Class 2 lasers are considered safe for normal operation, having optical output power below 1 mW and operating only in the visible range. Click image to enlargeXiris Automation Inc.’s WI-2000 weld inspection system for tube and pipe manufacturing now incorporates a Class 2 laser.

Class 2 lasers are considered safe for normal operation, having optical output power below 1 mW and operating only in the visible range. This makes installing and using the new WI-2200 safer and easier, as a Laser Safety Officer is no longer required.  

The WI-2200 will have a constant laser output and a camera with adjustable exposure to control the brightness of the laser line in the acquired image.

This approach provides more linear control over the laser line for better inspection of the weld. The WI-2200 is the next generation of weld inspection systems and is ideally suited for all material types of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium and coated materials. It can be integrated on most tube mills that employ open arc welding such as laser, TIG, or plasma power sources, as well as on clean HF and ERW mills.
