Yaskawa Motoman Robotics offers two laser seam-tracking software packages for arc welding applications that use Servo-Robot's laser cameras. Both versions enable the company’s robots to track weld joints at high speeds and in real time, even while the parts are turning on a coordinated positioner. The software features adaptive capability to vary the weld conditions based on joint gap information from the sensor.
MotoEye™ LT features a high-speed Ethernet interface between the DX100 controller and Servo-Robot's RoboNet Master camera controller. MotoEye LT-HD has the same capabilities, plus the ability to weave and store root pass data for heavy weldments requiring multiple passes. The laser camera provides data on joint volume, and the user can control how the robot adapts weaving, welding parameters, and weld pass sequencing to fill a weld joint with variation in a uniform fashion.
