Various welding tasks in steel constructions currently have a low degree of automation, which results in a high amount of manual work and employee-dependent quality levels. Within the framework of the 3dStahl collaborative project, a 6-axis robot, equipped with a welding machine, was attached upside down to a wire rope hoist kinematics system in order to automate the assembly processes. The infrared camera detects the change in emissivity and intensity distribution of the infrared radiation emitted by the resulting weld. The intensity is the specific radiation in W / m², i.e. the power radiated by the measuring object per zone.
