Rockford Systems offers finger sensing probe

Rockford Detect a Finger

Rockford Systems LLC’s Detect-A-Finger drop-probe device prevents welders and other small machines from cycling if it encounters fingers in the point-of-operation area. When an operator initiates a machine cycle, the sensing probe is released, ensuring that safeguarding cannot be deactivated or overlooked. If the probe detects more than the expected material thickness, it halts the… Continued

Victor offers field-repairable torch

Walter’s weld cleaning system

Walter Surface Technologies Inc. launched the Surfox 205 and Surfox Mini TIG and spot weld cleaning systems. The Surfox 205 uses an electrochemical process to clean and passivate spot and TIG welds on stainless steel, aluminum and titanium. The machine replaces manual operations, such as mechanical abrasion or hazardous solutions like pickling paste. The Surfox… Continued

American Weldquip introduces cool grip torch

Weldquip Cool Grip

American Weldquip’s new Cool-Grip semi-automatic MIG welding torch increases welder comfort levels by providing relief from high temperatures in the handle when welding in higher heat applications. This allows for cooler operation by inhibiting the transfer of heat that is generated at the welding arc and pulled back into the handle area by way of… Continued

Scanlab’s scan head for laser cutting and welding

scanlab

Scanlab GmbH developed WelDyna, a scan head for oscillating laser beam cutting and welding. Considerable process benefits are gained by welding and cutting with high-frequency beam oscillation, particularly in macro material processing of larger components. For example, thick metal sheets and fiber-reinforced plastics can be cut more quickly and cleanly. Designed for multi-kilowatt lasers of… Continued

Hexagon releases software for robot calibration

Hexagon

Hexagon Mfg. Intelligence’s new RoboDyn software package works in conjunction with a Leica Absolute Tracker to allow for the direct calculation of robot characteristics, such as base and tool alignments and full DH parameters. The software’s calibration module provides a fast and intuitive process for aligning the robot with the laser tracker and then calibrating the robot’s kinematic… Continued
