Why Electronic Gas Management is Poised to Improve the Cost of Welding Gas

Posted by Scott Huber on May 7, 2018 3:00:00 PM

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.

Gas Management System EWR 2: Frequently Asked Questions

Posted by Scott Huber on May 1, 2018 10:28:53 AM

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:

Optical Seam Tracking & Hard Automation

Posted by Scott Huber on May 18, 2017 11:23:00 AM

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.
