Laser Welding

Collision Sensor for Laser Welding.

Problem defined.

A laser welding head utilizes state-of-the-art optics with laser diodes attached to a robotic arm. A collision sensor is needed to protect expensive laser tooling and robotic arms in the event of a collision.

Solution in reach.

Applied Robotics’ collision sensor is dynamically variable with a regulated air supply that provides positive pressure to hold the unit rigid. In a collision, the air chamber seal is opened immediately, signaling the robotic controller to protect expensive tooling and product.
