The high-resolution, compact MM-L300A from Amada Weld Tech Click image to enlargeThe high-resolution, compact MM-L300A from Amada Weld Tech detects production errors such as gaps between parts, missing parts, over-penetration, incorrect focus and cover gas absence.

The compact, lightweight unit supports laser welding technologies for spot or seam welds, providing operators feedback on resultant laser weld quality.

Ideal for both process development and quality control for production laser welding applications, the MM-L300A determines weld success by detecting and recording a thermal signal from the area of laser interaction and providing an output waveform to set limits (max/min or envelope).  

Once the limits are determined, the unit compares a new weld waveform in real time to identify a good or bad weld. Providing high temporal resolution—down to 1 microsecond—the MM-L300A, with the SU-N300A dedicated thermal sensor, enables precision monitoring of both continuous wave and pulsed laser processes.

The MM-L300A features easy-to-use software for simple sensor configuration, waveform envelope limit set-up, and real-time or saved waveform analysis on Windows PCs. Additionally, machine-selectable setup schedules enable the unit to monitor different welding conditions. The compact, 7 lb (3 kg) unit reduces set-up space when integrated into a production line or used in a laboratory environment. The sensor can be mounted either on the optical axis or in an off-axis position.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.

Hydraulics vs. Electrics: Selecting the Right Press Brake

by Mary Scianna

If the press brakes in your fabrication shop are more than a decade old - not uncommon given the solid construction of most press brakes - and you're in the market for new replacement equipment, you may be surprised by the technological developments on today's press brakes.

Nikon Metrology: Anti-mould microscope design

Nikon Metrology Inc.'s latest stereoscopic microscope, the SMZ-745, is an airtight, anti-electrostatic and anti-mould designed microscope that prevents samples from being damaged by electrostatic discharge, as well as contaminants such as dust and water.

Maintaining your MIG gun and welding costs, by Grant Peppers

Selecting the right MIG gun for your welding application, and maintaining it properly, is just as important to your overall productivity as any other part of the welding operation.
