HKS Prozesstechnik GmbH
HKS-Prozesstechnik GmbH is one of the world's leading providers of welding measurement technology, microelectronics and software technology.
ESAB’s integrated digital solutions demonstrations at FABTECH 2018 will feature HKS’s WeldQAS real-time weld quality analytics system. Ready for connection to ESAB WeldCloud, WeldQAS provides the micro details required by engineers and quality assurance personnel. Where many weld data capture systems can only log data at 1 Hz, WeldQAS captures data at 23 kHz. By comparing measured parameters with reference curves, the system calculates quality marks for each weld seam and provides an instant notification when an irregularity occurs. Faults detected can include poor arc ignition, porosity, burn-through, seam length (too long or short) and seam interruption.
HKS will also demonstrate its WeldScanner, which combines the functions of a multi-meter, oscilloscope and recorder in a mobile, industrial handheld device and is designed as a universal tool of the welding expert for welding data documentation, error analysis, current source calibration and the T8/5 time measurement.
