MVS 1050Meta Vision Systems claims its new SLS ARC laser sensor is optimised for robotic arc welding applications and is suitable for seam finding and real-time weld seam tracking in the usual welding processes, including high current GMAW and FCAW.
It offers fully automatic image quality optimisation, combined with new sensor optics and a mechanical design matched to the requirements of robot arc welding, says the company, and features direct Ethernet connection from the sensor head directly to the robot controller.
