Reflecting on Fall 2018 Trade Shows

Posted by Magda Paszko on Thursday, November 15, 2018 @ 08:35 AM

The experience of a trade show is quite difficult to put into words; regardless of whether you are an exhibitor or an attendee, the level of energy, engagement, and excitement associated with a show is indescribable. Here at Xiris Automation, we are quite familiar with the trade show process, but this doesn’t make the events any less exciting. The last couple of months have been no exception as we traveled the world to meet customers and faced the hustle and bustle of EuroBLECH and FABTECH.

EuroBLECH

EuroBLECH is the largest trade exhibition for the sheet metal working industry and it is valued by top industry professionals from all over the world.[i] This year, the show ran from October 23rd to the 26th in Hanover, Germany and highlighted the theme of Stepping into the Digital Reality. The show attracted over 56,000 visitors from all around the world[ii] and gave us the opportunity to connect with clients from new regions. We showcased our weld cameras and weld inspection systems and were very impressed with the level in interest in the XVC 1000e welding camera.

This show also doubled as our first opportunity to introduce Michael Staiger to our European market. As business in Europe continues to grow, Michael joined our team as the new European Service Technician in order to better meet the needs of our customers. Based out of the Xiris Automation GmbH office just outside of Duesseldorf, Germany, Michael will be responsible for installation, calibration, and training for all new Xiris customers, as well as servicing and repair work of Xiris equipment across Europe. Not only was EuroBLECH the perfect opportunity to introduce Michael to our connections worldwide, but it also conveniently demonstrated the scope of our business.

FABTECH

About one week after coming back from Germany, we headed to Atlanta, Georgia for FABTECH 2018. FABTECH is North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event[iii] and our team was very excited to get in touch with our North American market. The show took place at the Georgia World Congress Center and was open to the public from November 6th to the 8th.

Xiris Booth at Fabtech 2018

This year, our booth was bigger and better than ever before as we showcased the capabilities of our HDR welding cameras through demo videos of numerous applications. We also had over 20 cameras on the floor with trusted industry partners including: Lincoln Electric, Hobart Brothers, Cloos Welding, Gullco, Abicor Binzel, Arcrite Automation and Bug-O, big thank you to those who participated! Seeing the cameras in action all around the show encouraged attendees to visit our team experts and ask their burning questions. If your company will be exhibiting at Fabtech 2019 or any other welding automation or fabrication show, and you feel you could benefit from displaying or operating a Xiris camera, please contact our sales team.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, it has been a very successful trade show season for Xiris Automation. It was a pleasure meeting everyone who had the chance to stop by one of our booths and we are looking forward to connecting with you further. If you did not have the opportunity to visit us, or if you have any further questions about our equipment, please feel free to check out our website or contact us. A lot of work goes into one of these shows, so we would like to send out a big thank you to everyone who made them possible, it is so satisfying to see all that hard work pay off. The preparation for these shows begins many months, sometimes even years, in advance, so it is time to sign off and start planning for the future. Until next time!

Xiris in Shanghai, Tube China 2018

Posted by Dean Zhao on Thursday, October 18, 2018 @ 10:30 AM

 

Just a couple of weeks ago, Xiris had the opportunity to showcase our Weld Inspection Systems at Tube China in Shanghai. This was a four-day trade show which ran from September 26th to the 29th. Tube China has grown into Asia’s most influential tube and pipe industry event and attracts tens of thousands of visitors to thousands of leading brands. As the show has grown over the years, it has been fascinating to see the visitor interest grow as well. Participants were significantly more informed about the various technologies and were asking insightful questions as a result.

The live demonstration of our laser-based 3D inspection system, the WI2000, resonated with many visitors as they could see it detect various quality issues on smaller diameter tubes. In collaboration with our Chinese distributor, Belwin Intelligent Technology Co, we are able to better accommodate our customers overseas.

If you have any questions about Xiris’ Weld Inspection Systems, or are trying to choose the right system for your process, please visit our website or contact us directly.

Weld Camera Success at Fabtech 2017!

