British company PWM, leading manufacturer of cold pressure welding equipment for over 30 years, is launching two new cold welding machines at wire 2016 (stand 9B41).
The ST40 air/hydraulic strip welder is designed for joining non-ferrous strip and tape used on armouring lines. The machine, for strip and tape up to a maximum width of 45mm (1.772) and a maximum cross sectional area of 33mm² (0.0514²), produces strong, reliable bonds stronger than the parent material without loss of electrical integrity. No set up time is required, and, like all PWM welders, the ST40 is low maintenance, simple and cost effective to operate. Mounted on a trolley, the ST40 can be wheeled easily to the work area, saving effort and reducing downtime.
The new HP180 air/hydraulic cold welder is a versatile machine for wire sizes 0.30mm to 1.80mm (.0118” to .071”). Supplied on a trolley, it can also be hand-held (within the limit of the air supply pipe) if required. Quick and easy to use, the HP180 enables the operator to produce strong consistent welds without effort.
Also on show will be PWM’s powerful energy-efficient electro/pneumatic and electro/hydraulic rod welders for joining large rod sections from 5mm to 30mm (.197” to 1.181”), and its comprehensive range of manual cold welders, for wire sizes 0.10mm to 5.00mm (.0039” to .197”). This includes lightweight hand-held machines, as well as larger portable models which can be used on a workbench or with a trolley.
