HIGH DEFINITION VISION SYSTEM LaserVision
HOW IT WORKS
Dalcos exclusive vision system uses a high
resolution camera that identifies either the strip/panel edges, or the pre-cut
holes. The way it works is extremely simple for the operator, since all the
operation is 100% transparent for them, and the algorithm developed by Dalcos
software engineers takes care of the measuring and calibrating.
The picture and the position of the hole – or
of the strip edge – is compared with the theoretical position given by the DXF
drawing, and the differences are recorded. With 2 and up to 4 measurements the
software identifies the X,Y differences; even if the panel is positioned at an
angle, the Dalcos software will identify it and set the laser operations and
the directions of the two axis to the real position of the part, with an
accuracy of +/-0,1mm.
This technology allows Dalcos customers the
- 1. Processing long parts up to 14 meters long
With the accuracy
guaranteed by the vision system, long parts are processed in the easiest way.
- 2. Processing starting from coils and
from pre-cut sheets
With Dalcos LXN Vision, it’s just as easy to work from
sheets up to 14 meters long, and from continuous strip. In this way, the large
batches can be processed in an automatic and continuous way (coil feeding
enables up to 24 hours continuous production) and for the small batches, single
sheets can be introduced via the Dalcos roller table.
- 3. Working without any side guide and extremely fast setup
Since the Vision system will take care of the positioning of the laser cutting,
it is not necessary to adjust the guides precisely when changing coils or
introducing a new panel.
- 4. Working from coils coming directly from the steel mill
With the Dalcos LXN
1500 Vision, the width is set to 1550mm: in this way it is possible to purchase
steel directly from the steel mill without going through a service center with
an additional economic advantage.
- 5. Working from pre-punched panels
The Dalcos vision system enables Dalcos to punch panels in the punching
machine, complete with embossing and threading, and deliver them to the LXN
Vision laser cutting system. It’s the world’s first punching and laser cutting
- 6. Transforming ANY punching machine
into a punch/laser combo system with simultaneous processing
In the same way,
Dalcos LXN Vision can be installed right after any standard punching machine through
a simple roller bench, receive from it a pre-punched panel and process on it
all the required laser cutting. Any standard punching machine can be
transformed into a simultaneous punch/laser combo line.
