WiKi-SCAN Unique Handheld Wireless Weld Inspection System
Servo-Robot Inc. Posted 05/08/2012SERVO-ROBOT has launched WiKi-SCAN, a unique handheld laser-based welding inspection system. To inspect the part, the inspector simply holds the system up to the unwelded or welded joint and presses the trigger to take measurements and determine if there are any defects present. The WiKi-SCAN allows to inspect joint preparations, joint fit-up, weld bead profiles and weld defects. It accurately measures critical parameters such as face and root openings or gaps, mismatch and bevel angle. Results can be automatically compared to the tolerances 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 your computer. Advantages of the WiKi-SCAN include less redundant inspection, fewer unneeded repairs, reduced inspection time and cost saving.
