What is MFDC welding?
MFDC welders [ mid-frequency direct current ], inverter power supplies, and weld controls FOR SALE at Weld Systems Integrators
MFDC stands for Mid-Frequency Direct Current. MFDC welding uses power inverters to convert your AC power supply into inverted high-frequency power output.
AC welding (alternating current) reverses its direction many times per second. A 60-hertz current will change its polarity 60 times every second. MFDC has a constant polarity flowing in one direction. AC @ 60-hertz input is converted to a high frequency 400-4000 Hz input to the transformer.
What are the benefits of MFDC welding?
WELD SPEED: MFDC welding is faster than AC welding. MFDC welds can be completed in 2 / 1,000 of a second. That’s nearly 30 times faster than an AC welder.
WELD QUALITY: MFDC welding offers increased weld strength and reliability. The increase in speed provided by MFDC welding produces fewer deformities in the metal being joined. Additionally, making welds more quickly, MFDC welders reduce deformation and burn-through caused by prolonged heat affecting the area around the weld nugget. The result is a cleaner / stronger weld.
WELD EFFICIENCY: MFDC reduces power requirements. MFDC welders use a power inverter and capacitors that store electrical charge, rather than actively drawing all of their power from your mains. Power consumption can be reduced by as much as 35%.
WELD CURRENT: Direct current systems utilizing SCRs have a rise time prior to their steady state. The MFDC is very responsive. It’s possible to create full-phase firing during the natural rise time to lessen the rise time.
WELD CONTROL: MFDC welders utilize IGBTs, for current switching. These units are turned on and off at a rate of 400-4000 times per second. By controlling this rate, the MFDC can very accurately determine the current.
