Investing in Equipment
When thinking about investing in new welding equipment, there are some important things to consider. The latest generation of welding equipment is designed with embedded capability of welding-data capturing and analytic software, which can help metal formers elevate their weld-shop quality and productivity to new heights. These new data and analytics packages allow real time identification of problems so the manufacturer can reduce costs, fine tune welder training, and prevent weld defects.

It has also decreased the number of expensive destructive tests and laid the foundation for optimizing the preventive maintenance procedure, all while reducing the number of emergency equipment stoppages.
