Control System optimizes high frequency welding.

August 6, 2012

Built upon Variable Frequency Current Fed Invertors, HAZControl(TM) Technology enables company to decide upon optimal weld parameters that define their brand, then uses predictive algorithms to calculate how power, frequency, vee length, and mill speed influence weld. If defined key variables change, HAZControl(TM) Technology guides operator back towards approved HAZ width and geometry. Variable frequency allows operator to control adjustment in 1 kHz increments.

Wireless Remote Welding Controls minimize tripping hazards.

October 18, 2010

With Wireless Remote Hand and Foot Controls, welders can reposition remote around work area without having to untangle cords. Foot control, designed specifically for TIG welding, allows operator to adjust amperage at point of use. Designed for Stick, TIG, MIG, and Flux Cored welding, hand control lets operator adjust parameters for joint configurations, electrodes, and wire types/sizes at point of use. Both eliminate extensions, cord failures, and associated downtime. Read More
