Press Type Welders
WSI Series and TECNA Welders available from Weld Systems Integrators
Press type welders from Weld Systems Integrators are among the most versatile resistance welder. They operate different than rocker arm welders. With a rocker arm welder, the lower arm (usually adjustable up and down) is stationary during the weld. The upper arm is not adjustable, but pivots into the weld position, forming the weld circuit.
WSI Series and TECNA Press welders on the other hand use either platens or weld arms. The upper electrode and weld head move vertically. The lower electrode is adjusted vertically, allowing for different electrode gaps. Furthermore, the lower electrode remains in a fixed position during the weld process. Common uses include fastener and stud welding because of this vertical action.
Projection welding applications often use platens with t-slots for fixture and tool mounting. Weld arm configurations are more commonly used for spot welding applications. Platens and weld arms are most often made of copper or class 2 copper alloy.
