Mavrix Welding Automation Inc. has redesigned its dual torch shredder disc rebuild system with an improved mounting system and open carriage design that reduces installation time to 30 minutes or less.
The dual torch system can apply 50 lb of weld metal per hour, significantly shortening downtime, the frequency of maintenance events and cost per ton of scrap or recycled material.
Mavrix custom builds its systems so that they can be integrated with all hammer-type shredders with disc rotors, including those from Metso-Texas Shredder, Riverside Engineering, Newell, TSC, Wendt and American Pulverizer. Mavrix has installed systems around the country and works closely with many manufacturers to ensure its products fit precisely to the shredder system.
The dual torch disc rebuild system includes two weld carriages that support the weld arm and adjustable open arc torches, wire feeders and 60-lb. coils of wire. The carriage with the new opening design allows the main beam and legs to be installed first and the carriages second, significantly reducing the weight of the system and making installation easier.
Mavrix has now consolidated the controls into a single hand-held pendant that allows the operator to be mobile yet maintain control. The pendant frees the operator to maintain a safe distance from welding fumes yet keep complete control over voltage, amperage, rotation speed and circumferential step-over. With remote Start/Stop, the operator can pause at any time to inspect the work and simply begin again without out worrying about “wire whiskers” because a built-in burn back circuit eliminates the welding wire sticking to the work piece.
The disc rebuild system is a perfect match with Stoody 110MC, a modified high chromium manganese steel metal cored wire designed for parts subject to severe impact loading. This wire allows the system to be used in a single wire welding solution; there is no need to build up with one product and then change over to a hard facing wire. A single wire solution reduces stocking requirements, and it also eliminates concern with residual hard facing material when returning for subsequent build events. Stoody 110MC has great welder appeal, low slag, goes down softly and work hardens to 55 HRC. Mavrix is an authorized distributor of Stoody wire products, each selected for specific customer applications.
