The Equatip dual tip holder is a smaller version of the Equa-Press holder
. It is more compact, and is more economical for those applications where it will work equally well. An even smaller device, the Equatip adapter (not water-cooled) is shown in box below.
Using the Equatip holder, both tips contact the work squarely, because tip axes remain parallel to direction of force (unlike the Teeter-Tip adapters). An internal roller equalizes current and pressure between the two electrodes, and will compensate for work height variations up to 1/16″.
The holders are ordered with either 1″ or 1-1/2″ spacing between barrels, and with tip sockets to accept either male Tuffcap caps (5/8″ dia.) or straight No. 4 RW electrodes. (Bent tips are not recommended.) The distance between welds can be varied by rotating offset-nose tips in the barrels.
Equatip holders can be supplied with straight shanks for arm mounting, a tapered adapter shank for holder mounting, or a cylinder adapter shank to be clamped to a cylinder rod. Clamps
are sold separately.
Equatip holders can be used with forces up to 1000 lbs.
The Light Duty Equatip adapter works like the Heavy Duty Equatip holder, but it is not water-cooled and is meant for less demanding jobs. It costs less, and it’s a little smaller, barrels being 5/8″ apart. It uses RWMA male cap taper #4 electrodes
