The PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic high and low pressure welding machine from Worldpoly Australia sets a new benchmark in weld quality.

The development of the rugged PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic is a result of over 50 years of PE pipe and welding expertise along with three years of focussed R&D with Bosch Rexroth.

Designed to provide high quality, consistent welds fast, the PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic welding machines deliver exceptional welding capacity, superior quality control, automated operational consistency, data logging capability, local serviceability through the use of Bosch Rexroth hydraulics and controls, rugged construction, and significant reduction in welding times. 

Tensile tests have shown average high pressure weld strength of 100.2% of the host pipe with zero brittle failure, compared with an average of 95% from imported machines. 

Available in a choice of three models including Trench, Wheeled AllTerrain and Track options, PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic is designed, engineered and manufactured in Australia, comes with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty, and is suitable for any application. 

Key features of the PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic welding machines include automatic operation of the welding process, PLC control of temperature, time and pressure for the entire operation through intuitive controls, fully automatic operation from bead-up to end of cooling cycle, as well as operator safety through the control system and the operation of clamp locking without operator contact. 

Offering the ability to weld at high or low pressure, PolyForce630 Series 2 Automatic includes Worldpoly Australia’s Collision Avoidance System, which eliminates the potential to crash the heating plate, facing tool and clamps, and also features pipe movement detection to avoid slippage during welding and cooling cycles. 

The tracked base features a 1500 RPM low-noise 64 db Cummins Onan diesel generator with controls also on the operator side; Bosch Rexroth hydraulics with two-speed motion easily climbing over 30 degrees; Bosch supplied wireless controls; wired backup controls; and pipe lifters on the front and rear. 

The wireless controls maximise safety and keep the operator away from the machine. When the signal is broken for any reason or the operator drops the controller, the tracks stop immediately. Should the wireless controller be lost or broken, an emergency wired control is supplied. The independent base can also be used as a site workhorse.

The optional wheeled base in the AllTerrain model provides offset steering for pipeline work, pipe lifters and a rugged platform for welding.
