TPS-CMT

System

/ Wirefeed unit with 4-roller drive for feeding the filler metal precisely and smoothly all the way from the wire-spool to the workpiece. / Integrated robot welding torch, equipped with a gearless and highly dynamic AC servo motor that moves the welding wire forward and back up to 90 times a second. It ensures accurate wirefeed and constant contact pressure. / Two moveable half-shells keep the contact surfaces and the contact forces between the contacting system and the welding wire exactly in the defined target range. The contact tip abrades uniformly – which minimises the adverse and hard-to-calculate consequences of uneven wear upon the process. Contec is suitable for all diameters and materials of wire. / The rugged and reliable cooling unit is designed to dovetail with the modular concept of the welding system as a whole. It ensuresoptimum water cooling of the welding torch. Digitally controlled MIG/MAG welding power source<br>/ The fully digitised microprocessor-controlled inverter power source ensures unrivalled precision in the welding process, with exact reproducibility and superlative welding properties. / The wire buffer decouples the front and rear wire-drives from one another and ensures smooth wire travel.

Highlights

  • Excellent gap-bridging ability

    / With CMT Advanced, gap bridgeability increases on e.g. 2 mm aluminium from 1 mm to 2.5 mm as compared with pulsed-arc welding.

  • 50 % less dilution of base and filler metal

    / Dilution of base and filler metal is as much as 50 % lower, cutting costs when cladding.

  • Ultra-high-precision weld process

    / Boasting 100 % reproducibility and the best process-control you’ll find anywhere in the world, CMT opens up radically new fields of application like CMT Pin and CMT Print.

  • Extremely low spattering

    / Spattering on e.g. steel is cut by as much as 99 % compared to pulsed-arc and dip-transfer welding.

  • Minimal distortion

    / The lower heat input leads to less distortion on e.g. thinner steel. This reduces the need for weld preparation and finishing work.

  • Exceptionally low thermal input

    / Up to 90 % less thermal input than with TIG cold-wire, e.g. when using CMT on aluminium

  • Higher welding speeds

    / Up to 10 times faster for the same seam quality and same sidewall-wetting behaviour, e.g. on chrome-nickel – with excellent seam appearance.
