Quite traditional – coil joining machines are utilised in these applications

Arc welding machines made by IDEAL are used by leading manufacturers for the welding of coils of various dimensions and materials

The technology of arc welding machines

The electric arc forms the basis of arc welding. It is created by an electric discharge between the welding electrode and the workpiece. The electric arc welds the coils of equal or different materials.

Different welding current sources are available for each coil welding machine. The welding current source to be selected for the individual case depends on the material quality, coil thickness and coil surface.

Alternatively, we offer flash butt welding machines with separate coil end shears, insertion stops, centring devices and plane deburring for the welding of steel coil up to a width of max. 800 mm.

Modular construction – fulfills your requirements

Extensive experience in the design of coil welding machines, a close, cooperative collaboration with our customers, the cooperation with technical universities and research institutes as well as an instinct for technology trends form the foundation of our high innovative strength.

The basis of our development work lies in the continuous further development of our well proven machines with a focus on the best customer benefit and maximum efficiency.

We offer our customers different, modularly constructed model lines of welding machines, which join coils of a wide range of types. Particular attention is paid to the versatility and flexibility of the machines - to your benefit.
