TACHYON 1024 microCamera

Compact uncooled MWIR camera, IP-67 rated, with industrial M12 USB connector and frame rate up to 1000 images per second. TACHYON 1024 microCamera is miniaturized size, based in SWaP-C concept to ensure a perfect integration into the production process.

The performance achieved with the high-speed infrared cameras from New Infrared Technologies allow the real-time monitoring of laser welding processes. The mechanical couple of the compact uncooled MWIR camera directly to the laser head makes possible to observe on-axis the melt-pool area, as well as the dynamical behavior of the process.An analysis of such images provide real-time defect detection capabilities, such as: lack of penetration, false friends, holes or pores, among others. The technology is valid for CO2, Nd:YAG, diode and Yb:YAG lasers.

The Compact uncooled MWIR from NIT allow a direct integration into the welding head and therefore a direct observation of the melt-pool area with a very high temporal accuracy while the process is being performed. This allows the complete recording of all the information associated to the welding defects. As the technology is based in uncooled sensors, the deployments costs are lower compared to other laser welding process monitoring systems, making the technology suitable for the Industry 4.0 and zero-defect quality standards, and allowing a process optimization.

Optimized size and affordable cost to ensure a perfect integration in the production process: priced for cost sensitive machine vision applications!
