Program recommends welding practices

Arc Works WeldSelector and WeldCalculator have been added to the company's line of software products. WeldSelector is a knowledge system that suggests suitable electrodes, American Welding Society (AWS) recommended practices, and pre/post weld heat treatments. WeldCalculator allows users to compare weld processes and to develop an effective cost-reduction plan. It can analyze multiple processes for a weld joint and calculate cost per ft, per unit, or per pound of weld.

Software gathers data from controllers

Asset Management Solutions software gathers information from microprocessor-based instruments in a plant's control network. Loaded into a PC in the maintenance department or instrument shop, it captures data via the highway addressable remote transducer (HART) or Foundation Fieldbus communication protocols without interfering with the control system. The data are organized into a database that includes the operating parameters of every device on the network. Graphics allow maintenance personnel to examine the condition of the instruments remotely. The software expedites startups requiring device configuration and loop checkout, streamlines calibration and troubleshooting, monitors devices to provide a predictive maintenance model, automates documentation of maintenance activities, and integrates maintenance data with EAM systems.
