Mini-Weld
Miniature Portable Welders for Projection & Resistance Welding

Light-weight welding guns are ideal hand-sized units for light duty projection and resistance welding.

Applications

Mini-Weld guns and accessories are recommended for production line use in light industries such as small appliance, instrument, and electronics. They are also extremely useful in machine shop and maintenance operations.

Features / Benefits

Series 2000 microprocessor-based controller stores programmable, pre-selected weld Schedules. Schedules are programmed and recalled through a removable, hand-held terminal that prevents unauthorized changes. Unique, paten pending, approaches to voltage compensation and phase shift heat control assure the highest degree of precision and consistency

Mini-Weld portable, light-weight welding guns are ideal hand-sized units for light-duty projection and resistance welding.

    CONTROLLER

    Series 2000 Microprocessor-based, Programmable Weld Controller:

  • Stores pre-selected weld schedules. Automatically controls Percent Heat, Squeeze Time, Weld Time, Hold Time.
  • Heat Time Range: 1/2 cycle to 100 cycles
  • Stores multiple pre-selected weld schedules.
  • Automatically controls Squeeze Time Percent Heat, Weld Time, Hold Time.
    Squeeze-hold time: 3 to 75 cycles.
    Weld time: 1/2 to 30 cycles.
  • Schedules programmed and recalled through hand-held terminal.
  • Automatic line-Voltage compensation 1/2-cycle of weld, starting with the first 1/2-cycle.
  • Unique phase shift control provides true under-the-curve adjustment for consistent welds.
  • Battery back-up to protect memory
  • RS232 port provides input/output interface
  • Polarity selection and 1/2-cycle control.
  • Semi-automatic and automatic mode selector.

    Options

    Weld Monitor
    Weld monitors have been available for many years. Unfortunately, most of these devices are either current, or milli-volt second monitors, neither of which satisfy the basic requirement. To properly evaluate a weld, we must establish a correlation with what is happening electronically, and the mechanical test results. To do this we must have weld monitoring instrumentation capable of providing the necessary information. To properly monitor a weld, the equipment must measure current and area under the curve on each half cycle in A.C. applications, and measure current and area under the curve for each weld in D.C. applications. Further, it must be capable of calculating the product of these and reporting in half cycle increments, for A.C. applications. This product is called the weld energy, which is expressed in watt-seconds or joules.

    H=I2RT
    H is the heat energy developed in each weld.
    I is the current in amperes.
    R is the resistance in ohms.
    T is the time in milliseconds, or microseconds.

    Finally, the weld monitor must be capable of accepting both upper and lower control limits with alarms to alert, or shut down the process.

    Only Welding & Automation, Inc. offers such a device. The optional weld monitor is an intregal part of the Series 2000 Weld Control, and measures energy in real time, unlike remote add on monitors. It is fully programmable for upper and lower process control limits. The weld monitor audits every half cycle of the weld, capturing the readings for current (in amperes) and milli-volt seconds (area under the curve). The product of these is expressed in joules of energy for each half cycle. The weld monitor protects against process shifts caused by dirty or worn electrodes, dirty or inconsistent product, equipment malfunctions, and countless other variables. The weld monitor stores the readings in memory for downloading to SPC packages for process capability analysis, or to printers for charting and evaluation.
