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.

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 Exhibits at IMTS 2014

Posted by Leanne Sinclair on Thursday, September 18, 2014 @ 05:10 PM

Xiris Automation participates in many international trade shows. Our products have immense value across a number of markets, including welding, where we present our XVC-O Weld Camera to the Weld industry. With video demonstrations and expert explanations about how our weld camera can improve weld monitoring, trade shows are hugely beneficial to customer understanding of this technology.

Partnering with one of our large OEMs, ESAB Welding & Cutting Products, Xiris was privileged to exhibit the XVC-O Weld Camera for Open Arc welding processes. ESAB was one of only two major welding automation companies exhibiting at the International Manufacturing Technology Show. IMTS is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and 114,140 registrants.

ESAB IMTS

ESAB showcased their pre-engineered robotic welding cell using a new tandem MIG welding process called Swift Arc LS. Xiris assisted with the ESAB exhibit by providing the Xiris XVC-O Weld Camera to demonstrate how the operator could view the welding process remotely. The weld camera was mounted on the robot and travelled with the weld torch to provide visitors a clear, live view of the weld arc. Xiris also demonstrated a live weld feed for visitors to see the software and dashboard view of the system (demonstrated above).

This is one of the many trade shows Xiris has attended this year, and will be attending many more! Watch for us at the Sheet Metal Welding Conference in Michigan, US, FabTech in Atlanta, Ga, US and the 5th Welding Busan Exhibition in Korea this November.

Successful Show in Beijing for Xiris!

Posted by Dean Zhao on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 @ 01:55 PM

Xiris Automation Inc. exhibited at the XVC-O Weld View Camera in this year's Beijing Essen Welding Show. The show started June 10th and ended on June 13th, 2014 with an estimated 25,000 visitors from 50 different countries attending the large venue.  Ninety percent of these visitors were reported from China, and the remaining 10% were international visitors

This year's show was a very unique opportunity for Xiris, as the use of weld cameras is 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.  The show was a late addition to Xiris' busy tradeshow schedule this 2014 season. Therefore our booth was not in our preferred location, but to our immense pleasure, this did not deter any interest in the Xiris XVC-O camera. There was an enormous turn-out and many discussions with potential customers.  With both new and repeat customers in attendance, the booth was constantly crowded with interested prospective clients.

This demand and fascination with our product was due to the unique qualities of the XVC-O in the industry.  It is a perfect solution for monitoring many different welding processes, and perfect for welding professionals.  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-O could be the key. Our camera can provide enough image clarity to monitor the entire welding process including both the brightness of the welding arc and its darker background.

Be sure to check out our website for full event details, and stay tuned for more updates on new products, sources, and pictures on all of our social media. We are now on Google+, as well as LinedIn and Twitter.

Since signing Harbin Jinlifeng Co. Ltd as our distributor for China in January this year, Xiris has established success in selling a few Xiris XVC-O weld camera systems to Chinese customers. To support our expanding business in China, Xiris will exhibit in the 2014 Beijing Essen Welding and Cutting Fair from June 10 – 13 alongside our local partner, Harbin Jinlifeng.

The Beijing Essen Welding and Cutting Fair is one of the world’s leading welding exhibitions, it is the largest and the most influential welding trade fair held in China each year.  In 2013 the fair had almost 25,000 visitors from over 50 countries, and over 1,000 exhibitors from 28 countries.  Anticipating an even bigger show this year, Xiris expects to be very busy!

Come visit us at Booth# E1710 in Hall E1 of the show, where we will be demonstrating the XVC-O weld camera for Open Arc welding, and the XVC-S weld camera for Submerged Arc welding. Using leading-edge technology our XVC-O weld camera has an extremely high dynamic range sensor, which allows the operator to see both the weld arc, and its surrounding background simultaneously.  Equipped with an HMI console and monitor, the XVC-O allows the operator to remotely view the weld information up to 40 m away. This means the operator can monitor, and record, the weld process for online or offline viewing.  The system is enclosed in a cooled, durable housing to allow the camera to work in extremely harsh environments.

We are looking forward to the show, and hope you will stop by to see what our weld cameras can do!

See you in Beijing!
