Three Multi-Head Twin Station Special Purpose Projection Welders were designed for welding M5, M6 and M8 Weld Nuts and M6 & M8 Weld Bolts to pressings. The twin station concept allows simultaneous operator loading and machine welding. Efficiencies are further driven by an auto eject mechanism onto conveyor. Prospot Nut verification systems ensure the correct nut is welded in the correct orientation.
The Exhaust Boxes encompass the full range of Petrol and Diesel Internal Combustion Engine vehicles as well as a novel hybrid system which uses a Petrol Engine to charge the battery with only a high output electric motor connected to the wheels.
Our seam welders are novel and hi-tech utilising weld monitoring, PLC control with programmable rotary and linear drives to handle the complex weld path and production variants. With bespoke tooling and auto-eject with conveyors they optimise production speed and efficiency. The welders have extensive diagnostics and control ready for Industry 4.0.
What is “Micro-Welding”? At Prospot, our micro-welding range covers equipment from 500VA (0.5kVA) to 10kVA and is generally used for the welding of small precision components in a range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
For example, our PW500 portable spot weld unit has a built-in 500VA Weld Transformer and a precise digital weld control allowing welding of electronic components, jewellery and instrumentation joints in a range of materials using our CT2 Tweezers and our Spot Weld “Pens”. The PW500’s larger brother, the MPW-8 has an 8kVA Transformer and Digital Weld Control and is widely used for spot and seam welding of stainless steel thermal blankets and other similar components using our range of tweezers, poke gun and seam weld attachments.
Our range of FW2 and FW3 Bench mounted micro-weld heads are available in a range of configurations, both manual and air operated including opposed electrode type and twin head models allowing standard direct welding as well as series and indirect welding modes for battery pack assemblies and other challenging weld projects. These weld heads are ideally suited for connection to our range of precision power sources which include AC, MFDC and Capacitor Discharge models.
Maximising the use of robots helps to bring the full welding process into a cell. Here 3 ABB robots are kitted out with a Ivostud Servo Controlled Short Cycle Stud Weld Gun with Auto Feed of the Weld Studs, a Serra Pneumatic AC Spot Welding gun controlled from a Serratron 100C weld timer, and a handling gripper – all operating around a two station rotary indexer.
