WeldMaster Track off-axis

The so-called Scheimpflug or off-axis configuration is beneficial with robot applications or machines for welding large-scale components. The camera is integrated along the illumination unit into a dedicated housing, which is mounted to the welding head or to the machine frame in the process area. There are three different Scheimpflug cameras to choose from, depending on the standoff distance and resolution required. As a rule, axes designed specifically for fine positioning control the welding head, the control signal of the WeldMaster Track system delivers the time-critical signals for this process. The Scheimpflug configuration allows the camera system to have a very large working range towards the profile line and produces a better image quality than the coaxial configuration. The WD55 LED camera can be used to detect a zero gap. The standoff distance on this camera is correspondingly smaller and must be kept constant.
