Control of welding parameters with eddy current


: Dear colleagues,

We have a welder(MIG/MAG/TIG) robot(in Amirkabir university of thechnology-IRAN-TEHRAN) and we would like to control it with eddy current response.
Therfore we would like to make an overview of manner "automatic welding with on-line inspection
of eddy current" so that The operating welding variables affect the working of the process,
and can be adjusted during the welding operation i.e.: intensity I, voltage U, welding speed V
,distance between electrode and workpice etc. etc. are adjasted automaticaly (as for the
eddy current response)for production weld with the best quality. (welding parameters are chosen
to match the strength and toughness mechanical properties)

What are the main factors involved and roughly how much variations can these factors
be expected to cause?

: : what is the influence of welding parameters (such as intensity I, voltage U,
welding speed V,distance between electrode and workpice etc. etc.) with eddy current signal?

: : what is the influence of weld quality (shch as toughness and strength etc.) with
eddy current signal?

: : Does you have experience with such factors?

: : Does you know existing literature or website with a proper covering of this subject?

: : We are especially looking forward to replies relevant to control of automatic welding parameters with eddy current in ferromagnetic steel type.

Product Spotlight

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.

PAUT Probes

Typical Phased Array probes have frequencies between 1MHz and 20MHz and the number of wafers is 10
...
to 128. M2 Electronics offers customers conventionally ultrasound probes and the ability to provide high-precision Phased Array Ultrasound Probes of up to 256 wafers. We can also customize the probe for our customers to meet the specific application requirements of the user.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
