Before examining common causes of ultrasonic welding problems, let's take a moment to understand the welding cycle itself.
These HotPurge Inflatable Tube and Pipe Purging Systems can be used repeatedly for weld purging and will keep the oxygen levels below 100 ppm throughout the welding cycle.
These HotPurge Inflatable Tube and Pipe Purging Systems can be used repeatedly for weld purging and will keep the oxygen levels below 100 parts per million (ppm) throughout the welding cycle, ensuring oxide and coke free welds, without the metallurgical imperfections caused by exposure to too much oxygen.
The non-contact infrared welding cycle is very similar to HPW in that it includes the same fundamental steps mentioned above.
Herrmann says its robotic welder with preloaded pneumatic cylinders cuts one second of process time from each weld, reducing the welding cycle by 20 seconds.
3a, closed, a DC constant current is applied to the heating element, which are held at a relatively constant temperature during the welding cycle.
In addition, features such as automatic opening of the door or sliding table at the end of the welding cycle provide tangible benefits for the operator, helping to reduce the unload and load times.
Higher cell's flexibility and productivity may be reached due to greater number of (two sides, in-line) included positioners allowing overlapping of heavy part loading and welding cycle times (Nicolescu, 2010).
The ORBI001 can be interfaced to the ORBIMAT C power supply and the welding cycle will be disabled until the internal gas quality is suitably pure.
The Power Wave 455 / STT was used for the complete welding cycle on the all pipe butts welded.
This integrated system has been shown to produce improved response time, 'one the fly' process changes and arc start improvements, thus reducing welding cycle times and lowering welding costs.
This allows the welding cycle to be completed within a relatively short period of time.
