Standard Features

The impressive list of standard features include:

  • 4 unique weld modes:
    • Collapse Distance controls weld joint displacement.
    • Total Distance controls final assembly height.
    • Revolutions controls number of spindle rotations.
    • Time controls weld duration.
  • Manual mode allows complete z-axis and spindle rotation to simplify setup.
  • Proprietary dual-proportional valve pneumatic actuation for programmable velocity and force control.
  • Linear potentiometer provides weld-by-depth control.
  • Vacuum or positive air pressure integrated into upper tooling spindle for simple part retention.
  • Integrated power supply for true benchtop design.
  • Process monitoring with programmable high and low pass/fail limits.
  • Resettable and lifetime cycle counters to track production output and manage preventative maintenance.
  • Cast-aluminum base with leveling plate.

Additional Options

Available options include:

  • Stage II data collection package provides remote SPC data acquisition.
  • 240 VAC power version.
  • Remote HMI for easy operator interface in welder integration applications.
  • 4" and 8" column riser blocks for taller components.
