Next Stage of OCT for Remote Laser Welding
December 18, 2017
As the technology leader for intelligent laser welding solutions, Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH is participating in a research project that intensively explores optical coherence tomography's potential for remote laser welding in auto manufacturing. The Technical University of Munich's Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb), together with multiple industrial partners such as BMW and OCT sensor maker Precitec, are investigating innovative technology for more flexibility in body construction, particularly electro mobility. Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research sponsors the project under the ‘Photonics Research Germany’ research incentive program.
