Inline Imaging Infrared i3LasWeld

Imaging infrared system for real-time laser welding process monitoring


  • False friends
  • Lack of penetration / lack of fusion
  • Cracks, pores
  • Underfilling

Main characteristics:

  • Easy adapt to standard laser welding heads using C-mount optical interface
  • 100% monitoring of welding processes
  • Real-time defect detection during the welding process
  • On-axis process observation using high-speed infrared imaging sensor (1 kHz)
