The TRUMPF sensor system monitors the quality of your processes. It supplies you with data continuously and controls the process in accordance with your requirements. The intelligent process sensor system helps you to save money during production by making it quicker to set up processes or enabling the feed rate to be increased during processing. You also avoid production rejects and unnecessary laser-power surpluses. The TRUMPF sensor system is ideal for integration in optics, lasers, and systems – and as TRUMPF is a complete system provider, you can obtain everything from a single source.
Improve your process capability with VisionLine. TRUMPF image processing detects characteristics on components and ensures that welding takes place in the correct location.
Melt travel monitor
The TRUMPF melt travel monitor switches off the laser during laser transmission welding of plastic parts after a certain amount of material melting. This improves the process monitoring and helps to balance out production tolerances.
The CalibrationLine from TRUMPF checks whether the focal position and laser power on the workpiece actually match your requirements, at regular, individually definable intervals. If necessary, the calibration tool corrects the focus in the X, Y, and Z direction, as well as the laser power, and brings the program back in line with reality.
Seam position control
The TRUMPF seam position control detects the seam point during the welding process and controls the welding position. The non-contact process enables high feed rates. Additional monitoring of the welded seam ensures maximum quality.
The TRUMPF temperature control registers the intensity of the thermal radiation on the component surface and controls the laser power based on the nominal temperature. This ensures a visually consistent welding result on plastic parts.
