Save Time

StructureExpert Weld is designed for easy, precise placement of the prepared sample. The unique inverted optical system ensures that the sample surface is always the same distance to the camera, making continuous height adjustments and calibrations unnecessary. One click provides the information required to perform the necessary checks.

Ensure Accuracy

The built-in digital camera and software-controlled magnification adjustment make it easy to find the best field of view. The calibration is loaded automatically with the set magnification – ensuring maximum accuracy and reproducibility. The dedicated internal LED ring light provides bright, uniform illumination for crisp, high image contrast and precise measurements.

Maximum Weld Bead Control

StructureExpert Weld helps boost welding quality. Dedicated weld control software with specific measurement tools ensures that weld bead measurement and analysis processes are performed accurately. Through easy-to-customize report templates and data tracking possibilities, it is possible to speed up the processes and ensure their full traceability.

KEY FEATURES THAT ENSURE FAST MEASUREMENT AND INSPECTION

Maximum weld bead quality is ensured with StructureExpert Weld. StructureExpert Weld is the only stand-alone dedicated imaging tool that provides a simple way to ensure precise and cost-efficient weld bead inspection, measurement, and reporting – all in one solution. Unique design and features enable accuracy, efficiency, and control of after-weld quality assurance processes.

  • WeldingExpert Inverted optical system

    Inverted Optical System

    The inverted optical system maintains a constant distance between the sample and the camera, providing a constantly sharp image without the need for focus adjustment.
