Robotic sensors

Laser search sensor FD-QD

High-accuracy workpiece position detection sensor using laser.

  •     Realizes higher speed and higher accuracy than those of the touch sensor.
  •     Allows high accuracy detection for a wide spectrum of applications from thin plate to medium thickness plate.
  •     Allows recognition of various welding joints by easy operation.
  •     Allows visual check of the recognition result using a teach pendant.
  •     Enables automatic change of the welding condition based on the recognition result.
  •     Can be used for applications other than welding.
