Lincoln's CheckPoint weld data monitorClick image to enlargeLincoln Electric has launched the fifth generation of its CheckPoint Weld Data Monitoring solution, featuring a fresh redesign to further improve the ability to turn weld data into action.

With the new redesign, the tool delivers improved dashboards and reports, all purposely designed to help users make the most of the real-time weld data they collect to drive productivity, quality and efficiency around the clock.

This latest generation of CheckPoint moves users beyond overwhelming amounts of raw information and dated reports, using clean, powerful dashboards to deliver essential weld data faster and easier.

Upgraded features include:

  • Improved dashboards that provide essential, industry-specific Key Performance Indicators to track productivity, including trend projections, Operating Factor, and real-time OEE calculations.
  • Improved charting and graphing, including dynamic data-point breakdowns, and chart filters.
  • Optimized reporting that helps track key quality metrics down to the individual welding station or robotic cell.
  • Real-time shift planning to help visualize shift schedules and planned downtime.

Available as a standard feature on existing and new Power Wave and PIPEFAB welding systems, CheckPoint weld data monitoring has no software to install and no hidden costs. The cloud-based platform can be easily accessed on a web browser, allowing users to quickly connect and visualize weld data anywhere, at any time.
