Capacitor discharge welder family expanded
- September 8, 2019
Dengensha America has expanded its LinearWave Capacitor Discharge Welder product family with a new 50kA version.
The new, more affordable 50kA version combines a standard NDZ welder and a LinearWave controller.
The complete LinearWave Welder family now includes two 50kA versions, a 75kA welder (also recently introduced), a 100kA welder and a welder with 150kA capacity.
LinearWave Capacitor Discharge Welders are ideal for welding high strength steel, aluminum, and large projection and ring projection parts.
LinearWave technology combines the capabilities of a Capacitor Discharge Welder (CDW) with a 15,000 Hz Bipolar Medium Frequency Converter (MFC). The technology produces better quality parts, optimum weld nugget quality, weld parameters that are easier to set and energy savings, says Dengensha.
Better quality parts are provided because less thermal distortion and larger currents in shorter weld times are combined with the stability of a medium frequency converter. Better management of current flow provides optimum weld quality and weld nugget quality, while also generating energy savings.
LinearWave technology provides direct current configuration of weld current values which makes it easier to set parameters. It also maximizes waveform flexibility, which allows necessary parameter settings such as tempering, demagnetization, upslope, etc.
