Pre-and Post-Process Vision Integration Enhance Laser Manufacturing Processes

Vision systems are increasingly incorporated into laser machine tools to inspect, identify and guide laser processes. In its simplest iteration, readers can retrieve data from product labels or documentation to obtain information relevant to the laser process. Data strings can confirm the identity of the part; specify the quantity of parts to process or designate the beginning/ending serial numbers. For more advanced implementation, vision systems can locate the part and determine its orientation to accurately position the process (marking.

Increasing demand for welding of transparent plastics leads to advances in laser welding technologies.

Medical device manufacturers often must use transparent plastics when the content of their products must be visible to the user. Devices such as micro fluidic components and bio scrub brushes are assembled from molded transparent parts for maximum visibility. Laser welding is replacing ultrasonic welding as the method of choice to permanently bond polymer parts into a finished assembly with a reliable, cost-effective solution. New, longer wavelength lasers eliminate the need for an.
