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!

Xiris Expands to South America

Posted by Cameron Serles on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 02:08 PM

Xiris recently attended the FIMAQH trade fair in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Held every 2 years, FIMAQH is the premier exposition in Argentina for various manufacturing technologies and processes, including welding and cutting equipment.  Despite a challenging economic environment with the current Argentine government, the fair was very well attended. Local Argentine visitors as well as some international visitors from other countries in the region encompassed some of the 35,000 visitors. This year’s show demonstrated a particular emphasis on ship building, nuclear power generation, and oil and gas production.

Xiris attended the event as guests of Buenos Aires Welding (BAW), one of the largest distributors of welding and cutting equipment in South America.  Cameron Serles, President of Xiris, made the trip to visit the show, and meet with the principals of BAW.  As a result of the visit, BAW is now signed on as the exclusive distributor for Xiris welding products in Spanish speaking southern South American countries (including Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Peru).  A family owned company, BAW was founded 20 years ago by its President, Mr. Juan Carlos Ferrero, who runs the company with his sons Sergio and Diego
