Advanced Real-Time Process Control

Part Tracking™: visually and sequentially guides operator through weld process; monitors each weld for current, voltage, wire-feed speed, duration and gas flow (optional)
   X
WorkFlow™: flexible system that governs the entire welding and fabrication process by providing visual non-welding work instructions in addition to the benefits of Part Tracking
   X
Codes and Standards: captures required information relating actual welding parameters to the specific operator, contract, joint and weld pass to ensure productivity and quality requirements are met    X
Monitors pulse width/frequency, short circuit frequency, peak/background current/voltage
   X
Energy/heat input calculation for total welded/assembled parts
   X
Real-time operator alerts of activities such as over-/under-welding, missing/incomplete welds and sequencing errors; provides sequential weld guidance for the operator
