Coil Joining System features non-contact splicing.
May 22, 2012 -
Incorporating laser cutting and welding with single head, Infinite WebŪ enables splicing of titanium coils as well as splicing on 15° bias. Latter increases effective splice strength by increasing material at weld joint, and coaxial optics verify proper positioning. Able to service multiple converting lines, mobile and stand-alone system handles material thicknesses from 0.002-0.040 in. and features industrial PC-based control with touchscreen interface.

Joining Technologies Announces Enhancements to Its Infinite WebŪ All-In-One Coil Joining System
New features facilitate titanium splicing and welding on a bias - ideal for roll forming operations
Joining Technologies, Inc., an innovator in industrial laser applications, announces new features and functionality to its innovative Infinite WebŪ all-in-one coil joiner, a non-contact splicing process that incorporates laser cutting and welding with a single head. The new features enable the splicing of titanium coils, as well as splicing on a 15 degree bias as an alternative to forming perpendicular joints. The bias increases the splice's effective strength by increasing material at the weld joint, which further enhances the life cycle of downstream equipment by staging the arrival of the welds.
The Infinite WebŪ dramatically increases throughput, with some customers reporting a greater than 33 percent increase in plant-wide productivity resulting from improved efficiency and capabilities. With the ability to service multiple converting lines, the Infinite WebŪ is a truly mobile, stand-alone system requiring only an electrical input and minimal operator involvement. The industrial PC-based control system features a touch screen interface, predefined programs for selected alloys, and proprietary self-diagnostics to ensure optimal uptime.
Designed by welders to handle material thicknesses from 0.002-inch to 0.040-inch, the Infinite WebŪ uses coaxial optics to verify proper positioning and provide precise and accurate splices. Both cutting and welding operations are automatic and non-contact.
"It's a quantum leap from the splicing equipment currently seen in metal converting plants," said company president Dave Hudson. "The system offers a user friendly, streamlined design with optimal safety features. The Infinite WebŪ automatically prepares the coil ends and delivers the finest weld possible each and every time the Start button is touched, all in less than 3 minutes."
"The Infinite WebŪ is poised to change the metal converting industry forever."
