Laser Light Sensor

At the core of robot path correction

Previously, automation was not possible for many industrial processing tasks because component tolerances required individual processing of the object. The new generation of VMT robot path correction (BK) not only detects the work piece position, but continually detects the entire actual work piece contour. A convenient user interface enables the addition, removal, or moving of measurement points and coordinates are provided with offsets. The LineRunner 300 (LR300) laser light sensor, from Pepperl+Fuchs, is at the core of this solution, which replaces the labor-intensive sealing of the flanged seam on vehicle doors and hoods.  It moves along the component with the aid of a robot and detects the 3D position of the component contour at every robot path support point. With these coordinates, VMT BK corrects the entire robot path according to the contour profile. The result is an optimum robot path and application individually adapted to the work piece. The sensor uses Class 1 laser and thus requires no additional protective measures.
