Allied-Signal Aerospace Company wanted to eliminate destructive testing. To get approval, they conducted capability testing utilizing a WeldComputer Control. The study demonstrated that the capability of the tested material far exceeded the required 99.5% level and approval was granted to eliminate destructive testing. For details, read the study.
This report establishes that the resistance welding process, as controlled and monitored by WeldComputer’s equipment, is sufficiently reliable to allow the substitution of nondestructive evaluation for destructive testing.
JANDA built a flash welder for a company producing special bridge supports. During testing, they measured 1,500 amp surges on the power line caused by the machine. The challenge was that this power consumption was more than the power company would allow. Testing with a conventional SCR control resulted in the machine blowing the focuses […]
This manufacturer noticed increasing levels of variability and inconsistency with their welds. The company requested an onsite evaluation from WeldComputer to analyze the performance of its production operation, implement strategies, and provide recommendations to achieve the goals of improving weld consistency, reducing the incidence of problem welds, and reducing or eliminating destructive testing. For details, […]
Third-party, independent welding equipment manufacturer finds significant cost and energy savings by switching from SCR to the WeldComputer AC inverter wave synthesis control.
Munition and Firearms Manufacturer Pulls the Trigger on WeldView Portable Monitor, Proves Quality and Eliminates Destructive Testing
Remington’s resistance welding manufacturing engineers called WeldComputer to assess the quality of their welding machine. The WeldView Portable Monitor was utilized to record weld quality metrics for each weld. Without the monitor, the Remington team lacked the level of detail they needed for every weld and had relied on periodic destructive testing to measure weld […]
When performing resistance welding, electrode force impacts the size and strength of the welds produced. This force is controlled by differential cylinder pressure, meaning that monitoring this variable is another way to indirectly monitor the electrode force. This MIL-SPEC aluminum resistance welding manufacturer was seeing cracks in their welds and had been struggling with the […]
