Completely automatic 3D repair welding
For heavy equipment such as soft coal excavators, it is often cheaper to repair parts than to replace them. For the repair of chain links during maintenance work, the worn material is welded on again by a robot. In order to automate this process, a 3D surface scan must be performed in advance so that the necessary welding lines can be calculated. The Mabotic company uses laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon for this.
