Cavitar Ltd., based in Tampere, Finland, developed the groundbreaking Cavitar Welding Camera to expand and improve welders' applications and solutions. The camera uses proprietary bandpass filtering and laser illumination, allowing users to see through the bright welding arc in real time. It produces a clear image of the welding torch, puddle, and base metals so operators can monitor, record, and adjust their welding process from a distance reducing human safety risk and costly scrap on long automated production runs.
"Cavitar strives to change the world of visual weld monitoring with the Cavitar Welding Camera," said Dr. Taito Alahautala, CEO of Cavitar Ltd. "Partnering with InterTest, Inc., with their technical expertise, professionalism, and experience in the welding domain, will help us reach our vision: a better world with safer welds, better allocation of resources, and more engaging educational content."
