Total confidence with TRUMPF process sensors!
You can avoid defective parts with TRUMPF's image processing solution VisionLine. Camera-based image processing means you can keep an eye on everything for cutting and welding applications. VisionLine automatically detects the component position, forwards this information to the control, and ensures that the welding seam is always in the right place. With the Basic, Detect and Project options, you can choose between simple monitoring of the workpiece, characteristics recognition or a customer-specific extension. Image processing is available for lasers with optics as an integrator package as well as for the TruLaser Station and TruLaser Cell systems.
Thanks to the 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 start right away.
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 attribute library supports the person doing the set-up work as they create their image processing tasks.
You can save image data at any time to guarantee traceability.
Hairpin welding with VisionLine image processing
A typical application for VisionLine image processing is
position recognition of hairpins in stators which are used in electric motors.
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.
Quality checks via VisionLine
VisionLine offers an auto focus function for the laser as well as separate focus position settings for camera and laser, making laser processing and quality control possible across several levels.

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.
Edge-detection offers the option of integrating simple characteristics recognition on the workpiece in the production process for position correction. The appropriate distinguishing features (for example, blots, circles, lines or intercept points) can be selected from a template library for many application scenarios.
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.
