Weld-Information Systems Now Available on Miller Deltaweld Power SourcesJuly 25, 2023
Miller Electric Mfg. LLC has announced that Deltaweld welding power sources are now available with the Insight Centerpoint weld-information application, which provides manufacturers with utilization information to address critical challenges, from weld quality and productivity to rising costs or a lack of skilled welders. This enables uncovering of problems and tracking trends so that operations can make improvements, explain company officials.
Deltaweld 350 and Deltaweld 500 power sources with the Insight Centerpoint application can help solve these manufacturing challenges:
- Productivity issues. Insight Centerpoint measures each welder’s arc-on time, allowing operations to establish a productivity baseline, make plans for improvements and measure progress toward goals.
- Lack of skilled welders. A complex weld sequence can require a lot of training time, and if welders are training, they aren’t welding. Insight Centerpoint reduces training by guiding welders through the weld sequence in real-time.
- Poor quality. Out-of-parameter welds create rework if not captured early in the weld cell. The application provides early containment of defects and can control the weld operation by monitoring every parameter of every weld.
- Rising costs. Missed or defective welds that aren’t detected early cost more to fix. Insight Centerpoint alerts welders if a weld is missed or is outside of acceptable parameters, allowing it to be corrected cost effectively.
Two Insight Centerpoint modes are available on Deltaweld Systems with Intellx Elite wire feeders: basic mode and premium mode. Basic mode provides on-premises productivity and utilization information, with enterprise integration to a third-party IIoT system. Premium mode provides the ability to govern the weld sequence of the operator as well as non-welding activities to help produce parts repetitively to specification. Basic mode also is available on the Intellx Pro and Intellx Basic wire feeders.
