System images welding processes for improved control

OCTOBER 16, 2009--The WeldWorks Software Suite now features vision capabilities to improve small-scale resistance welding, hot bar reflow soldering, and micro-laser welding processes.

OCTOBER 16, 2009--The WeldWorks Software Suite now features vision capabilities to improve small-scale resistance welding, hot bar reflow soldering, and micro-laser welding processes. The vision kit includes a gas shock articulating arm to position the USB color camera, zoom lens, and integrated LED light to the desired position. The system displays a large live video image within the WeldWorks application, making it easier to see small features compared to using a boom microscope. The kit automatically captures preweld and post-weld images and allows the user to snap additional images in the event of weld failure. Optional Cognex VisionPro software is available for advanced gauging applications.

PRESS RELEASE

WeldWorks Vision Kit Captures Critical Weld Information

techMatrix, LLC of St. Paul, MN adds vision capabilities to its WeldWorks Software Suite. It's been said that "a picture is worth a thousand words" and nowhere could that be more true than in performing small scale resistance welding, hot bar reflow soldering, and micro-laser welding.

The vision kit includes a gas shock articulating arm to easily position the USB color camera, zoom lens, and integrated LED light to the desired position. The system displays a large live video image within the WeldWorks application - making it much easier for the operator to see small features compared to using a boom microscope. The kit automatically captures pre-weld and post-weld images and allows the user to snap additional images in the event of weld failure. The pictures, weld data, waveforms, and part information are all stored in a central database. Optional Cognex VisionPro software is available for advanced gauging applications.

WeldWorks makes data retrieval and statistical analysis easy with its intuitive web interface. The vision kit also allows one to upload destructive test images from any source, providing users with a complete view of their weld process.
