Amada Weld Tech (Monrovia, Calif.) today announced it has added a redesigned wire compacting unit to its line of modular resistance welders.
Made for stranded wires, the plug-and-play, the ready-to-install modular compacting unit offers precise, fast, and reproducible adjustment after electrode exchange.
This new product replaces the previous open C-frame box type unit, with a closed box design for maximum rigidity, eliminating flexing of the unit due to lateral forces. Ball bushes offer precise guidance of the ceramic slide and a new cross roller guide facilitates adjustment of the electrode position.
Featuring fast, precise, and reproducible adjustment of the ceramic and electrode position, using a micrometre screw, operators can now lock the ceramic and electrode position without affecting adjustment. As a result, the adjustment time has been reduced from thirty minutes down to five, according to the company.
