What’s New at Tempco

New Press Style Resistance Welders

Resistance spot welding is used to weld two or more sheets together by applying both pressure and electrical current to generate heat. As the copper alloy electrodes create heat, the metal workpieces fuse together in a controlled manner, delivering welds that are extremely clean and accurate.

Spot Welder 125 KVA PS2 Model

Tempco’s new industrial spot welding equipment utilizes copper alloy electrodes that provide high thermal conductivity and low electrical resistance to create precision welds that will stand the test of time.

125KVA Spot Welders: Model #PS2

Full Size Press Sport Welder Features

Spot welders are commonly used for a broad range of welding applications that require high quality welds that are quick and precise. Whether the industry is electronics, automotive, battery manufacturing, or any other industry that requires work piece hardening, then press spot resistant welding should be a consideration for your project. Tempco’s 125KVA Full Size Spot Welder provides the following features:

  • 24″ standard throat depth (can be ordered from 12” – 36”)
  • 75KVA standard with 21kA max short circuit amperage; (can be ordered with 30-150KVA, we can install any transformer to suit)
  • 4″ (102mm) bore air cylinder, generating 1200lbsf @ 100PSI (534daN @ 7bar)
  • CNC machined, 99.99% pure copper support for the upper and lower ø2-1/2” diameter arms
  • 5RW standard 1-1/4″ diameter ejector-style electrode holders
  • The lower arm design has about 10” of vertical adjustment, allowing the deepest of parts to fit within the throat of the machine
  • Robust frame design
  • The whole upper arm attaches to the frame on t-slots, greatly increasing the adjustability and overall rigidity of the frame
  • Adjustable lower arm can swivel left & right, for even the most unusual tooling design
  • Fully adjustable knee support allows greater rigidity for heavier gages of metal, but can be easily removed for welding tubes, tanks, pipes, HVAC ducts
  • Robust roller bearing pillow blocks
  • Fully rebuildable
  • Precision air system
  • Exclusive use of copper core, water cooled transformers
  • All copper is a minimum 99.9% pure, or RWMA class
  • Designed and build in the USA

These state-of-the-art industrial spot welding machines have replaced some of our older spot welders and will allow us to perform the most advanced spot welds available in today’s marketplace.

Tempco adds new OMAX Maxiem 1530 Water Jet

If you have ever been curious about what the water jet cutting process entails and what it can offer your company I am going to break it down for you. A water jet cutting machine, also known as a “water jet cutter” or simply a “water jet”/”waterjet”, is a powerful and versatile cutting tool. Water jet cutting uses a constant, high pressure stream of water mixed with a granular abrasive substance to cut very narrow lines through metal or other materials, such as glass or rubber.

Waterjet cutting is not unlike other types of metal cutting processes, except that the cutting method that is used utilizes extremely high pressured water that is combined with an abrasive material so it can cut through harder denser materials. In its most basic terms water jet cutting uses high pressure water that is focused into a tight, narrow beam by a nozzle. Modern water jet cutters use a crankshaft driven pump to pressurize the water before sending it through the nozzle.

One of the main advantages of waterjet cutting is that it does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses within the material. It also produces a smooth edge on machined parts, reducing the need for secondary finishing operations. Additionally, water jet cutting is an environmentally-friendly process that uses only water and natural garnet abrasives as cutting media.

Water jet cutting is an ideal way to ensure superior precision and quality for your metal parts. Depending on your application and specific cutting needs it may be worth your while to further explore water jet cutting for your next project.
