AccuFast II Laser-Based Seam Finder Improves Weld Quality, Reduces Cycle Times

AccuFast II utilizes a non-contact, commercial point laser instead of "touch" sensing with the weld wire, which allows the robot to quickly and accurately locate welding seams. It greatly reduces cycle times not only by removing the need to cut the weld wire, but it also provides faster search speeds by eliminating wire deflection.
