The TPS is a heat affected zone, thermal profile scanner, when combined with the weld monitor controller, allows the operator to see what is happening at the weld. Outputs to the HMI include the heat profile, weld speed, volts, amps, gas flow. Operating at 400Hz, the system can scan on welding applications to a speed of 180m/min. The glassless optics and the air/water-cooled housing permit the continuous reliable operation of the scanning head under the most difficult environmental conditions.

Defects: Off seam Weld Mismatch Porosity Burn through Lack of Fusion Cold Spots (Pasty Weld) Lack of Penetration Energy input fluctuations Material variances Hot Cracking Asymmetric welding
