PWM presents high performance cold welders at wire 2008 at wire 2008

British manufacturer PWM, which designs and manufactures high
performance cold welding equipment and dies for the world market, will
exhibit its full range of manual and powered welders at wire 2008 on stand 09 B41. Visitors will be able to view the cold weld technique and try out the machines for themselves.

PWM manufactures machines for a variety of applications, with the range
including small hand-held, manual machines, bench-mounted and portable trolley-mounted models and large, freestanding rod welders. Clean,
'green' and economical to operate, all PWM welders use the multiple
upset technique to effect a fast, reliable weld on non-ferrous
materials, without heat, flux or fillers. No fumes are generated, no set
up time is required and the weld created is stronger than the parent
material.

PWM will present upgraded versions of its best-selling HP100 and HP200 welders. Equipped with ergonomically designed trolleys with sloping platforms to give the operator a clear view of the weld area, these portable air/hydraulic powered machines provide an effortless weld on copper/aluminium wire and strip from 1.00 to 6.50mm diameter. The head of the HP100 model can be detachable, enabling welding to take place where space is very limited. Power consumption is minimal: the machines require only a supply of compressed air.

A new automatic version of the HP100 will be launched at the show.

PWM's hand-held, manually operated models, the M10, M25 and M30, are all comfortable to hold and simple to use. With capacities ranging from
0.10mm to 1.80mm, these machines are ideal for welding wire quickly in
confined spaces. Larger manually operated models on show will include
the durable bench-mounted BM10 and BM30, and the M101, a versatile
machine which can be bench-mounted or supplied with a trolley, enabling
it to be wheeled directly to the weld location. A pneumatic version of
the M101, the P101, is also available.

Large capacity rod welders on show will include the powerful electro/pneumatic EP500, with a capacity of 5.00 to 12.50mm copper and 5.00 to 15mm aluminium, and the compact hydraulic P1000, capable of welding rod sections up to 16.00mm copper and 20.00mm aluminium. Power consumption is minimal and these machines are dependable and easy to operate, with automatic de-flashing on completion of the weld cycle.
