Operator foot pressure on foot pedal operates arms and tip closure. Tip pressure adjustable through the variable spring compression in foot pedal linkage. Frequency and speed of operation determined by operator. Electronic timer controls weld time Automatically.
Air Pressure is utilized to replace operator actuation. An air cylinder actuates the arm and tip closure which is triggered by a foot switch. An air pressure regulator and Air Filter is provided. The top pressure is adjustable through a special Air Pressure Sensing Control which actuates the weld cycle time. A two stage heavy-duty foot switch is connected to the spot welder with portable cable and plug-in, allowing large radius of operation for even the largest sheet metal sections. Two stage design allows closure of tips only, further depression triggers weld cycle. Foot switch can be unplugged and removed to prevent unauthorized operation of machine.
Incorporates all the features of the air operated model except an Automatic Sequence Programmer is added consisting of four electronic timed functions - squeeze, weld, cool, off. This model is outstanding where high production, precision repeatability and fully automatic operations are required. The sequence programmer has a repeat and non-repeat control. The repeat setting will allow continuous repeated weld cycles as long as foot switch is depressed. The non-repeat setting will perform complete welding cycle on each depression of foot switch. A test switch is also provided causing all functions to be active except the actual welding allowing for inspection or set up of weld sequence program. The foot switch can be replaced with an actuating switch on customer's production fixture allowing a completely automatic unmanned welding operation.
