ESAB Links Cutting and Welding Online Data Management Programs

ESAB's online data management solutions, WeldCloud and CutCloud, provide manufacturers and fabricators with integration between cutting and welding operations.

ESAB Welding and Cutting has introduced its CutCloud online data management system and unveiled advancements in its WeldCloud online data management system, including the ability for these software programs to bi-directionally share data, as well as incorporate gas management information.

"The factory of the future links together all of its machine ecosystems. By connecting CutCloud and WeldCloud, ESAB provides manufacturers and fabricators with seamless integration," said Roul Kierkels, Global Product Manager DDA & WeldCloud, ESAB.

Holger Hahn, Global Product Marketing Manager Application Software, ESAB, added, "Because we use an open architecture, we can interlink all of the production data in a business, across all departments. Operating, machine and quality management data are collected. This brings complete transparency to production flows, including order processing, process times and more, so users can see immediately where optimization is possible."

CutCloud and WeldCloud provide analytical tools and customizable dashboards for companies that want to use them as standalone software. In addition, they integrate with other business intelligence systems, such as Power BI, SAP, QlikView and Tableau.

CutCloud is an extension of ESAB's DataLeap software modules, which give users an overview of all production flows, an insight into all manufacturing processes and specific indications of untapped potential for optimization in production. CutCloud enables users of ESAB cutting systems equipped with Vision Series controls to access all DataLeap tools on any network-enabled device. It will automatically receive software as well as other cutting technology update notifications and download updates and deploy them to all machines in the future.

New WeldCloud functions include the ability to remotely adjust welding parameters for systems equipped with ESAB's U82 controller with built-in web server option, the ability to create a "welding passport" file tree that organizes every weld session on large components, the ability to add documents (such as an NDT report or WPS sheet) and the ability to capture data from multi-head submerged arc applications.

ESAB offers WeldCloud on its Aristo Mig 4004i Pulse semi-automatic, Aristo Mig 5000iR robotic and LAF/TAF sub arc welding systems. Users can purchase these systems WeldCloud-ready, and ESAB can retrofit some existing systems with a communication module.
