Stud welding equipment.


IMAGE INDUSTRIES INC., HUNTLEY, ILL. The company's new line of digital arc stud welding equipment, called Smart Weld, has advanced data management for statistical process control (SPC) documentation. Smart Weld's documentation feature serves as a reinforcement tool for maintaining quality control measures. By reporting information, such as date and time, weld tool used (1 through 4 option), mode used, weld parameters requested (time and current), and actual weld results (time, current, and voltage), users can determine whether quality standards are being consistently upheld with every weld. SPC limits can also be entered and reported by Smart Weld. Users determine optimal weld settings, and then enter upper and lower SPC limits, which are based on real world variations. If the weld falls outside of these programmed limits, the Quality Control Documentation feature alerts the user with an error message. Once the weld is complete, the user has the option to print out a documented report of the weld parameters and evaluate the effectiveness of the weld. or circle 62
