Lorch Connect Gateway App
CONNECT. WELD. SEE CLEARLY
The Lorch Connect Gateway App for an easy start-up of the Lorch Connect
The Lorch Connect Gateway acts as the interface between the user and the
welding system plus the Lorch Connect Portal.
All digital services of Lorch are available here.
The app enables the configuration and modification of network settings, in order
to connect the Lorch Connect Gateway with the Lorch Connect Portal.
In addition, the Lorch Connect Gateway can be paired to a Lorch Connect
account via the app.
It is possible to gather additional information about
each weld seam such as order number, part number, serial number, and WPS
number. In addition, process information such as wire diameter, material and
gas type can be added to the welds. On basis of this data the customer can later
carry out analyses and cost calculations according to his tasks.
Our digital services ata glance:
Online monitoring: Performance in numbers.
The dashboard represents the central feature of the Lorch Connect Portal. It
shows all key production indicators such as duty cycles, arc times or parameters
in a quick and easy-to-understand manner. This offers a straightforward and
convenient way for you to identify the productivity of all connected systems.
Cost controlling: Paying off in the end.
How profitable was an order or specific component? The answer to this question
is held by the cost controlling tool. This tool automatically adds up all
consumption figures and monetises them. The basis for the calculation is formed
by your individual master data and includes such information as the prices of
different welding wires and gases, the cost of energy and the labour costs
associated with your welders. The result is a calculation of profitability that is
comprehensive and dependable.
Documentation: All essential data in one location.
The Lorch Connect Gateway records each individual weld seam along with all
data that may be relevant to production and passes this information on
automatically to the Lorch Connect Portal. At this portal, all weld seams are
documented with their associated parameter values. The real-world advantage:
You can now draw important conclusions from such individual, process-defining
parameters as current and voltage and apply them to the quality of the seam or
the compliance with welding procedure specifications.
