Precitec has introduced its newest groundbreaking technology packages, EdgeTec and PierceTec. These packages contain much more than simply hardware and a focus on high-quality laser cutting processes
With the new 'All-In-Light' package, Precitec offers a solution for the complete optical chain – from the laser and the laser light fibre to the cutting head
At the Lasys show, Precitec presented the YW52 welding head with controlled weld position and weld seam width.
The integrated ScanTracker uses the welding optics to coaxially measure the joint in lateral and axial direction only a few millimetres in front of the TCP. The position acquired is immediately transferred to the controllable deflection mirror and a preselected scan amplitude and frequency is then overlaid.
