The MeltView DART camera automatically adjusts between welding and non-welding to provide a clear image, as shown in this video of short circuit GMAW.
The SYNC camera mounts to the welding torch to capture the welding process continually at high speeds, up to 1300 frames per second as shown here.
At over 300 frames per second, these features start to become visible, and the SYNC can record video continuously at up to 1200 fps to capture most welding phenomena in great detail.
Defects in the alloy layer defeat the purpose of cladding and result in costly scrap, re-work or even failure of the component in the field. Monitoring the overlay process is difficult due to geometry and high temperatures.
