EPITECH Products has released the Pro Weld ARC 3000 heavy-duty arc stud welding machine. It can weld 20mm threaded arc studs, 19mm through deck and 22mm shear connectors.
It is a fully-regulated stud welding power supply that is available in a single or dual-gun version. It is designed to complement the ARCFIX range of shear connectors and threaded arc studs. Both versions have the constant output feature that allows the unit to be used as a power source that can operate external stud welding control units.
The desired weld time and weld current can be dialled in before making a weld. After selecting the set up mode, the weld time and current can be adjusted if required and displayed on the front panel digital meters.
An electronic gun control circuit has been incorporated into the system. If a fault condition occurs due to a shorted gun solenoid or a faulty control cable the circuit will prevent the gun retriggering, eliminating damage to the printed circuit boards. A built-in chuck saver extends consumables. The ARC 3000 can weld from 6mm to 22mm studs with precisely and comes with a dampened heavy-duty gun.
Epitech also offers a 12 month warranty on the printed circuit boards and a three month warranty on the machine. It comes with 7.62m of earth cable and 15.24m of combination cable. The ARC 3000 is supported by a range of spare parts plus a trouble shooting repair and maintenance service shop with a stud-welding technician.
