New Automatic Tip Changer, Tip Checker and Tip Dressers
Stillwater Technologies, Inc. announces the availability of a new tip changer, new tip checker and new tip dressers:
o Tip Changer (pneumatic) - changes both the upper and lower tips automatically in robotic resistance welding applications. The changer reduces costs by eliminating manual tip changes. Ensures consistent change of tips. The cycle time on the tip change (set of caps) is less than 25 seconds and a sensing device ensures tip removal and installation. Available in all types of configurations 5/8, ½, and ¾ inch.
o Tip Checker - checks the tip electrically to ensure a "full dress" has occurred. Ensures weld face size and results in quality welds. Provides for a continuity check through the robot and able to provide an alert in the case of improper or no dress.
o New Tip Dressers
o Pneumatic "Dual Head" (model A2400-2) - offers the ability to "dress" two different types of tips with one dresser e.g. dresses the side of one tip and dresses the face and side of the other tip. Light weight. The dual dresser is less expensive than purchasing two individual tip dressers.
