Xiris Automation Inc. is pleased to announce that it will display its new Tube and Pipe Weld Monitoring System at the upcoming Tube Duesseldorf fair, stand 06-6J09, April 4-8, 2016 at Messe Duesseldorf, Germany.  

2016-02-29 193045

The Weld Monitoring System allows Tube & Pipe fabricators to remotely monitor their live TIG, Plasma or Laser Welding Processes.  The system includes a High Dynamic Range camera that is able to simultaneously see all features of the torch tip and/or weld arc, its surrounding environment and its position relative to the Tube/Pipe weld seam.  Benefits for the fabricator include increased productivity through reduced set up and adjustment time; improved health and safety conditions for the operator; and better weld quality through improved monitoring of the seam alignment and the weld process quality.

The system comes with and optics kit that allows for visibility into a small area.  The result is a small enough Field of View to provide High Resolution images of the weld pool detail as the weld arc cuts the parent tube material and the material subsequently solidifies.  Operators are able to clearly see if defects such as dross or porosity develop as the weld pool solidifies and monitor the condition of the weld tip, shielding gas and material fit up.  For more information, please visit www.xiris.com..

Xiris Automation Inc. is pleased to announce that it will release and display its new WI-3000 Weld Inspection System for Large Pipes at the upcoming Tube Duesseldorf fair, Booth 06-6J09, to be held April 4-8, 2016 at Messe Duesseldorf, Germany.  

2016-02-29 192744The new WI-3000 laser based Inspection system has been exclusively created for larger and heavier wall pipes.  Employing an all new redesigned sensor head with high resolution, high quality optics, the system is the larger version of our popular WI-2000 inspection system used on smaller tubes.  

The new system has a field of view that ranges from 35-100 mm across depending on the Model type, allowing for detection of a variety of defect types.  Typically installed right after the weld head on pipe mills, the WI3000 Inspection System can provide an early warning system to detect defects in the weld area and the forming of the pipe.  

With a measurement resolution down to 30 µm in size, the system is able to detect critical defects that are difficult to detect using other forms of testing equipment, such as fit-up (mismatch), raised/ sunken welds, deflection and freeze line defects.

The system includes a complete data collection and data management system that provides fault and trend reporting for historical auditing purposes, as well as off-line data review capability for complete batch production of large pipes.

New Industrialized Weld Camera

To View All Open Arc Welding Processes

Xiris Automation Inc. is pleased to announce that it has released its new XVC-1000e Weld Camera

2015-12-07 091128The new XVC-1000e camera is the ruggedized version of our popular XVC-1000 weld camera, a High Dynamic Range camera capable of capturing images of open arc welds so as to simultaneously see all features of the weld arc, its surrounding environment and its position relative to the weld seam.

The new camera comes loaded with features, including: integrated solid state lighting, motorized focus, replaceable front window all in a rugged, IP67 rated housing that can be cooled with air or liquid. Using the XVC-1000e camera, operators are able to remotely monitor the quality of their welding processes and make adjustments as necessary on the fly up to 100 m (330’) away.

The XVC-1000e camera is intended for implementation on a variety welding processes, providing productivity benefits including faster set up times, increased weld on times, better process troubleshooting and off line quality auditing and review. Videos can be recorded to disk for off-line retrieval and quality analysis.

The combination of powerful welding specific features such as image triggering, general purpose I/O, image windowing capability and a weld arc photodetector with a full suite of welding-specific imaging software tools, provides unprecedented image quality of a variety of welding and laser processes.
