MACHINE VISION CONTROL SOLUTION
Large area laser process monitoring and MOTF processing
While On-Axis process monitoring offers many benefits, for some application scenarios the classic Off-Axis integration of industrial cameras is still appropriate. When parts shall be processed during constant conveyance, e.g. on a belt, Off-Axis cameras allow the early localization of the part and its speed in order to start and adapt the laser process accordingly. This scenario is also referred to as Marking-and-processing-On-The-Fly (MOTF).
Furthermore, at large processing fields, where precision requirements are less critical, this approach to utilize modern Machine Vision technology is the right choice for the optimization of laser processes and assurance of high product quality.
