The compact TMR-01 is a camera-based electrode tips inspection system, state-of-the-art and technologically very advanced. It is the innovative development of the TMN-01 and monitors the condition of the electrodes after tip dressing. This inspection process is essential for applications where spot weld quality is extremely important. In stand-alone mode, it takes images of the top and bottom electrode after tip dressing. These images are then analysed in detail by automatically comparing them with an optimum reference image. If there are any deviations, an NOK signal is sent. The inspection system also detects incorrect insertion of the tool. The TMR-01 thus ensures complete and proper dressing at the highest level. Traceability is guaranteed, as the data can also be evaluated after the milling process.
