A "guarantee" is a very strong statement, especially when it comes to controlling a welding process and cooresponding weld quality. The customer interaction below is a typical success story to the effectiveness of the ARCAgent solution designed to provide process control for manual and robotic welding applications. Although IMPACT would not directly make such a guarantee for obvious liability issues, the customer has concluded, in their own words below, that a qualified manual welder coupled with an ARCAgent system helps virtually eliminate quality control issues due to human or equipment error.

A prospective customer inquired if they could ask questions directly to an existing ARCAgent customer. Below you will find the complete dialog between the prospective customer and the active customer.

2010_02_03_122916.pngThe demands of the welding industry require constant diligence to improve productivity, quality, and lower cost. The achievement of these goals is the vested interest of many entities throughout the enterprise. However, in order to direct action that yields cost saving improvements, accurate real-time weld process information is paramount. Products exist that provide welding information. Solutions also exist that provide powerful, robust information which can be used to direct cost saving measures.

Method and Tool to 'AIDE' Arc Welding Operations

The goal of every organization is the continual improvement of its manufacturing processes. There is no exception for the arc welding industry.   As all agree, information is at the heart of continuous improvement.  Information is required to direct the very action necessary to improve processes or resolve problems.    Without information organizations employ random acts with unknown benefits.   This wastes valuable time and resources.
