The Orbitform Group (Jackson, MI) released what it is calling a breakthrough product for robotic spot welding: the Weld Tip System (WTS). WTS, which lets you increase your welding operations process intelligence and convert data into actionable information, inspects spot welding electrodes (tips) and ensures that face diameters and general appearance meet acceptance criteria.
Ensuring weld tip quality is one of the most critical factors in producing high quality, consistent spot welds. By incorporating state-of-the-art CURE technology (Concurrent Universal Recognition Engine memory processing architecture), WTS provides an effective and easy way to implement solutions. Welding engineers and business managers consider WTS a requirement for all spot welding cells, putting critical ROI information at their fingertips.
WTS offers cost savings and cost avoidance potential including decreases in downtime and labor associated with non-optimized processes and tip quality management.
For traceability and tip management purposes, WTS can store images of inspected tips.
