Smart Welding Solution

Use Case

Optimize welding quality and reliability with remote usage and location monitoring

The OEM industry is experiencing a significant shortage of skilled welders. Welding is traditionally characterized by low operational efficiency, as well as high maintenance and warranty costs. Yet welding is a critical technology for nearly 90% of all durable goods and heavy machinery production, as well as most construction projects. Manufacturers are seeking new ways to increase quality and efficiency while lowering costs.

Connected welding machinery helps resolve these problems by allowing remote monitoring of location, usage, predictive maintenance and skilled labor management. Real-time dashboards help plant and construction managers bring a new level of consistency, reliability and repeatability to weld quality, while optimizing defect and issue resolution. In addition, spare sales increases through planning and targeted distribution.

We have a solution

Track usage, location and maintenance of welding machinery with real-time monitoring dashboard.
