WELD GAP DETECTION

LASER SCANNERS​ TO MEASURE AND DETECT WELD SEAM GAPS

  • Take immediate action when a flaw or gap is detected
  • Check for tolerances such as width, seam shape, and volume and seam specific errors (undercuts and porosity).

Laser Scanning For Detecting Weld Gaps

The AccuProfile 820 2D laser scanner is mounted near the welding torch so that if a flaw is detected, operators can take immediate corrective action. 3D profile data is created by mating the 2D profile data with an encoder position. This encoder position is tracked directly by the scanner and included in the data stream.

Laser Scanning Weld Detection Data

Through a third-part vendor, Acuity supplies specialized software for inspection. The software compares the 3D profile data with the predetermined tolerance field levels and stores the results. The system can be configured with an alarm signal upon detection of a bad weld.

Lasers To Minimize Errors

Defective weld seam gaps are often the reason for leaks on pipelines and more issues. If a flaw is detected, make sure you can take immediate corrective action with laser line scanners.
