Burlington, Ontario, Canada. – Xiris Automation Inc is pleased to announce that it has released its latest version of its XVC-O View Camera for steel Tube & Pipe fabricators to allow them to monitor their TIG or Laser Welding Processes. The system includes a camera that is capable of High Dynamic Range image capture so as to simultaneously see all features of the TIG torch tip or Laser weld arc, its surrounding environment and its position relative to the Tube 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's optics generate 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.
