Xiris Automation has released its artificial intelligence tool to process welding audio signals.
The Audio AI Tool will allow fabricators to teach an acceptable range of audio signal for a welding process that will then alarm on anomalies, like burn through and wire feed skips, in real time that could indicate welding defects.
The Audio AI Tool is a result of product development efforts by Xiris to meet fabricators’ requirements to remotely monitor welding processes and detect process discontinuities. Using the audio signal generated by Xiris’ WeldMic, the Audio AI Tool includes a self learning algorithm from an audio sample of the user’s process. Once the tool has been taught, it can be used in Run mode to alarm when the welding process deviates from the standard process. When combined with a Xiris weld camera, all welding audio, video and AI tool results can be recorded for further evaluation for quality assurance.
The Audio AI Tool is included with Xiris’ WeldStudio 3 Pro software that provides camera controls, graphical overlays, video recording and playback and image and audio processing via a user-friendly interface.
