Amada Miyachi America, Inc.’s new CD-A series of capacitive discharge power supplies features dual pulse output control, internal pulse monitoring, optional polarity switching and is automation capable. They are ideal for battery tab welding, interconnects, honeycomb tacking and fine wire to pad applications.
The new units offer consistent welding output for repeatable results with ultrafast rise time for conductive material welding. Fully controllable dual pulse output provides pulse shaping with four discrete pulse lengths, programmable squeeze and hold times, and adjustable pulse separation.
Individual settings for positive, negative, or alternating polarity helps balance weld nuggets and overcome the Peltier effect, as well as extend electrode life. Pair the CD-A with an Amada Miyachi weld head with EZ-AIR operation to control weld force.
The CD-A is automation ready and can be easily integrated into production lines. The units can be programmed to communicate with a host computer or with an automation control system. Operators can set and store up to 63 schedules to quickly change between weld parameters. A schedule chaining feature lets users automatically switch between two different schedules. The power supplies enable rapid fire between pulses for quick welding of adjacent locations.
Two models are available, both offering programmable squeeze time and hold time, polarity switching, internal limits and external communication. They are offered in 110-120VAC or 220-240VAC, single phase, 50/60 Hz. CD-A125A is a 125-Watt second unit and Model CD-A300A is a 300-Watt second unit. The CD-A series replaces Amada Miyachi America’s ADP and DP series of capacitive power supplies.
