The CD-A1000A is ideal for battery tab welding, honeycomb tacking and welding of conductive terminalsClick image to enlargeAmada Weld Tech has released its CD-A1000A, a 1000 watt-second advanced capacitive discharge (CD) welder.

Ideal for battery tab welding, honeycomb tacking and welding of conductive terminals, this next generation CD welder is the latest in a long line of CD welders manufactured by Amada.

The unit is automation-ready and features dual pulse output with control and monitoring of both pulses.

The dual pulse function helps overcome surface inconsistencies—such as dirt and oil contamination—during the first pulse and makes consistent welds with the second.

A built-in process monitor measures peak current for both pulses; this value is displayed after each weld. Upper and lower limits can be set for both pulses to ensure weld consistency. An option to inhibit Pulse 2 if Pulse 1 is out of limits prevents weld blow out. The process monitor helps operators assess performance with a color coded bar graph that gives operators an instant weld history of in limit/out of limit percentages.

It offers up to four selectable pulse widths, increasing the range of welding applications and improving process optimization. Extremely efficient power electronics provide high repetition rates. 63 schedules can be stored locally when a variety of welding processes are planned at the same station.
