SynchroFeed - welding splatters were things of yesterday

SynchroFeed - welding splatters were things of yesterday

The Japanese welding system manufacturer, OTC DAIHEN EUROPE GmbH, has developed a special pioneering role in automated MIG / MAG welding, thanks to new SynchroFeed technology. Through the new procedure, the company meets up with the increased demands from industries, to weld medium and, in particular, thin sheets without deformation, to take into account of the gap tolerance and, above all, to drastically reduce welding spatter.

Without the precision of the wire feed, spatter-free welding would not be possible. With the same energy balance, SynchroFeed can introduce higher amounts of wire and thus closing larger gaps. In the case of narrower columns, the welding process with SynchroFeed is significantly faster. The use of SynchroFeed requires a complete welding robot system, consisting of OTC robots (FD-B4), welding current source (OTC Welbee P500L), push feeder unit, wire buffer, high-performance exchangeable neck burner and robot control. All components later communicate with each other at the required speed.
