Xiris Attends CanWeld 2016

Posted by Catherine Cline on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 @ 09:14 AM

Xiris had the pleasure of co-exhibiting with Maverick Testing and TIP TIG USA at the CanWeld Tradeshow and Conference, held at the Expo Centre in Edmonton Alberta, Oct. 5-6, 2016.   The conference was well attended and drew from a wide range of industry, including mining, oil and gas, pipelines, power generation, petrochemical, fabrication and construction, manufacturing, steel and shipbuilding and pulp and paper.  Educators were also out in full force including attendees from Red Deer College, Thompson River University, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).   All were very enthusiastic about the Xiris weld videos on display at the booth citing the unbelievable image clarity Xiris is able to achieve with its high dynamic range weld cameras.Blog_Oct_12_Image_1.jpg

Maverick Testing, with locations in La Porte, Texas and Corpus Christi, Texas, is a full spectrum, state-of-the-art testing laboratory providing a comprehensive range of metallurgical and mechanical testing services as well as Welding Procedure Specification development.  Maverick was exhibiting its welder test coupons which are used in house for its Welding Process Qualifications but are also available to be purchased and shipped to other facilities or jobsites.  Visit coupons@mavtechinc.com

TIP TIG offers a very unique hotwire GTAW welding process that uses patented wire feed technology to provide the highest quality, highest deposition rates with the lowest possible heat input values, while consistently delivering the greatest metallurgical results on all alloys.  The process has also been proven to provide the lowest possible hexavalent chrome weld fume emissions which have been measured as “undetectable”.  The TIP TIG technology can be used successfully on a number of alloys including; Carbon, Duplex and Super Duplex Stainless Steels, Inconel, Stellite, Titanium, Aluminum, Hastelloy and many others.  Visit www.tiptigusa.com for more information.

Xiris was also fortunate to be able to integrate our cameras into the orbital welding system at the Lincoln Electric booth.   The welders were extremely impressed by the camera system and found it far easier to weld looking at a clear picture on the computer screen versus the view through a weld helmet!

Next, Xiris looks forward to Fabtech 2016 in Las Vegas, November 16-18 where both Lincoln and TIP TIG (as well as many others) will be welding with Xiris Cameras.  Check future blogs for details.  We look forward to seeing you there!
