Desktop Resistance Weld Checker

Amada Miyachi America., a manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting and micromachining equipment and systems, offers its MM-400A desktop resistance weld checker. With the MM-400A, operators can monitor and manage key welding variables that result in changes in weld heat, including current, voltage, time, force and displacement. The compact unit supports AC, DC inverter, AC inverter, transistor and capacitive discharge resistance welding technologies.

The MM-400A is suitable for use in process development, where it can be used to correlate waveform and numeric data with process results and provide detailed weld data for process optimization and validation. In a production environment, it reduces scrap by detecting drifts in the weld process and alerting operators before process failure. The MM-400A also reduces the frequency of destructive testing and provides an independent way of monitoring the welding power supply.

The MM-400A features a user interface and color touch panel display. An envelope function allows the operator to set upper and lower segmented or continuous limits around the entire waveform. The seam welding mode monitors AC current and voltage or DC voltage for up to five minutes. The unit provides ISO17657-compliant measurement for current (when used with available ISO-compliant toroidal coil) and offers Ethernet (TCP/IP) and RS-232/485 communication. Pre-weld displacement measures workpiece thickness prior to welding. Multi-language support includes English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, German and French.

Available accessories include shunt resistor force sensors, a built-in force sensor, displacement sensors and weld through sensors that offer simultaneous measurement of applied force.
