AMI, an ESAB brand, has launched the M317 orbital welding controller for automated welding applications in the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, aerospace, nuclear, and other pipe fabrication operations.
Touchscreen features include an automated pipe schedule generator. A schedule editor allows operators to adjust, fine-tune, add, delete, and navigate amperage levels. Once in welding mode, a data analytics engine provides live data, while cameras offer a live view of the weld.
Paired with ESAB’s WeldCloud and other orbital analytics, the system helps users collect, store, and manage data files locally or on the cloud.
