Our laser welding measurement devices measure the output power and detect changes and errors. The laser power at every welded point and the reflected laser beam can be measured and assessed and the details can be saved.
The monitor detects welding defects and errors such as gaps between parts, missing parts, weld depth over-penetration, incorrect focus point and cover gas absence. It provides feedback to operators on the resultant laser weld quality.
It is ideal for both process development and quality control for production laser welding applications. The unit works by detecting and recording a thermal signal from the area of laser interaction and converting this into a graphical waveform.
Absolute max/min limits can be set and value envelopes can be drawn around the waveform. Once the limits are determined, the unit compares a new weld waveform in real time to identify a good or bad weld.
The compact, 3 kg (7 lb) unit reduces set-up space when integrated into a production line or used in a laboratory environment. The sensor can be mounted either on the optical axis of the laser beam trajectory or in an off-axis position.
Send your sample to one of our technology centers in Europe for an evaluation. We will then determine which solution meets your needs best. Amada Miyachi Europe offers feasibility testing and application consulting.
