Farmington, Conn. (Manufacturing.net) — Last week TRUMPF announced an enhancement to its LensLine sensor system for 2D laser cutting machines, which involves mating it with a radio frequency identification (RFID) lens for better accuracy, reliability and user-friendliness. The RFID chip records condition monitoring data and tracks when the lens needs to be cleaned, which helps operators optimize the cleaning cycle, cutting out time-consuming visual inspections or preventative maintenance. The company says this can cut cleaning times by up to 40 percent. Additional features include:

  • The ability to ensure that only lenses with the correct focal length are installed in the machine and in the correct orientation, which increases reliability.
  • Detection of thermal degradation, which causes the system to switch off the laser within a few milliseconds.
  • Faster and more accurate condition monitoring of dirt particles.
