December 2007 - Buffalo Grove, IL - Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America – Process Automation introduces TAWERS-TIG, another significant arc welding process improvement for the TAWERS robot family. Made for thin, high-speed, spatter-sensitive applications such as in the automotive muffler industry, TAWERS-TIG allows for a faster, cleaner weld on mild and stainless steel. Panasonic has also made the switch from TAWERS-MIG to TAWERS-TIG easy. Customers can add a TIG unit and software to their pre-existing TA-WG configuration.
Panasonic researchers found that conventional TIG welding often faces difficulties in maintaining a consistent weld due to the noise created by the high frequency voltage required to start the arc. "Touch Start" on TAWERS-TIG eliminates noise and allows for maintaining appropriate heat input at all times regardless of any slight changes in the base metal.
Conventional TIG welding also has a limited window of wire speed feed capability. TAWERS-TIG's "Filler-Torch" lessens the distance between the wire and the electrode, letting the arc pre-heat the wire - allowing for faster wire-melting speed and an overall larger process window for wire feed speed changing.
Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America – Process Automation, a North American source for electronic assembly equipment (SMT), software and technical support, provides total business systems solutions for electronic semiconductor and packaging companies in the global marketplace through one provider.
