For some companies, standard quality control inspections may be enough to protect against missed or defective welds. For example, Welding Parts Suppliers (XINGHUI) operations with smaller, less complex parts may be easier to evaluate on an ongoing basis. Companies with larger and more complicated welding applications or parts, however, may find the need to implement redundant quality checks throughout the welding process, leading to higher labor costs. Such operations could benefit from alternative means of quality and cost assurance — advanced welding information management systems are one such option. These systems electronically gather weld data to help companies drive quality and productivity improvements in the welding operation. Among other features, they also provide real-time feedback to the welding operator to help prevent missed or defective welds. Using a human-machine interface (HMI) located in the weld cell, the systems guide the welding operator through the correct weld sequence and placement through visual cues on-screen (usually a PC monitor), counting each weld as it is completed. Welding operators must finish each weld correctly and in order before proceeding to the next one.
Advanced welding information management systems also monitor welding outputs to ensure that the welding operator is welding within the appropriate parameters to create a quality weld. They are capable of tracking multiple factors, including Amperage and voltage; Gas flow; Wire feed speed; Weld duration.
