Xiris Partners with TPS WeldTech at Photonex

Posted by Leanne Sinclair on Monday, November 10, 2014 @ 02:00 PM

Xiris had the great opportunity to join TPS WeldTech at UK’s largest showcase event specializing in photonics and light technologies. Photonex was a large success, featuring an abundance of different light applications.

TPS WeldTech, distributor of Xiris’ XVC weld camera product line in the UK exhibited to promote the weld cameras. Xiris’ high dynamic range sensors used in the weld cameras provide a superior view of open arc welds making these cameras a unique product to exhibit at Photonex. The high dynamic range of the camera and high quality sensor was a rare and exciting promotion at this international exhibition.

The Processing & Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA) is one of the sponsors of Photonex and assists in partnering the photonics and light technologies industries with much larger industrial application groups. Xiris was asked to provide a presentation during the PPMA seminar session. Xiris’ Sales Manager, Cornelius Sawatzky provided a technical paper discussing the logarithmic sensor application used in weld cameras. Accompanied with video examples of various MIG/MAG, TIG and Laser welding operations the presentation provides excellent video demonstrations of the benefits of welding cameras in all environments, processes, and materials. These videos can also be found in the Xiris Resource Library on our website. Simply choose your welding process, materials used, power supply, and joint type and the Xiris Library will provide a crystal clear video example.

Xiris Presents at Pipe and Tube Houston

Posted by Leanne Sinclair on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 @ 04:23 PM

This past week, The Tube & Pipe Association (TPA) and the International Tube Association (ITA) coordinated the Pipe and Tube Houston 2014 Conference, where Xiris attended to present its WI2000p Weld Inspection System.  The WI2000p system is used to inspect welded tube and pipe immediately after the weld box for forming and weld defects with the goal of performing process control.  Xiris presented on the WI2000p and how it can detect certain defects found specifically in High Frequency and ERW welded tubing. The conference was attended by several hundred members of the tube and pipe community, as well as a variety of equipment vendors.

Xiris also demonstrated the Xiris WI2000p Post Weld Inspection System at the conference’s table top exhibits.  Using actual tube samples from a variety of customers, the WI2000p’s ability to detect a variety of tube weld and forming defects, such as bead height, bead ratio, slope angle, deflection, mismatch, roll, freeze line, scarf width, and undercut.  Detection of all these critical defects was demonstrated as to how the WI2000p can assist operators in controlling their process.  The net result is to help tube and pipe fabricators decrease scrap rates, increase productivity and improve quality of the end product.
