Meta Vision Systems
Meta's work in aerospace started in the late 1980s when we designed and built a complete robot welding cell for Ariane rocket nozzles. Today we are still involved in the aerospace industry and still involved in welding rocket nozzles!
The auto industry is a huge user of robots, and so also a large user of weld tracking and inspection systems.
Meta's DLS scanning spot laser sensor provides a unique technology for the large weld joints often found in the energy sector
Meta sensors are widely used in the transport sector for making planes and boats and trains.
Meta started with laser sensors for robot welding and it has been an important application throughout the company's history.
Tube & Pipe
As the world-leading supplier of laser seam tracking systems for tube and pipe mills, Meta has substantial experience of Tube and Pipe Mill environments.
Whether it is manufacturing air, water, fuel or other tanks, Meta has wide experience of the application of laser vision in the tank industry.
Thanks to our thirty years experience with welding applications, we have a wide ranging knowledge of welding and fabrication processes.
Submerged Arc Welding
Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is one of the most widely used welding processes, especially in heavy industry.
GMAW is the archetypal open arc welding process, widely used in manufacturing industry.
GTAW is considered to be a high quality, precision welding process, commonly used for aerospace applications.
Laser & Hybrid
Laser and laser hybrid welding are high speed welding processes, used in the auto industry, requiring very precise control.
FSW (Friction Stir Welding) is a relatively new process, invented at TWI in 1991. Meta's SLS is well suited to the application.
Meta's Smart Laser Pilot (SLPi) is a well proven system for robot welding, with many unique features.
Meta's Smart Laser Probe (SLPr) is an SLS-based tracking system for welding machines, typically controlling a pair of linear slides
VistaWeld is Meta's flagship customisable system for machine welding, and is the market leader for applications in pipe mills and multipass welding
Meta has a range of camera systems for different applications.
