Precitec

YW52 welding 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.
