The technology of the jig welding machine


Depending on the particular welding task and requirements, alternating current, direct current or medium frequency technology is used.

As a result of the concentration of the current to the respective cross point, straight, distortion-free and dimensionally accurate grates are achieved.

Furthermore, with the programmable cascading of individual welding areas, the use in production facilities with limited power supply is also possible.

Modular construction – fulfills your requirements

Extensive experience with resistance welding technology and 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.

The CSR 102 Versaweld™ jig welding machine can be adapted to your specific application with practice-oriented and proven accessories. Particular attention is paid to the versatility and flexibility of the machine - to your benefit.

In order to meet the requirements of your product, you can choose from a wide range of accessories. These options can even be retrofitted later on. Thus the welding machine is equipped for future tasks.

An overview
of the CSR 102 Versaweld™ jig welding machine

The CSR 102 Versaweld™ jig welding machines are characterised by their versatile application possibilities and their easy handling. Products made of wire and/or sheet metal are inserted in jigs on the manually operated rotary table.

While the products are fabricated on one side of the jig table, the operator loads or unloads the other side; this enables an optimal utilisation of the machine and minimises standstill times. Both table sides can be programmed independently from each other. Product changes and new set-ups are possible within the shortest time due to the intuitive programming method as well as the use of corresponding jigs.

IDEAL offers a wide selection of different table variants and loading devices. The shape and dimensions of the product mountings can be adapted individually to the requirement.

With the use of NC-controlled axes, the machine can be programmed and controlled in X, Y and Z direction with an accuracy of tenths. In this manner, a maximum degree of precision and the best possible welding results are achieved.


The modules: Options and accessories for the CSR 102 Versaweld™ jig welding machine

The requirements of our customers as well as the market – in connection with continuous new and further development – form the basis for the accessories of our jig welding machines.
