Temperature Measuring System - E-MAqS

Further components for process monitoring are available for process safety and quality control. In this context, various camera systems can be used (e.g. E-MAqS camera).

It is also possible to observe, and, if necessary, to record the complete process from above through the powder nozzle via the E-MAqS camera. Via the parameter settings in the user Software Lompoc Pro, the welding process can be specifically influenced. The camera thereby records the size and temperature of the melt pool. If the preset target value of the melt pool deviates from the actual size, this can be regulated by adjustment of the laser power or of the feed rate speed.
