To inspect the part, the inspector simply holds the system up to the un-welded or welded joint and presses the trigger to take measurements and determine if there are any defects present. The WiKi-SCAN enables the operator to inspect joint preparations, joint fit-up, and weld bead geometry. It accurately measures critical parameters such as face and root openings, mismatch and bevel angles for un-welded joints and features like leg size, concavity, undercut, etc. for welds.
Results can be automatically compared to the tolerance set and provide GO/NO-GO feedback. Furthermore, a permanent record of the weld measurements, voice and written comments and pictures of the weld are stored in the WiKi-SCAN and can be sent to a computer. Advantages of the WiKi-SCAN include less redundant inspection, fewer un-needed repairs, reduced inspection time and cost savings due to reduced weld time and over welding.
SERVO-ROBOT's WiKi-SCAN offers the following benefits:
- Speed up the inspection process. Eliminate subjective measurements.
- Reduce scrap by detecting a bad joint fit-up prior to welding.
- Reduce overwelding.
- Verify if welds/repairs are done correctly.
- Provide permanent documentation.
