Equipment Type
   Equipment Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Complete System       Complete welding systems include brazing, cutting, soldering, and/or surfacing subsystems. They also include a power source or station; a torch, iron or gun; cables, feeders, and positioners; robots; and other required components. 
   Power Source / Station       Power sources or power stations are power supplies used for soldering irons, tungsten inert gas (TIG) guns, metal inert gas (MIG) guns, electrode holders, laser, electron beam guns, or other joining units. The required output power is enough to melt the material. Welding power supplies are sometimes called welding power sources. Soldering power supplies are called soldering stations. 
   Gun / Iron / Torch       Irons, torches, or guns provide a point-source of heat for melting solder or filler alloys at a joint or interface. Typically, soldering irons are heated using electrical resistance. Gas torch or hot air-heated irons are also available and are useful in plumbing or field applications where an electrical power source is not available. Gas burning, Oxyfuel, and plasma torches are also used in brazing and welding applications. 
   Monitor / Controller       Monitor / controller equipment is used for sensing joint quality (size or integrity), gap, position, or output power supply variations. Controllers are also used to adjust parameters in order to compensate for variations in joint quality or output power. 
   Other       Other unlisted equipment types.

Process Capability
   Frictional / Specialty Processes:      In stud arc welding, the conventional welding stick or wire is replaced with a threaded fastener stud. The stud fits into the end of specialized stud-welding gun. An arc is struck between the fastener stud and the workpiece that fuses the stud to the workpiece surface. Drawn arc, capacitive discharge, internal resistance or other processes are used to generate an arc or fuse metal. Similar processes can be applied to weld a thread nut to a work piece.
   Your choices are...         
   Friction Welder (Inertia / Rotary)       In friction welding, workpieces are heated by the relative motion between the surfaces. Often, one or more workpieces are rotated at high speed and then pressed together until the interface reaches the welding temperature. Friction welding is considered a solid-state welding process because the work surface is not normally fused. The friction welding mechanisms are more closely aligned with a forge-welding process. 
   Gas Torch       Gas torch brazing uses a combustible fuel gas such as propane and air or oxygen to heat the workpiece and melt the braze filler alloy. The molten braze alloy wets and flows across the heated work surface. Temperatures are normally high so that a metallurgical bond can be formed, but fusion of the workpiece does not normally occur. 
   Hot Rod / Iron       The brazing and soldering process uses a heated rod or iron to heat the work surface and melt the solder filler-alloy. The molten solder wets and flows across the heated work surface. 
   Laser Welding       Laser welding uses a laser beam to melt the workpiece. Laser beams provide a very narrow, concentrated energy source that melts a narrow region; this results in a minimal heat-affected zone. The welds can be made without filler metals or consumable electrodes. 
   Thermal Press       Thermal presses apply heat, combined with pressure to permanently join, assemble, degate, and emboss plastic parts. Applications of thermal presses include:
  • Heat sealing, or plastic welding, is the process of permanently joining plastic parts together by applying heat and pressure.
  • Heat staking is the process of joining plastic parts to other plastic or metal parts by inserting a plastic stud into holes in plastic components.  Pressure and heat is applied to the stud, which deforms the head and permanently joins the parts together.
  • Insert installation is the process of installing metal inserts or fasteners to plastic housings.
  • Embossing or date coding of plastic parts by applying heat and pressure to a die.
  • Heat swaging is similar to heat staking, but joins plastic parts by applying heat while rolling the perimeter of the part.
  • Hot knife degating of plastic parts is the process of applying heat to a knife blade to trim unwanted material, such as that left by the molding process.
 
   Ultrasonic / Linear Friction       In ultrasonic or linear friction welding, the workpieces are heated by the ultrasonic vibration or reciprocating linear-motion between the surfaces. The workpieces are clamped under moderately high forces between a welding tip and anvil. An ultrasonic transducer is coupled to the welding tip. Ultrasonic welding is considered a solid-state welding process because the work surface is not normally fused. The process can be used to join dissimilar metals and plastics. 
   Other Welding Processes       Fusion, friction, or other welding processes not listed here.

   Phase       
   Your choices are...         
   Single-phase       Single-phase power is the standard for commercial and residential applications. The term "single-phase" means one sinusoidal or other alternating-voltage pattern. 
   Three-phase       Three-phase power contains three simultaneous, sinusoidal, or other alternating-voltage patterns, typically 120° out of phase with each other. Higher power efficiency and smoothness of operation are possible with three-phase operation. Three-phase power is used most often for industrial or high-power motors.
