Reduce & Eliminate Weld Defects with Bluewrist

Trusted Automated Inspection Solution for Safety Critical Welds

Bluewrist 3D laser welding inspection solution is in use for the quality assurance of welds on high performance electric vehicle battery trays, truck frames and body-in-white roof brazing joints.

 

Our non-contact and non-destructive (NDT) automated welding inspection solution improves quality control process by eliminating manual weld inspection that are prone to inspector error and subjectivity. Achieve 100% accuracy and consistency in your fabrication process by comparing weld characteristics against a predetermined quality standards intended for use in each unique industry or application.

Still performing manual welding inspection?

Missed weld defects can lead to catastrophic failures and expensive recalls.

Products complex to simple often relies on weld to provide structural integrity. Ensuring good weld quality is critical for product safety and longevity and missed defects caused by weld inspector can have wide ranging consequences from life-changing injuries to steep legal repercussions. Eliminate these risks from your welding and manufacturing operations with 3D vision automated inspection.

Take the Guesswork out of Rework

with Defect Visualization

When weld defect is detected, the part is automatically rejected from the production line for rework and analysis without operator intervention. The actual location of the defect is indicated on the part CAD model to aid in accurate and efficient rework.

Total Inspection and Full Traceability

All weld inspection data and images can be saved for future reporting, record keeping and review purposes as part of a comprehensive quality assurance program.

For traceability, information such as a unique number for each weld, part serial number and cycle time information are all recorded in the database.

Manual vs Automated Weld Inspection – The Choice is Clear!

Don’t leave welding inspection to chance.

Modern manufacturing joining process requires hundreds of weld features or centimeters of continuous weld to guarantee final product quality. Manual visual inspection using gauges is insufficient and greatly increases the risks of passing defective weld downstream. Undetected, these defects can lead to catastrophic product failures or expense product recalls.
