OPERATOR STATION CONTROLS
All functions that result in machine motion can be initiated via the HMI, which contains an E-Stop push button, a panel PC, welding parameter override functions, axis selectors, jog motion touch buttons, and push buttons to start/abort the program. USB and Ethernet connections allow communication with external devices.
HIGH-SPEED DATA COLLECTION
Bond offers high-speed data collection on all of its welding systems. This permits a user-configured, real-time display of welding data on the HMI. Further, user-configured log files are created and saved on the machine, permitting data analysis and plotting, diagnosis of issues, etc. Having the data collected at such a high speed allows the user to assess weld quality in real-time.
