What Is the Problem We Address?
Inspection is one of the key aspects of the welding process that ensures whether the weld is safe or not. NDE methods are manual among the current methods of weld inspection, however, these methods still have their limitations. Welding inside important structures like construction, shipyard, underwater, boilermaker, rig welders, etc., is challenging, given that welding often takes place in high places or narrow areas. Therefore, two main problems with current methods are:
- The need for a skilled operator to apply NDE methods is challenging
- Inspections done by human operators are only 80% accurate due to human error
- People get tired or distracted, and even the most trained professionals make mistakes
- Reliance on human inspectors increases the cost of inspections
- Individual inspectors can interpret results differently
- The necessity for material contact makes these methods sometimes impossible to use
- It is time-consuming
- the post-production documentation is costly
- It is dangerous in the case of radiographic
How We Solve the Problem:
Helios is an innovative helmet that is equipped with grinding and auto-darkening modes that will protect the welder, the mounted infrared (IR) sensors, and optical detectors against the ultraviolet rays of arc welding. Our product is an AI-powered helmet that provides real-time welding defect inspection using on-device processing (edge computing) technology along with thermal and optical images connecting to a vast dataset and deploying an automatic feature extraction step that will be effective for the reconnaissance of the flaws. Helios will reduce costs, speed up processes, and improve security. Furthermore, it can store results for future evaluations and maintain high accuracy.
Our Helmet’s Features
Helios provides a high inspection accuracy for both external and internal defects using the mounted infrared (IR) sensors and optical detectors on the helmet.
An ND filter is essentially a darkened piece of glass (or resin) that does not change anything other than the amount of light that passes through it. It is necessary to place the ND filter in front of a CMOS camera to prevent damage to the eyes or the equipment. Our real-time welding monitoring system will utilize a CMOS sensor covered by an ND filter.
The helmet has to protect the welder against the ultraviolet rays of the welding arc. As long as your helmet is on, you should not have to further adjust the darkness of the lens. You can preset the shade level based on your needs and preferences. The helmet will know how much to darken based on your settings.
Grinding mode is a provided option that presets the shade level at a lower value to provide better visibility during the grinding process. Activated by a switch or button, the grinding mode can improve welder safety and productivity. Adding grinding mode to our product along with auto-darkening mode has enabled us to eliminate the need to remove the welding cap during the grinding operation.
Data storage devices come in two main categories: direct area storage and network-based storage. Cloud storage is the process of storing digital data in an online space that has multiple servers and locations. Local storage is the process of storing digital data on physical storage devices, such as hard disc drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), or external storage devices. Helios offers both local and cloud data storage, making future evaluations easier.
