Modern laser processing requires continuous monitoring and feedback. Industrial video cameras are used to solve three types of tasks in this regard:
The video camera allows to monitor the processing in real time.
This function is useful when the processing takes place inside a closed cabin, or the operator's access to the processing area is hindered.
Using the macro lenses the operator can control the process under high magnification.
There are two methods of such referencing:
The video camera can function as a 2D-code and barcode scanner. This way is can automatically read the barcodes marked on the workpiece by the laser.
