Cyclomatic Tactile Seam Trackers

Maintaining a consistent position of the torch over the weld joint is absolutely critical for automated welding. Tactile seam tracking employs an electromechanical probe that is mounted ahead of the torch. The probe has a tip that rides in the weld joint and when deflected causes the motorized slides to respond vertically or horizontally. The tactile seam tracker can be used to initially find the weld joint, then track the joint while welding, and retract the torch up and away from the part at weld completion.

  • Standard and programmable models are available, depending on the joint configuration and the level of automation required
  • Systems are supplied ready to bolt on to existing welding system
  • System components include:
    • Standard 9660S or Programmable 9660P microprocessor control unit
