Imaging of automated welding
I3DR has long recognised the important role stereo vision has to play in furthering the mass adoption of AM. To this end, our systems are developed with an eye on the future.
Our systems producing 2D and 3D representations of objects and scenes, and in addition, we offer a platform for the fusion of data from multiple sensors to form an awareness map.
i3D robotics has been working with The University of Sheffield on a new intelligent vision system for a new welding system targeted initially at the aerospace industry. Our vision systems are able to provide real-time visual information and feedback to enable intelligent control for an automated arc welding system. Through using this information, the welding process may be controlled by adjusting parameters such as arc intensity, distance, and speed to provide full automation that will move the technology towards true replication of manual welding with 24/7 operation in any environment
