Leister to Debut Leister Quality System at Geotechnical Frontiers
New GPS-based solution wirelessly shares seam data from field.
CHICAGO—Leister Technologies AG, the worldwide leader in plastic welding and hot air equipment, will debut the Leister Quality System (LQS) to the North American geo audience at Geotechnical Frontiers in Orlando, March 12 – 15, 2017. The company’s new GPS-based geo-welding technology, available in new GEOSTAR wedge welders, enables geo installers to record primary weld parameters and create enhanced reports. LQS works automatically in the background thanks to an intelligent communication module. Some benefits include:
- Recording of weld parameters (speed, temperature and pressure)
- Recording of individual seam lengths, with start and stop time
- Easily identifies and locates weld anomalies via GPS position
- Easily adds seam number, roll number, technician ID etc.
- Data is easily transferable via Wi-Fi
Thomas Furrer, head of Leister’s Geo business line, expressed his enthusiasm with this solution stating “LQS is more than just a data acquisition system, LQS is an entire solution; it enables field personnel to communicate weld results directly with the office through the use of the LQS app.”
The LQS app, available free for download, facilitates full monitoring of weld parameters, and provides clear data presentation with graphs and tables. The LQS app provides pre-defined reports from which to choose, which can easily be incorporated into custom “as-built” reports. The Leister Quality System offers you flexibility and security at the same time and easily monitors progress of over 100 machines simultaneously.
Customers are encouraged to stop by booth #613 to learn more about the Leister Quality System and speak with company executives about their application. Product demos will be available.
