Description of equipment

POWER WAVE 450 is a digitally controlled source of welding current of high output, for complex and high-speed control with pulse modulation, provided with wire feeder Synergic 7.

Power wave 450 is designed as a multiprocess source of welding current. It is preprogrammed for the best range of welding parameters setting, in dependence on the type of wire, its diameter and on the range of gases. Intelligent control of all welding parameters, ensured by 16-bit processor predestines this source for use in the heavy-duty operation conditions, including working places controlled by robots.

POWER WAVE 450 is intended for synergic welding. The word „synergistic“ takes its origin from the word „synergism“, which means „two or more things working together to achieve effect, which cannot be achieved individually. “POWER WAVE 450 and wire feeder are working together like a team. ALL the time either of these „knows“ what the other is doing. Both know, which process, type and diameter of wire they are to use. In the synergic system, the source and wire feeder must „talk“ in one language. Synergic feeder has its special circuit to be able to „speak“ to the source and „listen“ to it at the same time.

Welding experts programmed the system to achieve the best setting of process parameters in dependence on the type of wire, its diameter and the gas used. If the wire feed speed changes, the system automatically changes the voltage and current course in such a way, in order that the welding characteristics are the best possible. The quality of welds, their appearance and repeatibility is improved in this way.

All parameters programmed into the POWER WAVE 450 have been sufficiently tested to achieve weld of high quality, with excellent appearance and minimal spatter. POWER WAVE 450 is designed in such a way, in order that it can work normally, when welding steel, in the sphere between the spray and short-circuitting arc.

POWER WAVE 450 can be a valuable machine for increase or decrease of the heat being brought in for given procedure. Delivery of heat can be substantially increased when welding steel with high deposition rate.On the other hand, the heat delivery can be decreased, when pulse welding. We can also substantially decrease the heat delivery into the piece being welded, when welding stainless steels with a low current, using processes programmed into the POWER WAVE 450.

In all cases these procedures have been tested to give stabile welds of high quality. The set procedures can be manually influenced. However it is on the responsibility of user to change the process in the best way, in order that the weld being performed is as best as possible.

POWER WAVE 450 is controlled by panel with push buttons from functional overlays, which can be interchanged according to use of this source. Use of these overlays represents a new concept in control of welding sources. Three of these overlays, which can be ordered as accessories, are included in the source delivery. The overlays are made from special artificial material. They have specified number of symbols and push buttons printed on one side and a bar code giving for the source POWER WAVE an information concerning selection of the control system and function for each push buttons. The overlays enable easy control even when the operator is wearing gloves.

Technology of waveform control

Outstanding operation features of welding source Power Wave 450 ONE are achieved by means of use of The Waveform Control Technology.

In fig.1, there are different forms of wave, suiting best for particular material, with the purpose to get best welding results. The operator can quite easily change a lot of variable elements of welding proces, by using proper material (aluminium, stainless steel, plain carbon steel etc. according to menu from the memory inside the source).

Output of the welding source Power Wave 450 ONE is then controlled by software, developed by our experts in our „Laboratory for applied technology.“ However the operator can adjust the welding proces through controls TRIM and WAVEFORM, if he considers it important.

For customers, who would like to use abilities of Power Wave 450 ONE according their requirements we can recommend and install special program for extremely demanding applications.

Power Wave 450 ONE can be completely reprogrammed. After development of new waveforms these units can be provided with a new sowtware. Your present and future requirements can be met with and you always have an assurance that your welding machine will not get old.

Changes of Power wave 450

Power Wave 450 ONE is capable of operation with 6 different panel overall, corresponding to your requirements for outfit and control of the welding source. Each panel overall has specific system of this source control and enables for the technical welding inspection to program, store into memory and set, welding parameters. Each overall has defined possibilities of interference into the set procedures of welding. For welding inspection of Power Wave 450 ONE is thus easy to prepare welding parameters through overlay „Selection of process“ and to limit interferences of welding operator into these parameters by substitution of panel for the „Limits overlay“. Any other manipulation with welding parameters is thus limited and corrections as well.
