In this video, several examples of the capabilities of NIT’s sensors to monitor industrial welding processes are shown. Sensors used in the demos are the TACHYON 1024 CORE-HS operating at 10,000 fps, and the MATRIX 1024 CORE-S operating at 100 fps. The examples shown focus on resistance spot welding (automotive industry and home appliance manufactuing industry), and TIG welding (metal barrel manufacturing).
