Xiris releases Class 2 laser weld inspection

Xiris Automation Inc. announced a new version of its WI-2000 weld inspection system for tube and pipe manufacturing that incorporates a Class 2 laser. The safer Class 2 laser makes installation and operation safer and easier, especially as a laser safety officer is no longer required. The system has a constant laser output and provides the ability to adjust the camera 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.
