A new Internet-based industrial welding information management system from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. provides real-time data from the weld cell. Insight Core™ automatically collects and reports arc-on time, arc starts, and quality performance based on amperage and voltage.
The system is available in two configurations: one for the Miller® Axcess® family and one for Miller 14-pin-compliant power sources. A field-installed retrofit module is designed for the manufacturer's power sources already in use.
With the system, manufacturers can assess welding productivity and quality in real time from anywhere via the Internet. A preconfigured dashboard reports a daily summary of key performance metrics. Manufacturers can use the dashboard to monitor total arc-on-time percentage; get real-time visibility of welds outside of predetermined threshold limits for amperage and voltage; and set goals to raise the bar on corporate welding performance.
