Miller Electric Mfg. LLC., a worldwide manufacturer of Miller® brand arc welding equipment, has released an updated version of Insight Centerpoint weld data monitoring software. Centerpoint 10 is designed for greater ease of use, faster startup time and a drastically shortened learning curve.
Offering guidance and control within the weld cell, Insight Centerpoint helps operations detect missed welds, verify proper weld sequences and ensure consistent weld quality in manufacturing applications such as heavy equipment, agriculture and transportation.
“Insight Centerpoint is the most established, advanced data monitoring solution in the industry,” says Jason Bonnell, product manager, Miller Insight Welding Intelligence™. “Centerpoint 10 includes a completely new interface to enhance the capabilities for navigation and self-discovery of features — making the software easier to use.”
The improved interface results in faster setup time and includes a customizable operator interface that shows information relevant to the user across all screen sizes.
Enhanced capabilities of the software include the following:
- Drag and drop part creation eliminates the hassle of dialogue boxes when importing digital assets such as videos, pictures, documents and other media. Simply drag and drop into the new Centerpoint media manager. Also, users can create a part completely within the Centerpoint program — eliminating the need to create the part outside of the program and import it in;
- Slide masterallows users to create a customizable theme slide that applies across all slides, which saves time when large changes are required;
- Centralized databaseallows users to create parts and jobs to be done from their office and deploy the updates to the shop floor without traveling to the weld cell;
- Integrated reports, an improved built-in reporting tool that displays productivity and quality data as well as welder activities — viewable by device or by individual operator;
- Browser based reportingallows anyone within the enterprise to view the weld quality and productivity data collected from the welding operation through Centerpoint software on a localized server; and
- Job trackingrecords all activities that go into the creation of a welded product. A browser-based user interface eliminates the need for a PC in the workstation, allowing an operator to easily record everything that goes into creating a part, such as base material and filler metal type.
Insight Centerpoint 10 also includes many software features from the previous version. Part Tracking™ technology provides real-time operator feedback to prevent missed welds, ensure accurate weld sequence and confirm proper welding parameters. WorkFlow™ technology enables users to present electronic work instructions for pre, intra and post-weld activities using video, PDF and many other digital documents for consistent standardized production from every operator.
