Seam Tracking Sensor TH6i
The eyes of the robot - specifically designed for zero gap welds.
With the TH6i, all the features of the TH6D laser seam tracking is yours with the added capability of a second greyscale camera system to produce outstanding seam tracking performance for zero gap weld applications and highly reflective materials. TH6i is the only sensor in the world that manages gap detection from 0.02 mm even on highly reflective surfaces.
TH6i's in-process optical seam tracking system paves the way towards a perfect welding seam. Especially suited for butt weld applications with narrow joint gaps, TH6i detects seams and gaps that are hardly visible to the human eye.
Components and minimal joints are recorded using a combination of laser lines, camera, greyscale camera system, and a green light that allows the course of the welding seam to be corrected in real time. Contact free and independent of both system and process, the method is suitable for all standard seam shapes and types of material.
TH6i can even be used to track round shapes and the most reflective metals used for welding, including aluminum and even diamond plate.
