Xiris Automation Inc., Burlington, Ontario, Canada, has launched a new thermal camera designed for metal Additive Manufacturing, the XIR-1800. The new camera uses high dynamic range (HDR) SWIR technology and includes access to WeldStudio™, the company’s machine vision and thermal imaging software tool.

This is said to enable users to view clear images of the welding arc, melt pool and base material within metal Additive Manufacturing machines, as well as a 2D temperature map of deposited material, in real-time, helping to control and monitor the metal AM process.

Xiris’s thermal imaging tools offer better detection of thermal boundaries in the AM process such as melt pool or weld bead structures, as well as being able to measure the material temperature variations between passes. All thermal video can be recorded for offline review and quality audits.

The XIR-1800 is expected to be available to customers from early 2021.
