Welcome to the second QuellTech newsletter:

3D laser scanner applications

The requirements for in-line quality checks are growing steadily, and what works in theory can look very different in practice. The increasing complexity of applications makes a proof of concept in practice, therefore required. Today we would like to introduce you to three new applications with QuellTech Laser Sensors from industry practice for the areas: Contactless Inline Seam Tracking, Detection of Continuous Materials and Inline Inspections on Large Measuring Objects. Stay in touch with us!

Thermal warping during welding

Inline Seam Tracking: Compensation of Thermal Warping during Welding

It is well known that warpage of welded components is caused by the heat generated in the course of the welding process. Deviations of the welding path are possible in all three directions, so that the process does not take place at the optimum position of the gap, and also the geometrical shape of the object finally may change. This problem results in reduced stability, rework cost and even rejections.

Inspection of continuous materials: Defects on metal brake lines and hydraulic tubes

Due to the production process, the quality of continuous material is often affected by chips, scratches and geometrical deviations which represent a widespread problem. It is not possible to reduce significantly corresponding cost without inline quality supervision integrated immediately after the process.

Metalworking: Detection of ultra-fine surface defects on large scale objects

Small Surface defects on large surfaces cannot be identified by human eye; the same is valid for height deviations smaller than 500 µm over a width of up to 3000 mm. Quality requirements for industrial metal plates however have increased, particularly with respect to homogenous flatness, thickness and absence of surface defects. These requirements by conventional manual measuring methods cannot be met.
