Friction Welding

DEDICATED ENGINE VALVE WELDER

Friction Welding

Forge force 3000kg     Model Number NC4000

Direct Drive welder (2007). Subject of a cancelled order this machine is a fully automatic, closed loop, NC controlled machine tooled to weld engine valves head to pin. It feature our latest NC close loop control with full process monitoring and comes complete with 8 hour capacity pin feed hopper and vibratory exit conveyor. Key features of the machine are flash removal via special split clipper, concentric welding to less than 0.2mm TIR with CpK 1.67 and floor to floor cycle time of less than 9 seconds. Ideal machine for any valve plant wanting to weld head to pin

Price £180,000 ex works in current configuration

Possible other uses:
Any small diameter Friction weld, pin to pin , tube to tube, pin to plate etc will require special tooling at extra cost POA.

Friction Welding

AIR BAG CANISTER MACHINE

Forge force 12,000kg     Model Number GBF/MTI Model 15

Friction Welding

Direct Drive welder (Air Bag canisters)(1996). When it was removed from site it was a fully working model, producing passenger side airbags in steel with a 63 mm diameter and 2mm wall. The machine had no tolerance issues.

Friction Welding

The machine was working 3 shifts at 20 hours per day for 6 days per week.
The machine was installed new as part of a package of 4 machines and has been used now for 10 years. It has been well maintained and is considered by the customer as one of the most reliable pieces of plant in the factory.

When the machine was removed it was carefully dismantled and all hydraulic connections and electrical connections were tagged. Guarding not available

The Electrical cabinets are supplied with the equipment but as the control was interlinked to the customers business system and controlled using a dedicated and special 286PC it is the opinion of FPE/Gatwick that the machine will not run with this control and it is recommended that a new control system is fitted

Resistance Welding

AIR BAG IGNITOR- PROJECTION WELDER

Resistance Welding Resistance Welding

The equipment consists of a substantial ‘L’ shaped frame with precision machined horizontal bed, and vertical mounting surfaces. Mounted to the top-plate of the frame is a precision weld head with substantial twin rail linear guided top electrode guide system, capable of delivering a weld force in excess of 700Kgf. (1500lbf) The electrode assembly is from M100 hard chrome copper electrode material with suitable datum locations to control the orientation of the ignitor.

The component nest is fitted with light spring fingers to accept the canister from operator, and hold it against the ‘V’ location. The slide has a removable base packing piece to enable different length canisters to be accommodated, placing the end cap in a similar position with respect to the machine.

Resistance Welding Resistance Welding

The component is held against the peripheral location via substantial pneumatically operated De-Starco over-centre clamp unit.

Below the location, suitable electrodes are fitted to locate around the majority of the airbag canister to provide a symmetrical current path through the end cap.

The weld head is fitted with a load cell mounted between the pneumatic operating cylinder and the secondary welding circuit to provide a direct reading of the electrode weld force.

The weld head is operated from a B. F. Entron WS700, synchronous AC weld controller mounted adjacent to the cell electrical enclosure.

Price £21,000 ex works in current configuration
