Due to the addition of a second gantry to the DSM two independently working welding heads are available for the welding operation. The immediate use? A reduction of the effective cycle time! But that's not all: Especially in the case of high production volumes, this leads to economic potentials, which are directly addressed with the D-DSM series. Therefore the efficiency boost of the overall invest can be reduced significantly with a reduction of system and equipment demands.
D-DSM2400 Double spindle equipment
- Independently operating welding heads for reduction of the effective cycle time
- Workpiece supply system from both sides for cycle time concurrent loading and unloading
- The usual low-level heat input due to the DynaSTIR technology
Workpiece supply systems for enhanced productivity
In terms of cycle time, the rapid loading and unloading of workpieces is just as important as the dynamics and speed of the welding machine. Modular, expandable, automatic feeding systems for simultaneous welding and loading / unloading of work pieces outside of the machine. The loading and unloading of components can be done manually by the operator with the help of a manipulator or an indoor crane, or fully automated.
Friction Stir Welding
The Friction Stir Welding technology (FSW) by Grenzebach enables the joining of technically pure metals, alloys and mixed material compounds while providing a solid bond of exceptional quality. During the FSW process a rotating, wear-resistant welding tool generates frictional heat at the welding zone. The material becomes malleable and is stirred along the welding path by the welding tool without reaching the melting temperature of the joining materials. The stirred material is compacted by the tool shoulder and a solid, media and pressure-tight joint between the work pieces is formed. Compared to conventional fusion welding processes (e.g. arc welding), FSW does not require additional welding wire, inert gas or complex exhaust systems. Furthermore, FSW does not generate any discernible noise, emissions or optical radiation.
