Product Description

Features :

  • 1) No skilled person required
  • 2) Faster welding compared to Conventional welding
  • 3) Aesthetically better looking Welds and non conspicuous
  • 4) Strong leak proof welding is achievable without Repeated welding trials
  • 5) Circumferential welding can be done on a single stroke/go
  • 6) No filler rod material is required for welding
  • 7) Long life electrode wheels ensure maintenance is very low compared to normal welding operations and procedures.
  • 8) Micro Processor based seam welding control.
  • 9) 20 storable programs which means 10 different jobs can be welded and welding parameters saved with no need to re enter welding parameters each time, before beginning welding process.
  • 10) Ac Variable Frequency drive is incorporated to vary speeds of wheel based on electrode consumption

Machine Description & Manufacturer’s Scope of Supply


100 kVA, 100 % duty cycle, 440 VAC 50 Hz Frequency power source, air convection cooled, secondary pipe water cooled step down transformer will be standing type More details in Transformer section.


Reinforced fabricated steel structure with well ventilated covers Simply supported type, heavy section fabricated upper and lower arms fitted directly on the front side of the machine Upper arms carries friction or anti-friction ram along with the upper weld wheel assembly Lower arm carries the lower weld wheel assembly with ample section bus bar. The upper and lower arm are constructed such a way that even under heavy pneumatic pressure, minimum deflection occurs. Main transformer is housed in the basic body.


A heavy duty transformer made as per IS - 4804 Part 1 is used as the main power source Special sandwich construction of coils helps to increase the coupling between the windings and offers maximum efficiency Primary and secondary conductors are selected to suit the heavy demand current Copper cooling tubes are brazed throughout the periphery of the secondary segments. Transformer core is made out of cold rolled grain oriented lamination sheets to reduce the core losses Class F insulation materials used in the transformer help to withstand a temperature of up to 155º C The coil assembly is varnished in F 50 varnish and vacuum impregnated. A special thermo switch fitted on the secondary segment helps to cut out the control circuit when the temperature of the winding rises above the safe level, thereby protecting the transformer from overloading.



Consists of copper alloy weld wheels of suitable section of hardness 68 Rockwell B scale, weld wheel shafts, high percentage of copper content phosphor bronze bushing and water cooled holders of ample section copper alloy casting.


The ram assembly will consists of hardened and ground guide rail with guide block. The guide-rail mounted on body frame whereas the guide block to be will reciprocated along the pneumatic cylinder direction. This type of ram assembly assures prompt cylinder response time for forward and reverse motion, also the ram system is isolated from weld wheel assembly to avoid the rail ball bearings to get burnt.


The basic pneumatic system consists of a pneumatic double acting cylinder, solenoid valve of4 way 5 port, filter, lubricator, regulator, gauge and foot operating initiating switch for solenoid coil. The precision honed and lapped pneumatic cylinder, both sides cushioned, is directly connected to the ram with the help of coupling Electrode force is varied by means of the air regulator knob.


An AC motor is mounted on the upper arm Reduction gear unit with variable drive is always directly coupled to the weld wheel shaft Hence no wheel slippage will take place as in the case of direct knurl drive Knurling device will be directly mounted on the upper or lower weld wheel. The dressing pressure can be adjusted by means of a spring provided in the knurl wheel assembly.


All the current carrying components are internally water cooled and hence no external water spraying is required as in the conventional machines. The upper and lower bus bars are provided with built in water jackets.


The Micro-Processor Control is housed in a desk type control cabinet, which is normally suited for separate floor mounting. All the control knobs are housed on the desk behind a transparent acrylic guard door to prevent misuse by unauthorized persons. The control circuits used in the system are based on the latest technology of IC’s, transistors and thyristors. For easy operation and maintenance, all cards are modular type and wherever necessary, sturdy plugs and sockets are used for easy service. The control and foot switch circuit is connected to a low, safe and isolated control voltage.


The foot switch will initiate the solenoid valve of the pneumatic cylinder and simultaneously the squeeze timer will energize the weld control, after the time set ( 1 - 250 cycles).

A fully synchronous digital timer of “ 0 - 9 cycles ON ” and “ 0 - 9 cycles OFF ” will feed exact“ ON - Off ” pulses to the heat control card. The heat control card generates pulses, which triggers the thyristor switch. The current of the welding transformer can be adjusted from 5%to 100% by means of the phase shift firing of the thyristor switch.

The thyristors, matching the KVA of the transformer connected, in inverse parallel constitute the thyristor switch. The thyristor switch is mounted on an ample water cooled heat sink section to facilitate smooth and efficient current switching to the welding transformer for continuous welding operation, without appreciable change in the heat sink temperature Protection devices like thyrectors for high voltage transients and thermo switch for heat sink temperature control is incorporated Hold timer is provided to stop the welding current, before separation of welding wheels The range of timer is 1 - 100 cycles.
