Controlling costs and improving productivity is always at the top of your list. These can be difficult to achieve, though, without easy access to good data. Even if you’ve taken steps to improve certain areas, like quality issues or bottlenecks, if you’re not monitoring and measuring your efforts consistently, you won’t know whether or not they’re working.
There is one simple solution to tackling these many challenges: digitizing. When you have data on hand, you can track nearly every aspect of your operation, down to the materials used to weld a part and the welder who worked on it.
You can also step back and see the bigger picture perspective across your operation with far more ease – based on real-time information – so you can make informed business decisions. This high level of visibility will help you to improve throughput and quality across your whole operation.
At ESAB, we’ve developed an online management system – WeldCloud – that makes this all possible. It connects welding power supplies to a software platform that manages every inch of data. Information can then be easily analyzed to maximize productivity. It can also be used to inform future decisions, making your company more competitive down the line.
With data from WeldCloud, you can optimize your company’s welding process – and increase productivity and profitability – by:
Every time a welder completes a pass, a trove of data is infused in the weld. That data has a lot of power and with WeldCloud, it’s easily accessible. This can help to overcome issues, like porosity in a part, before it impacts the entire line or jeopardizes a project. Over time, you can use the data to improve quality across every part, each workstation, and your operation as a whole.
Your welders spend a lot of time determining the best possible welding process for a given application. There’s a lot of data to be considered before making a decision and it then has to be tested on one machine. Once a welding process is finalized, WeldCloud can then send the process to the cloud and push it out to all the machines in your shop. This will save a tremendous amount of time.Not only that but there’s two-way communication between the WeldCloud platform and your machines. The platform can push settings, such as a new weld parameter combo, to each machine and the machines can send data back to the platform. This all reduces training time for your welding team, all while ensuring parts are consistent.
When there’s a problem, you’ll know it with WeldCloud, no matter how large your operation is. Through it, your service and maintenance team can access data, so they know at-a-glance where all the machines in the fleet are – within a few feet thanks to the GPS locator – and what they're doing at any given time. If one breaks down or has any issues, WeldCloud alerts technicians immediately. They can then provide a quick and accurate diagnosis and fix it as soon as possible. This helps to minimize lengthy downtime.
It’s critical to increase productivity while maintaining a high-quality output. WeldCloud makes that possible by equipping your operations managers with data to find new productivity drivers. For instance, they can easily:
This data is accessible via a user-friendly, simple-to-navigate interface. It’s also available anytime from anywhere, whether you’re at work, at home, on a desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
Traceability is a mission-critical aspect for every welding company. With WeldCloud, you can quickly and easily trace back to welds that have been created and access a range of details.
If there’s a problem with a particular part, for instance, you can quickly see everything, from who welded it and when to what materials they used. For your quality assurance engineers, it makes troubleshooting easier and faster. They’re also able to repair issues and prevent future problems.
Digitizing welding provides visibility into what’s happening in each weld cell. As a result, with WeldCloud, you can track key data, like filler metal, electricity used, voltage, arc-on time, and shielding gas used. You can then leverage this information to improve overall throughput and productivity.
Consider these real-world examples of how other companies are using WeldCloud to optimize their processes:
If you’re just beginning to think about digitizing data, it makes sense to start small. For instance, you can begin with one area of your facility or one production line. You might want to start with the welding operation or cutting area, digitizing those spots first and then progressing to larger areas over time.
Once you begin the process with WeldCloud, you can then start monitoring data and put it to use in a range of useful ways, from boosting throughput and getting rid of bottlenecks to reducing costs in your operations. You’ll also know exactly where problems start, so you can fix them before they escalate. From the smallest parts to your largest workstation, you can optimize results across all stages of welding.
