The following is an actual trip report documenting an actual consultation with one of WeldComputer Corporation’s customers. Names and addresses have been changed or removed for privacy purposes.
Within the scope of a one day consultation, WeldComputer Corporation 1) provided ABC with a short course on the physics of resistance welding, 2) used a WeldView® Monitor to identify problems with the machine and the process, 3) provided recommendations that enabled ABC to immediately correct those problems, 4) used the monitor to establish more robust weld schedule settings that allowed the operation to produce consistent high quality welds and 5) demonstrated how to set upper and lower monitor limits to non-destructively evaluate the integrity of every production weld.
Within the scope of a one day consultation, WeldComputer Corporation 1) provided AWC with a review of recommended machine setup procedures, 2) used a WeldView® Monitor to identify two separate problems with the machine that were responsible for causing weld failures, 3) provided specific recommendations that AWC can implement on its own to correct those problems, 4) demonstrated how to use the monitor to rapidly establish robust weld schedule settings to produce more consistent higher quality welds and 5) demonstrated how to set upper and lower monitor limits to non-destructively evaluate the integrity of every production weld.
