integrate VisionLine in the production process. After just a few work steps, the operator can get started immediately.
Enjoy the benefits of having TRUMPF as an entire system supplier – from the laser to the process sensor system and consulting
Reduce your component positioning requirements without any loss of quality
The person doing set-up work can perform processing tasks on their own, even if they have no previous experience.
You can save image data at any time to guarantee traceability.
You can integrate third-party systems for the recognition of characteristics into the laser control via an interface.
Welding of electronic components
The image processing system detects the pins that are to be welded, for example in electronic control units, sensors, and actuators.
Welding of joint connections
Image processing enables you to detect seam points when welding heat exchangers or seat rails, indicating they are welded at the right location.
Marking of text and code
VisionLine image processing finds the right position before the marking process, and, after marking, checks whether the content and quality of this meets the specifications.
A digital camera image with cross-hairs in the laser focus helps with workpiece monitoring and teaching. Using the VisionLine Basic in combination with the TRUMPF scanner optics of the PFO series is particularly advantageous. In this case, the offset between the laser light and monitoring light outside of the center of the scan field is corrected so that the focus position shown in the image corresponds to the actual position of the laser focus.
The automatic focal position setting automatically sets the right distance to the workpiece via a focus sharpness measurement. This means you save time setting up – a simple press of a button is enough.
With the reading back of the marked 1D or 2D code, you can ensure that the content is correct and legible. Optimal illumination is ensured so that even difficult industrial conditions are not a problem. The position and orientation of the code is still reported back.
VisionLine Trace Pro
In addition to reading out a code, with this package, its quality can also be checked – for example, in accordance with the AIM DPM quality metrics. This means you can monitor your process perfectly and document the results.
The recognition of characteristics enables image processing programs to be integrated simply into the production process. The appropriate distinguishing features can be selected from a template library for many application scenarios and can be configured using the user interface of the panel PC.
With an additional service package, TRUMPF provides a complete solution for complex image processing tasks. Programming the process-stable image processing, including extensive documentation is performed, subject to a successful feasibility study.
