The Pipemaster Model 515 is a programmable power source providing the benefits of digital design: unparalled accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. The Model 515 operates a range of weld Heads designed for multi-pass welding.
The model D weld Head is capable of reproducing all the precise motions of a skilled manual GTAW welder. It is specifically designed for multipass pipe welding applications and consistently produces welds meeting the most stringent code quality standards.
Used with Pipemaster Power Source Models, the D-Head improves productivity by increasing duty cycle, reducing repair rates and producing welds of consistent quality. The compact head is ideal for smaller diameter pipe applications with limited radial and axial clearance around the weld.
The D-Head mounts on the pipe by means of metal Guide Rings, which are available for all standard pipe/tube sizes. The weld Head mounts entirely on one side of the joint, allowing for pipe-to-fitting welds. The compact head-mounted wire feeder uses standard size wire spools.
The D-Head drive system incorporates heat-tolerant components and a water-cooled housing for use on CrMo and other alloys requiring preheat. Mounting the head on an oversize Guide Ring with adapter feet creates an air space, preventing heat damage.
Quickclamp weld Heads are capable of reproducing all the precise motions of a skilled manual GTAW welder. Both models are specifically designed for multipass pipe welding applications and consistently produce welds meeting the most stringent code quality standards. Used with a Pipemaster Power Source, these weld Heads improve productivity by increasing duty cycle, reducing repair rates and producing welds of consistent quality.
The weld Head is simply slipped over the pipe and clamped with a toggle lever. Its continuously adjustable clamp eliminates the need to interchange components. The wide V-block clamp self centers, and ensures that the head is squarely mounted relative to the joint. The weld Head mounts entirely on one side of the joint, allowing use for pipe-to-fitting welds.
The Quickclamp Arc Gap Control electronically maintains a desired arc length as the torch rotates around the pipe. The entire actuator can be pivoted to allow socket welding, while maintaining the arc length correction motion along the tungsten electrode axis. In addition, the heat-tolerant chain drive allows use on CRMo and other alloys requiring preheat.
