A Suspended Spot Welding Controller to Reduce My Costs!
Suspended Spot Welding has become very popular among contractors and manufacturers because it provides a fast way to weld joints in heavy-duty products. A shielded gas gun, welding electrodes and a control box are the basic components of the system. The shielded gas gun allows for constant current while simultaneously shielding the workers from any harmful particles and/or dust that may otherwise damage their eyes or lungs. Welding electrodes allow the user to continuously charge the welding current even when not being used, while a welding control box helps the user to program the parameters of the machine. Since the welding current can be automatically switched on and off as per need, the operator need not worry about manually starting and stopping the machines. A constant current control box also helps the operator to easily adjust the welding current.
This is an important part of your industrial equipment because it controls the amount of welding current that is channeled to the welding machines. With the help of a controller, you can adjust the current to suit the needs of different projects. You can also program the machine and its accessories so that they work in unison in production. Different welding machines have different settings so choosing the correct one for your work should not be a problem.
The most common welding equipment with this feature is the proportional valve and the variable valve. A proportional valve is similar to a standard valve but has two valves for controlling the welding current. The first valve controls the welding pressure automatically and can be set to regulate the flow of material without human supervision. If you have a heavy duty steam shop then this is the perfect unit for you to purchase. There are many manufacturers who manufacture these units and if you research well then you can find a reliable company providing both consumer and professional units.
While a proportional valve works in a way that it starts regulating the welding currents automatically based on the settings, the variable valve is manually adjusted by a technician during the welding operation. As the name indicates, the variable valve is capable of switching between fixed and variable settings. The most common applications of the two units is spot welding and blanking operations. Both of these welding operations often require large amounts of control and therefore the use of a proportional valve is essential in such cases.
If you are working in an environment where there are varying welding currents, then using a controller with the latest and advanced technology features would be a good option. Some of the best units on the market include the MRCT Pro 2.5 watt controller, the MRCT Mini II and the MRCT Pro SSQ. The MRCT II is equipped with preload protection circuitry, which prevents overheating of the welds and maintains constant arc and stream voltage. Another useful feature of this controller is its user-friendly interface and user-programmable features. It is also equipped with a fully isolated control circuit for minimal arc distortion and excessive voltage drop.
If you are working with a heavy duty MIG welder or other high performance automatic welding equipment, then it is imperative that your welding current is controlled through a proportional valve. The MRCT II SSQ also offers variable control voltage capacity and current control. However, it has been reported that the SSQ failed to properly lower the welding current when the welding current was extremely strong. If you are using a MRCT for the first time and you are not sure whether or not to opt for a controller with preload protection and/or current limiting, then you should consider buying a MRCT II.
