The Arc Eye in Action

Identifying Weld Defects

Enceladus Imaging Inc. recently collaborated with MaJIC to test the Arc Eye Camera's effectiveness in monitoring welding operations to produce high quality welds. Data obtained during the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process for both the regular spray and cold metal transfer were used to assess the level of detail yielded from the visual information in real-time and identify the presence of defects, if any.

The tests conducted yielded the following images:

Arc Eye PS

Arc Eye LWL

Arc Eye CVX

Arc Eye ATF

Weld details including droplet size and pattern, weld pool/arc size, shape and colour can be seen visibly. The Arc Eye Camera was capable of detecting defects such as porosity, torch and joint misalignment, undercut, burn through and lack of fusion. These tests provide convincing evidence that attest to the practicality of the HDR camera in minimizing - even eliminating - occupational welding hazards and as a learning tool for new welders.

Enceladus in the news: A New Way To Look At Welding

MaJIC recently hosted Enceladus Imaging in their labs to record and render images of a number of different weld processes using high-speed HDR. Here’s a featured article about the experience:

“Quality managers, automation specialists, and weld technologists, this is for you…

Have you ever wanted to see what’s really going on in the weld arc? As anyone who has struck an arc knows, the contrast between the brightness of the arc and the (relatively) dim surroundings during welding make viewing the complete weld process extremely difficult. High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, now being incorporated into many welding cameras, drastically improves the visibility of the weld process. Combine HDR with high speed photography, and you can see some truly impressive images of a weld in-progress…”
