Welding Monitoring and Control(WMC) is especially designed for pipe mills and Lincoln Power Wave machines but it can also be applied to any other invertible welding machine.
Welding Monitoring and Control is basically a digitalization system to set, monitor and control welding parameters. WMC is especially designed for spiral mills and Lincoln Power Wave machines but it can also be applied to any other invertible welding machine.
For spiral pipe manufacturing applications; it is possible to digitalize all welding parameters for ID welding, OD welding and strip connection welding.
For ease of use; WMC has two cubicles near to ID welding and strip connection welding for operators to set and adjust welding parameters. During production, it is possible to interfere the production due to undesired changes on welding parameters.
In addition to that, there is one main control cubicle is used for overall control and monitoring of welding system.
One of the main advantages of WMC is it is possible to store production recipes and recall them from the database when needed.
Thus, set-up times will be shortened and there is a less chance for operators to mistype wrong parameters.
In order to reach a good welding quality, WMC allows you to set limits for each parameter.
When these limits are exceeded, WMC creates an alarm and visualize it.
