Automotive Welding Tip Inspection

Challenge

In automated welding situations, it's important to maintain the overall quality of the welders to check for worn, improperly milled or missing welding caps.

If a welding tip fails inspection, a maintenance signal is sent to the process controller, and the welding operation halts.

Solution

The R55F high color resolution sensor checks whether the tips on a welder are within specifications, so the part being manufactured also is within specifications.

In this harsh environment, the color contrast sensor uses glass fibers, for enhanced durability and heat resistance.
