August 17, 2018
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (July 27, 2018) – Recognizing the need to offer the highest quality of cut and etch testing, ACRO Automation Systems has invested in a dedicated imaging tool, the Struers’ StructureExpert Weld-5. Traditionally, cut and etch testing while necessary, is also known as destructive testing in the welding world. ACRO uses cut and etch testing to provide high quality, reliable products to its customers across a wide range of welding applications. With Struers’ inverted optical system, automatic lighting focus and calibration capabilities, the company is now able to provide its customers with an accurate and efficient method to measure weld beads. StructureExpert Weld-5 complies with applicable international directives and appurtenant standards. This tool is also very easy to use and customizable for many different customer specifications.
The innovative design of StructureExpert Weld facilitates easy, precise placement of the prepared sample. The advantage of the unique inverted optical system is that the sample surface is always the same distance to the camera. This eliminates the need to make continuous height adjustments and calibrations. With a single click, the operator has the information required to perform the necessary checks.
With this purchase, ACRO continues to make significant improvements in the welding and metal fabrication services it provides customers. Mike Loomis, president, ACRO says, “Fast measurement and inspection is critical for the speed and success of our customers’ welding requirements. While our cut and etch testing process has been always been carried out by highly skilled and experienced industry professionals, we are happy to take the quality of this process several notches up with Struers’ StructureExpert Weld-5. We are able to ensure maximum weld bead quality with precise and cost-efficient weld bead inspection, measurement, and reporting with this dedicated tool that does it all. It has helped reduce the measurement time by 10-15 minutes per weld, which is a significant time saving in the overall production process. Our team carefully considered and evaluated different tools before selecting the unique design and features of StructureExpert Weld-5. Offering our customers greater accuracy, efficiency, and control of after-weld quality assurance processes is a top priority, and we are happy to deliver it ongoing.”
