Application Engineering

Whether you require tooling to adapt a standard weld head to fit your application, or a if your application requires a completely new weld head we can help.

All design is completed ‘in-house’ here in Derby with full 3D CAD capability and our network of subcontract manufacturing facilities provide all the necessary CNC machining, EDM wiring, electro-plating and hardening services required to complete a project.

A selection of recent projects are detailed for reference:

Modified OSK21-C to accept a tight access aerospace component, tube size is 0.250ā€ (6.35mm), the assembly comprises ā€˜Sā€™ shape tube with a fitting welded at each end. Photo right shows a batch of welded assemblies

IBW weld head for a ‘back face’ tube to tubesheet joint on an HP Heater for power generation. Inset photos show a completed test sample weld (as welded) and IBW weld head positioned at the front face for welding.

Auto loading mechanism for an OSK65-W weld head, mechanism has PLC controlled pneumatic actuation for loading and clamping of components. An Orbitec Tigtronic controller was fully integrated with the loading mechanism to provide a single operator interface. All mechanical, pneumatic, electronic and PLC software design was completed ‘in-house’. Photo shows some completed welds.
