A Suspended Spot Welding machine offers many benefits to the welder. When comparing standard hand held welding machines against a standard Suspended spot welding machine, you’ll discover that these welds provide superior quality welds that are capable of being produced into a heavier, stronger, and more durable fabrication. If a hand held weld comes with poor weld quality and/or is of poor quality steel, then the weld will not hold and will certainly fall apart within a short period of time. On the other hand, a Welded Stainless Steel Suspended Spot Welding Machine can offer weld quality similar to that of a larger hand held weld station. It is also capable of offering a much wider weld zone which allows for a higher degree of customization in any given project. This is possible because of the ability to create thinner gauge sheets in a similar amount of time when using the Welded Suspended Welding Machines.
Another benefit of this type of weld is the fact that it is equipped with an automatic calibration mechanism. When purchasing a Welded Stainless Steel Suspended Welding Machine, always look for an automatic calibration controller because these units are made with a ball-bearing mechanism that allows for precise, accurate readings. These units are also designed to work without human intervention. The ability to work without human intervention means less mistakes and less human suffering.
Many individuals are still somewhat skeptical about welding or making metal, especially when working with what they perceive to be exotic metals such as tungsten carbide and stainless steel. This skepticism is understandable; with the current state of the art technologies available today, one would think that making the jump from traditional hand soldered joints to welded products would be quite simple. However, the world of stainless has changed over the last several years. Many stainless steel manufacturers have begun utilizing automatic welding techniques in their production process.
One of the most popular uses for welding equipment today is using Automatic Spot Welding Machines with the added benefits of spot taping and an automatic tip dresser. Taped joints are the most common type of welding used in applications where a lower tolerance level is required. When working with thinner materials, the application of tungsten electrodes requires a more precise joint angle than the standard arc welding technique. Automatic torch welding machines coupled with spot taping techniques can be used to evenly distribute the electrode heat across the joint, which eliminates the need for manual adjustment of the joint angle.
The welder welds much better than the standard hand welder at cutting the joints because the gun allows the welder to place more force on a single line. The difference in overall performance can be seen in the life span of the equipment. While it takes longer to weld, the welds done with the Automatic Suspended Spot Welding Machines are stronger, more consistent, and less susceptible to wear and tear. The gun also allows the welder to work with lighter gauges of metal because the heavier gauges become too hard to bend by the increased pressure from the welding gun. The use of the tips on the suspended welders reduces the slippage and makes the weld easier on the welder.
The control methods are similar to the standard welders and come in two forms: a proportional valve and direct control. The proportional valve is the most commonly used in modern day welders and is often programmed through a computer program. The controller is an internal electronic device that is controlled by the welding current. Some models allow you to vary the welding current through the use of a digital readout variable resistor. You may also find controllers that allow you to monitor the weld puddle and gas mixture levels.
