IQFlex – Integrated Quality Control
IQflex is the adaptive control and monitoring from the first spot weld based on the proven Genius platform. In addition to our proven IQR controller and Q-lnspector, IQflex also includes the option of the reference-guided adaptive controller IQf with extended monitoring of the weld via the new IQ-lnspector. Short commissioning times and simple operation guarantee efficient and cost-effective production. The IQflex adaptive package is specially optimized for these requirements and guarantees reliable spot welding of steel materials. The elementary process variables current and voltage form the basis for our controller. A voltage tap on the secondary side of the transformer provides a precise and reliable measurement signal from which all necessary process variables can be determined.
The actual welding gun or machine remains free of cables to ensure easy maintenance By means of the process resistance, which is recalculated every millisecond, the controller individually adjusts the welding current to the requirements of each welding spot. This guarantees a short process time since the required energy is applied in a concentrated manner. Minimizing cycle time is one of our customers’ most important criteria for using IQflex.
