    The laser welding process puts high demands on the manipulator that moves a focussed laser beam over the seam to be joined. Typically an accuracy of 0.1 mm is required at speeds beyond 100 mm/s. In many practical cases the accuracy of standard industrial robots is insufficient for laser welding, e.g. due to elastic vibrations of the robot arm. In this paper an autonomous system is described that improves the seam tracking accuracy by combining a seam sensor and a scanning mirror that are both mounted at the tip of the industrial robot.