Posted by Catherine Cline on Friday, November 24, 2017 @ 02:19 PM

Xiris recently attended the Fabtech trade show, held once again this year at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Being the largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event in North America, we were pleased to be an exhibitor! Not only did we have several hundred companies stop by our booth to see our weld camera system and learn how it could be integrated into their equipment or processes, we also had our cameras demonstrated in a variety of other exhibitors’ booths including: Miller Electric, Airgas/Red-D-Arc, Arc Specialties, WeldObot, Hyundai Welding and others.

In each case, the cameras displayed real time images of the welding process, showcasing the advantages of the exhibitor’s welding equipment.Cladding machines, orbital welding equipment and closed cell automated welding processes were all on display in real time.Miller Electric was featuring their manual weld equipment and various welding techniques they use when use with their equipment.

The use of Xiris cameras at tradeshows has grown exponentially as exhibitors believe it gives them a significant advantage over their competition in two ways. First, it demonstrates their ability to integrate vision into their equipment when required for operator safety and quality, and second, to showcase the finer features of the weld process and the benefits of using their equipment for specific applications.

If your company is exhibiting at Fabtech or any other welding automation or fabrication show, in 2018, and you feel you could benefit from displaying or operating a Xiris camera, please contact us here.

Successful Show in Shanghai for Xiris!

Posted by Dean Zhao on Monday, July 06, 2015 @ 09:46 AM

Xiris Automation Inc. exhibited the new XVC-1000 Weld View Camera in this year's Essen Welding Show in Shanghai. The show started June 16th and ended on June 19th, 2015 with an estimated 28,000 visitors from 60 different countries.  85% of these visitors were reported from China, and the remaining 15% were international visitors.

This year's show was another extremely busy show for Xiris, as the use of weld cameras is still new to China.  This allowed us an advantage within the fast paced Chinese market to establish many new relationships with both machine builders and end users alike.

We put one camera in Migatronic our partner’s booth demonstrating live welding images from our camera. The live display of the weld images inspired plenty of interest in our camera. There was an enormous turn-out and many discussions with potential customers.  With both new and repeat customers in attendance, our booth was constantly crowded with interested prospective clients.

 

 

 

This demand and fascination with our product was due to the unique qualities of the XVC-1000 in the industry.  It is a perfect solution for monitoring all welding processes, and perfect for welding professionals.  With small format size, high dynamic range capability and remote imaging, the XVC-1000 is a powerful addition to any welding process. In China, as elsewhere, System integrators and general fabricators are constantly fighting to differentiate themselves from the intense competition in the industry. The Xiris XVC-1000 could be the key. Our camera can provide superior image clarity to monitor the entire welding process including both the brightness of the welding arc and its darker background.

Success at Fabtech Atlanta for Xiris!

Posted by Leanne Sinclair on Monday, November 24, 2014 @ 12:06 PM

Fabtech is North America’s largest metal forming and fabricating event that occurs every year. Fabtech began in 1981 and had grown steadily since, this year alone the show featured over 27,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors. Xiris was very pleased to be one of these exhibitors, and was very excited to debut our new product, the Xiris XVC-1000 Weld Camera, at Fabtech in Atlanta, Georgia this past November 11-13th.

The Xiris booth featured two examples of the new camera system: one camera was installed on a laser beam delivery system that demonstrated how well the camera integrates into laser, plasma or electron beam welding machines; and the other camera was integrated to a high intensity LED light source that could demonstrate the ability to see a super bright object while able to image darker areas in its background, similar to an actual welding environment.

The Xiris booth was in Hall C, which focused on companies exhibiting equipment for the Welding and Tube & Pipe industries. There were numerous booths specializing in welding equipment, and Xiris had weld camera systems for both Open Arc and Submerged Arc Welding demonstrated in a variety of other booths including: Lincoln Electric, Gullco, Irco, LaserMech, LJ Welding/Praxair, Red-D-Arc/AirGas, and ESAB. This display of the weld cameras inspired plenty of interest in the product line that kept the Xiris sales team very busy during the show!

Xiris is proud to partner with so many prominent companies, and respond to so much interest during the show. Many welding machine builders and laser manufacturers saw great value in integrating the Xiris Weld Camera into their processes and machinery. With small format size, high dynamic range capability and remote imaging, the XVC-1000 is a powerful addition to any welding process.
