The HELIX M45 weld head is designed on the Power Wave® platform for advanced / multi-process capabilities. It embodies all of the same features, functions and ruggedness of the HELIX M85, but in a low-profile package. With a radial clearance of 4.5″ (114 mm), The HELIX M45 weld head easily allows welding in areas with physical constraints. Intuitive ergonomic design offers tool-less adjustments from a color scheme of knobs and handles. Color coding the latch and clutch handles has made mounting the weld head to a flat track or track ring almost effortless.
The M45 weld head’s digital platform automatically calibrates the motion axes, requiring no manual intervention from an operator or technician. This platform offers many advantages including simple troubleshooting, go or no-go type testing, and lightweight, cost-effective cabling. Built in is the ability to make upgrades for future technology enhancements, extending the life of the system and minimizing product obsolescence.
The HELIX M45 is well equipped, incorporating a 2″ (51 mm) torch height stroke length and a 5″ (127 mm) oscillation stroke length. Extended stroke lengths are available from 5″ (127 mm) to 15″ (381 mm) for the torch height stroke and up to 24″ (610 mm) for the oscillation stroke length.
- With a low radial clearance of 4.5 in. (114 mm), the HELIX M45 weld head allows for digitally controlled, precision welding in areas of limited space and physical constraints
- The lower profile weld head was designed so it can be quickly set up as far as five inches (127 mm) from the weld joint without affecting oscillation, offering greater flexibility
- Designed on the Power Wave platform for advanced, multi-process capabilities, this device also features a pivoting torch height assembly which provides perpendicular height control to the puddle face
- Optional on-board wire feeders are also available for GMAW / FCAW and GTAW welding applications
- Multiple toolless torch adjustment options, giving greater control of the weld puddle for more complex welds
