The intelliWELD II FT scan system is designed for the on-the-fly operation for which a handling device moves the scanner over the component to be welded while the welding task is executed simultaneously. The fast movements of the deflection mirrors increase the process speed and reduce the positioning time from welding seam to welding seam to a few milliseconds.

A welding figure can optionally be overlain with oscillation geometries to optimize the welding results when facing complex tasks. The intelliWELD II FT can be used flexibly with different spot diameters and seam widths and it therefore is especially qualified for overlap weldings.

Options and Expansions

Sensor Interfaces
  • Connection options (C-Mount) for third party sensor systems for process monitoring
  • Optionally with and without focus setpoint tracking
Zoom Axis
  • Widening of the laser spot up to 150 percent of the actual diameter
  • Flexible adaptation of the spot during the process at constant intensity distribution
Cover Slide Sensor
  • Early warning system to protect against contamination of the outside cover slide
  • Identifies deposits and weld penetrations and issues a warning message

Based on extensions, the intelliWELD II FT can be adapted to the process needs and the ambient conditions. The fully integrated sensor system provides the process-safe setpoint setting of the welding seam for optimal quality. The service life of the system can be increased significantly with the help of industry proven protection and maintenance elements.
