According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, welders and cutters "have one of the highest rates of injuries of all occupations." 
Before installing a weld camera, welders are often perched at unsafe heights, giving them a poor view of their welding activities.
Welders Work in Precarious Positions
Many welding activities are done at unsafe heights, while the welder attempts to monitor and control the welding process. The moving machinery around them forces them to work in small, constrained working areas- which is often dangerous and uncomfortable for the operator. In these conditions- behind a helmet and perched above the welding process- welders miss important details in the welding arc, which can lead to mistakes and inaccuracies that are costly and timely to fix. Not only are these conditions a safety risk, but they make it harder for welders to ensure that they execute a high quality weld.
Weld Cameras Give Welders an Eye Into Detail
Xiris Automation weld cameras enable workers to perform a weld without leaving the ground. Our solutions give welders a consistent image quality regardless of the angle of the weld. They can view multiple images of the weld from leading, trailing or side views of the weld process.
