15 Apr AUTO BORE WELDING VS. HAND WELDING
The BORTECH automated welding systems are designed to attach to several CLIMAX boring machine mounting fixtures, allowing a single setup for both welding and machining operations. These automated welders offer high-quality, affordable welding performance for bore, flange, and valve repair.
Improved Safety & Productivity
- Remote pendant controls minimize the welder’s exposure to harmful fumes, heat, and flash.
- Eliminates tedious, repetitive motion leading to welder fatigue and injury.
- Welds in areas that are difficult or impossible to reach.
- The welder is free to work on other jobs while automated welding is taking place, significantly improving productivity.
- Welds in bores that are too small to weld by hand and are too large to weld with good consistency in a timely manner.
- Cut job time in half by welding one set of bores while you’re machining the other.
Versatile, Efficient, Repeatable
- Weld in the horizontal or vertical axis more consistently than hand welding.
- Operates at a lower voltage with no starts & stops, maintaining a very consistent arc length.
- Arc time increases 100% vs. hand welding methods.
- Uses far fewer consumables vs. hand welding.
- Smooth, consistent welds reduce machining time by up to 50% – which also reduces wear & tear on your tooling, boring equipment, and consumables.
- Automatic out-of-round correction capability (pie mode and carriage return) means there’s no pre-boring needed to manually fill a void or to oversize the bore to make it round).
- Interfaces with CLIMAX BB3000, BB4500 and BB5000 Boring Machines (one set-up operation).
BORTECH automated welding systems provide you with higher quality welds, as well as substantial time & cost savings over hand welding methods. The auto bore welders are available for sale or rent.
