Capacitive Discharge Welders: 125/300/1000ADP

New generation Advanced Dual Pulse Capacitive Discharge  welders with pulse monitoring, limits and unique process tools for improved weld quality. The ADP Series are ideal for welding conductive materials in applications such as battery spot welding, tab welding, honeycomb welding and more.

  • Built-in current monitor
  • Set pulse limits with second pulse inhibit
  • Four pulse widths with fast rise times
  • Automatic, programmable polarity switching
  • Upslope function
  • Quick view color screen

 

Key Features

  • Dual pulse function – Overcomes surface inconsistencies
  • Built-in monitor – Internal sensor measures peak current for both pulses for process monitoring
  • Process monitor – Color coded bar graph on RUN screen provides instant weld history of In Limits/ Out of Limits percentages to assess process performance
  • Set test pulse and pulse limits with inhibit option – Upper and lower limits can be set for both pulses, with option of inhibit Pulse 2 if Pulse 1 is out of limits to prevent weld blow out
  • Upslope function – Gradual ramping of weld energy to alleviate weld splash – a first for CD welders
  • Polarity programming by pulse (125ADP, 300ADP) – Automatic polarity switching between pulses provides even heating between electrodes and increases electrode life
  • Four software selectable pulse widths (125ADP, 300ADP) – Increases the range of welding applications and improves process optimization. 1000ADP has three jumper selectable pulse widths
  • High resolution 6.5 inch color display – Large clear display with all weld information visible on RUN screen
  • High repetition rate – Efficient power electronics provide improved repetition rates

 

Typical Applications

Battery Tab Welding
Tack Welding of Carrier Strip
Conductive Terminal Attachment
