Abstract:Because of their construction and flexibility, industrial robots are suitable
to be used, with a laser source and an optical fiber, for laser welding
of 3D products. However, the positioning accuracy of robots are insufficient
for laser welding. Also the product and clamping tolerances are
too wide for laser welding. These problems can be solved by applying
sensors, which measure the location of the seam in real-time.
This paper describes the integration and performance of a commercial
seam tracking sensor with an industrial 6DOF robot
