Recent net-centric and remote monitoring advancements provide opportunities for the industrial market to improve efficiency, productivity and quality. Miller Electric Mfg. Co. is applying this leading edge technology to production welding within the industrial manufacturing industry segment. This technology has been developed to address a number of issues common to industrial production welding.
There is significant change taking place in the workforce of the welding industry. Baby boomers are quickly approaching retirement, some taking with them a lifetime of in-depth knowledge in the art of welding. They are being replaced by a new generation with much less experience. These less experienced welders tend to have lower productivity, coupled with a higher propensity for mistakes. Regardless of this fact, Miller's customers still must maintain quality standards and output efficiency. They require welding systems that will help catch human error and defects as early in the process as possible, so they can prevent small problems from becoming large, expensive problems. Miller's solution, the Axcess® E welding system, addresses this issue, and so much more.
The Axcess E is designed to easily connect via the factory floor network to provide valuable information to the operator, production management, maintenance, engineering, and plant management so they can take the proper actions that will improve their welding operations.
