The CD-A1000A from Amada Weld Tech Inc. (Monrovia, CA) is a 1,000 watt-second advanced capacitive discharge (CD) welder ideal for battery tab welding, honeycomb tacking, and welding of conductive terminals.
The unit is automation-ready and features dual-pulse output with control and monitoring of both pulses. The dual-pulse function helps overcome surface inconsistencies – such as dirt and oil contamination – during the first pulse and makes consistent welds with the second. A built-in process monitor measures peak current for both pulses; this value is displayed after each weld. Upper and lower limits can be set for both pulses to ensure weld consistency. An option to inhibit Pulse 2 if Pulse 1 is out of limits prevents weld blow-out. The process monitor helps operators assess performance with a color-coded bar graph that gives operators an instant weld history of in-limit/out-of-limit percentages.
Four pulse widths increase the range of welding applications and improve process optimization. Extremely efficient power electronics provide high repetition rates. Sixty-three schedules can be stored locally when a variety of welding processes are planned at the same station.
