Weld seam localisation on tubes
Manual inspection for small defects and manually identifying the highest point of the grinded longitudinal weld bead is nearly impossible.
The QuellTech Laser Scanner Q6-C15-45 with its high resolution perfectly matches the requirements for a reliable weld seam localisation, as it is able to scan glossy tubes and obtain a reflection free 3D point cloud. This point cloud analyzed by the Quelltech Software, delivers the highest point of the profile and outputs an alarm if the corresponding item is out of tolerance. In these cases, the ultrasonic inspection can be omitted.
The whole testing procedure could be accelerated: QuellTech Laser Scanner delivers quickly the coordinates to guide the ultrasonic test system on the weld seam in a reliable measurement. This way tubes with faulty seams can be screened in no time.
