VIRO WSI - New Standards for Automated Weld Seam Inspection

VIRO WSI - New Standards for Automated Weld Seam Inspection

Weld seam flaws – no matter how small they are – can lead to serious consequences. The optical 100% inspection system VIRO WSI delivers reliable quality control 24/7 – ensuring that only flawless components continue on further into the production process and enabling rapid intervention should production variances occur.

Continuous seamless quality with maximum efficiency
The laser triangulation-based VIRO WSI inspection system can be flexibly integrated in existing production lines to detect the slightest deviations in brazed and welded seams. It inspects axle components, bodywork, wheels, seats, exhaust systems and battery modules. The inspection solution provides accurate, consistent, and reproducible inspections, regardless of external influences.

VIRO WSI system software – intuitive and user-friendly
VITRONIC is setting standards with an intuitive, graphical guided user-interface and extensive analysis options. The inspection system enables an easy teach-in of inspection sequences and limits. Users can also select from a wide range of configuration functions. Inspection results are also presented in a very clear and structured format.
All data is immediately accessible in real-time statistics. In parallel, it is stored in an integrated database where it is linked with component and seam ids for subsequent tracking, evaluation, and statistics.

Interactive visualization terminals for rework
The system offers optional visualization stations for manual rework. Here, workers can view individual seam inspection results of the components. Furthermore, workers can input completed rework in the system and document it together with the inspection results.

Along with offering visualization stations for manual rework, the VIRO WSI system also provides data for automated rework.

Used by premium manufacturers for many years, VIRO WSI not only enables more efficient processes but above all: higher product quality with less waste.


Company news



Along with the well-established HDR sensor for inspecting MIG/MAG seams, VITRONIC has now added a HDR-HR sensor to the VIRO WSI weld seam inspection system, which also inspects fine laser and brazed seams at 6m/min inline and with an exceptionally high degree of accuracy.

The most common applications are large-scale bodywork production, tailored blanks, and battery production. The new sensor offers an extremely high resolution and is successfully used by renowned OEMs and suppliers. This automated inspection solution also boasts user-friendly, intuitive software.
