INLINE IMAGING INFRARED I3LASWELD
On line Infrared Imaging system for assessing in real time the quality of laser welding processes
I3LASWELD – News
New Infrared Technologies (NIT), in collaboration with the AIMEN Centro Tecnológico, has developed the I3LASWELD system for the inline quality control of laser welding processes, capable of detecting defects in weld seams in real time and identifying defective parts.
The I3LASWELD system (Inline Infrared Imaging Laser Welding QA) is based on a high speed infrared camera (1 kHz) manufactured by NIT, opto-mechanically coupled to the laser optics, which continuously monitors the geometry of the melt-pool.
