The Bortech BoreWelder was created in 1982, after 600 hours of development and testing by the operator of a machine shop that offered heavy equipment repair for local construction contractors. The BoreWelder was the answer to the obvious need for a machine to rebuild worn holes on large parts.
Bortech BoreWelders produce a weld overlay on the worn section of the workpiece. The workpiece can then be machined back to its original size.
Automated BoreWelders are superior to hand-welding. They are faster, provide smoother weld, and allow the operator access to small or hard-to-reach bores.
Bortech BoreWelders also provide superior repair to inserting bushings or sleeves. They won’t distort or weaken the base metal, and provide a longer lasting solution
The Bortech BW3000 boasts the greatest control over welding parameters in the industry. Utilizing the patented ‘Step’ process, the BW3000 can weld a complete 360* in a single plane, before ‘stepping’ to the next plane. This technology allows for complete weld coverage at the start and finish of the bore. Adjusting the size of the step allows the user to control bead-to-bead overlap, or to weld in either the clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Combined with adjustments to travel, speed, and wire speed (amperage), you have complete flexibility over welding parameters for your most challenging applications.
Stepping technology also enables:
– Auto-Skip – designate ‘weld-only’ or ‘skip-weld’ sections for working with – keyways and slots.
– Pie Mode – bi-directional welding in only a section of the bore for correcting out-of-round conditions.
– Carriage Return – similar to Pie Mode, but only welds in one-direction while ‘rapid returning’ in the other direction, for welding always ‘uphill’ or ‘downhill’
Bortech BoreWelders are portable and can be used in both field and shop repairs. Automated BoreWelders mount to the workpiece and interface with all CLIMAX boring bars. One quick set-up allows the user to align the BoreWelder and the boring bar giving the operator the ability to weld one bore, while machining another!
