Gas delivery and gas management is inefficient and in need of some innovation. Looking at the landscape of gas delivery and gas management optimization, there’s very little invested or innovated in the actual deliverance of gas from supply tank through the control device and out the welding nozzle.
When version one of the Electronic Welding Regulator EWR was released, we received a lot of questions about it's performance and how exactly it works to control the flow of shielding gas.
Now with version 2.0 of the EWR out - the EWR 2 / EWR 2 Net - we wanted to answer some of the frequently asked questions we received on the original EWR and update it for the next generation of gas management:
Hard automation in the past has always been about joystick controllers and a birdsnest operator controlling the movement of the gantry or positioning system to guide the welding arc through the weld piece. And incoporating seam tracking into this solution? Leave that to the robots.
Today, however, optical seam tracking is finding itself now more than ever a real solution and added value to those hard automation processes, and leading old-school, analog welding operations to look at seam tracking technology in a different light.
