With increased emphasis on accountability and traceability of resistance welding processes comes the need for process monitoring and enhanced process control. To compliment the Miyachi range of resistance welding equipment AMADA MIYACHI EUROPE offer a range of Weld Monitors to suit most applications and close the quality loop on your process.
Weld Monitoring offers the tools required for process development, production monitoring, data collection and analysis to support your quality system requirements.
Our four parameters for monitoring:
1. Welding current
2. Welding voltage
3. Electrode penetration
4. Electrode force
For many relatively simple processes, for example the welding of ferrous metals, control of absolute limit values for current and voltage suffices completely. For critical bonds, for example certain bonds of copper alloys, however, increased monitoring is necessary. In this case, too, the four parameters named above are monitored, not only within fixed limits, but, for example, also within envelope waveforms.
Weld Monitoring Benefits
AMADA MIYACHI EUROPE offers a variety of weld monitoring devices with differing benefits. Some devices are compact handheld units which make the user independent from power and PC hardware. Some devices are reliable and robust units which offer to store and to transfer data conveniently. The high-end versions are equipped with a one-button toggle wheel handling concept and have sophisticated and intuitive multilingual software.
