Companies using several welding robots are looking for more insights into and control over performance, the progress of the process, maintenance and welding data. This data is required to be able to tweak the process on time and to increase efficiency, but also to record the welding quality for each product. Valk Welding’s 2nd generation Management Information System (MIS 2.0) was developed for this purpose and provides this solution.
The most important reason why Valk Welding continued developing its Management Information System to a 2.0 version is the strong increase in the number of clients with multiple welding robots. Those clients have created an increased need for more information on production performance.
- When and for how long is a robot idle?
- What is the reason for it being idle?
- What is the exact duty cycle of the robot?
- Do cycle times match the time study?
- How to collect and record welding data?
All this represents information that is used by production leadership for control and management.
The ability to collect and record all welding data provides a solution when it comes to product liability.
