Adjusting the cutting angle in real time
To cut perfect bevels to plates, the distance between the cutting torch and the work piece must be very precise. Due to the heat input during the cutting process the work piece can deform. The KRANENDONK dual laser height control system measures the height deformation and corrects the robot path during cutting. In this way, the cutting torch will stay at the optimal cutting height. The laser system is designed to automatically cut various angles for plate beveling.
During production the system will be exposed to the cutting process. The housing and glasses are specifically designed for durability and provide protection against pollution and spatter in the harsh cutting conditions.
