Complete control over your welding robot systems with MIS 2.0

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.

MIS 2.0

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.

Real-time data from the server

Monitoring, data analysis, traceability and data logging are all possible because data is transferred on from the robot controller to the central server in real time. MIS 2.0 visualises this information in the form of graphs and tables. As client requirements differ strongly, Valk Welding developed a system based on widgets that enable the clients to create their own dashboards, specifically focused on what they need to share and with whom, within their organisation

Monitoring

A dashboard with a complete overview of daily, weekly, monthly or annual totals for all systems of number of hours of: duty cycle, welding hours, number of programmes processed, welding-wire consumption, etc...

Robot Analysis

  • A complete and current overview of the key performance indicators for every individual welding-robot system.
  • A detailed overview per period.
  • Daily insight into the log data, including all errors.
  • Detailed analysis options.

Product traceability

All data from the server can be retrieved at product level over a specific period.

  • This data can be used to check the product quality before it moves on to the next step in the production process.
  • A data log is recorded for every product.
    The data log contains a series of welding data in chronological order.

Service management

MIS 2.0 will be able to provide information for the benefit of preventive maintenance to ensure critical parts are replaced on time. For example, the amount of pressure on every robot axis to show which axis requires preventive maintenance. This information is available in the database, developed on the required dashboards.
