laser welding monitoring device
The TRUMPF melt travel monitor monitors the lowering of the component during the laser transmission welding of plastics. The laser is switched off after a certain melting of the material. This provides you with better process monitoring and enables you to balance out production tolerances. A commercially available inductive melt travel sensor is also connected directly to the head of the scanner optics via an analog interface. The melt travel is displayed using the same software that is also used for the temperature control. You can also set up quality data storage (QDS). The melt travel measurement series then give you information regarding the quality of the welding process.
