During various welding processes faults can occur, like welding pores. The welding robot itself is unable to detect the faults.
Cold cracks, welding pores and burn-through generate characteristic patterns in the HFIM-depictions that are automatically detectable.
Here is a comparison between HFIM-depictions of two welding processes. One is flawless, the other shows welding pores.
Move the controller: The left side shows a HFIM-depiction of a welding process with welding pores. The right side shows a HFIM-depiction of a flawless process.
While the welding seams are made QASS Optimizer4D detects their condition automatically, in-process and in real-time.
