Suspended Spot Welding Controller
Suspended Spot Welding is the only Welding process that makes use of two-piece welding equipment – a Welding table and a Welding torch. The main difference between a stand and suspended Welding machine is with where the torch or arc comes from. The stand welder welds as stated above by placement of a welding torch on a piece of steel and a flexible piece of spot is held between the torch and the tip of a welder’s welding rod. The flexible part of the piece of steel is called the tip.
In normal circumstances, the torch is not held at the tip. Instead, a current is run from the welding machine’s current control. The welding current passes through the welding rod tip and attaches to the welding current control. This current then feeds a thin metal electrode to the spot welding gun. A spot welding controller or a constant current control determines how much current to feed to the gun.
There are many benefits when using a spot welding gun over traditional methods of welding. One benefit is that there is no need to continuously feed flux into the welded area. Flux can build up and ruin the welds, if this happens over. With the spot welding machine, the filler wire never needs to be re-fused. This means less interruption to your day-to-day schedule.
An automatic calibration device is installed on most repair welding machines. This device allows you to manually set the parameters for the degree of heat resistance and taper setting that best suits your welding requirements. Most companies require that their welders have a spot welding controller to perform these functions. If your repair shop uses a manual controller, then you need an automatic calibration device so that you can manually adjust these parameters as needed.
A common factor between standard and automatic welders is that they both use electric arc welding torches to conduct the welding process. While both types of welds are effective, they differ in how they transfer the energy, as well as their resulting temperatures and stresses. Standard welds use direct electrical current to induce the arc and transfer heat. Automatic welds use conductive heat and pressure to induce the arc. Standard welds are easier to control and more accurate, but an automatic weld will produce a much higher quality weld that is more consistent.
In order to accurately control the parameters of your suspended spot welding controller, you must install a software program for your machine. This software will allow you to see a graphical representation of what your weld puddle will look like in different environments. It also allows you to make precise adjustments to your weld puddle as needed. Automatic welders commonly come with a software package that also controls the temperature and current of their welding gun.
