PWM, leading designer and manufacturer of high performance cold welding equipment and dies, will showcase an upgraded version of the powerful P1500 model for joining large rod sections at wire 2010.
The largest machine in PWM’s range, the P1500 has a capacity of 15mm to 25mm (.590" to .984") diameter copper and 15mm to 30mm (1.181") aluminium. The machine’s new upgraded hydraulic operating system is designed to provide a quieter, smoother weld operation and minimise oil usage, and the P1500 also incorporates a new user-friendly operator keypad. Developed to weld large rod sections quickly and cost effectively, the P1500 produces strong consistent welds every time, minimising downtime and materials wastage. Power consumption is limited to the hydraulic pump motor, making the P1500 very energy efficient and economical to operate. No set up time is involved and the weld cycle takes only minutes with automatic de-flashing on completion.
PWM’s EP500 rod welder will also be on show. This electro/pneumatic model has a capacity of 5mm to 12.50mm (.197" to .492") copper and 5mm to 15mm (.590") aluminum.
PWM’s versatile trolley-mounted cold welders can be wheeled quickly to the work area, saving time and effort. Portable models include the air/hydraulic HP100 and HP200 machines, capable of welding wire up to 6.50mm (.256") diameter; and the pneumatic P101 for wire from 1mm to 5mm (.040" to .197").
PWM will also exhibit its manual cold welders with capacities ranging from 0.10mm (.0039") up to 3.60mm (.141") copper and 5.00mm (.197") aluminium. The range includes lightweight, hand-held machines, ideal for welding fine wire in confined spaces; durable bench-mounted welders and a bench/trolley-mounted model, the best-selling M101.
PWM manufactures industry standard dies for wire sizes between 0.08mm (.0039") and 6.35mm (.257"). All PWM dies are individually hand-made to the tightest possible tolerances by skilled craftsmen in PWM’s own UK workshops. Dies can also be manufactured to suit round or profile wires and rods according to customers' specifications.
