Seam welders like this 10 ft Airline Used Seam Welder are designed to give you the ability to quality welded seams by providing clamping, cooling, and a backing surface on which to weld. By having a clamping device that holds the sheet material near the welded seam, the material has little room to move and twist out of position while the seam is being welded. Cooling is another benefit of having the clamping fingers so close to the welded seam. The fingers act like a heat sink which provides a means to pull the excess heat energy away from the part to minimize the heat affected zone (HAZ) thus reducing the risk of warping the material from heat. Additionally the backing bar provides a means of cooling the seam while also providing the necessary support under the seam to permit the welding process to run hotter without burning holes in the base material. In most cases this allows a welding procedure to be used which results in the full penetration weld.
This seam welder will get new fingers and a new mandrel once we rebuild this machine to fit your application. A typical mandrel for seam welder this length would be 8″ in diameter. We can build the standard mandrel or have a special step mandrel built. This step mandrel can allow smaller diameters to be welded on a portion of this seam welding machine’s 120″ length capacity. While building this new mandrel, we can incorporate a water cooling element which will help remove heat from the backing bar. This cooling element also helps to regulate the temperature of the mandrel which permits consistent welds from the beginning of the shift to the last weld of the day.
This machine, as with all inventory we rebuild, comes complete with a warranty. We also offer training here in our facility at no cost to you. You can choose to buy this or any of our machines in the as-is condition. We just encourage you to come to our facility and inspect the machine before doing so.
