Lightning Fast Automation



Marlin Steel's IDEAL welding machine is one of only five in existence and the only one located in the U.S. This makes it a truly unique piece of equipment among American manufacturing companies. The IDEAL welding machine is lightning fast. It can complete a weld in two milliseconds. This means that, in theory, this welding machine can complete 50 weld operation in the blink of an eye. 

The faster weld cycle of the Versaweld CSR102 offers a better shape consistency for your parts. The improved consistency in the shape of all welded items in a particular product line is a great benefit to any company that relies on interchangeable parts. This, in turn, means fewer parts will be rejected, lowering manufacturing waste and overall costs. 

The Versaweld possesses many useful features that help make it a great asset to Marlin Steel's manufacturing capabilities, including:

  • The ability to weld in three dimensions.
  • Completing welds much faster than a traditional machine.
  • It has a large 10' x 4' table.
  • Having four different welding heads, in addition to a special pincer head, making it able to handle a variety of welding tasks.
  • Being able to power through round edges. 
  • Possessing two separate control mechanisms for the movement servos and the welding heads.

Controlling the Welder

The controller for the welder is a Medium Frequency DC (MFDC) Welding Controller. It is the 1,000-cycles technology of this controller that enables the welder to achieve its 2/1,000 of a second weld speed, allowing for a higher-quality surface finish of welded parts and reducing spatter, sharps, and other undesirable deformations to a welded part.

By keeping the movement controls separate from the welding program controls, the Versaweld is able to ensure the ultra-rapid calculation speed that the welding heads require in order to complete welds in two milliseconds.
