IDEAL since 1923 – Your partner for resistance and laser welding machines

As a technology leader, IDEAL has been designing and producing welding machines in Germany since 1923. We offer worldwide service for the maintenance and repair to our customers. The head office situated in Lippstadt (North Rhine-Westphalia) features the administration,
commercial and technical departments as well as the project management and design offices. Our mechanical production is equipped with a modern fleet of machines and delivers high-grade individual components with the greatest of precision.

At the second location in Lippstadt, the machines are set up in the assembly halls, the hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical systems are installed and subsequently the functional testing is performed. The test operation with customer material is also carried out here in order to prepare the final inspection and training of the customer personnel in an optimal manner.
We seek to meet your expectations.

Type GA mesh welding machines

IDEAL mesh welding machines are in widespread use in the wire goods industry.

Leading manufacturers of wire goods rely on IDEAL machines in order to be able to fabricate the base grids for their products in a flexible and economical manner.

When required, IDEAL automatic production lines perform additional processes such as punching, embossing, bending, etc. on the product, ensuring that a finished product is achieved at the end of the line.
They are, f
or example, ideally suited for the production of fences and industrial mesh in single or double wire for 2D, 3D, 358, grates or machine protective grating as well as for the production of cable trays or mesh floors.
Subsequently, only the finish / surface coating has to be performed.


Process all product variants and material combinations

  • Wire mesh with various wire diameters and lengths
  • Mesh frame combinations
  • Mesh production with upper and/or lower cross wires
  • Special mesh products, e.g. deck mesh (mesh floors) and white goods

Advantages in order to make your production and processing faster and more affordable

  • High adaptability to the respective usage case with a multitude of individually selectable modules for the feeding in, welding portal and removal as well as various modules for the mesh handling and the further processing of the welded products
  • Highest welding quality by means of application-specific alternating current, direct current or medium frequency technology (1,000 Hz)
  • Laser-supported positioning aids for a quick and monitored setup
  • Tool-free quick adjustment and conversion of the welding cylinders
  • Parallel production and combination of different wire diameters and other components such as flat bars or profiles with several secondary circuits
  • Manual loading for efficient small and medium-scale production
  • Automatic loading and unloading units for large-scale production
  • Supply of additional wires, flat bars and profiles
  • Integration of straightening and cutting machines
  • Easy handling of frames
  • Simultaneous fabrication of two products in a single step
  • Reduced installation area of the machine due to the integrated operating station
  • Intuitive operator guidance with touch screen for the setting of a multitude of welding and production parameters
  • Monitoring / teleservice for the remote maintenance and diagnostics via a secure online portal
  • Production and combination of different wire diameters and other components such as flat bars or profiles with several secondary circuits

  • Dishwasher baskets
  • Reinforcement steel mesh
  • Mobile fences
  • Gabions
  • in shop construction.
The technology of the mesh 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 the mesh production, 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 various modularly constructed model lines of welding machines, which fabricate mesh made up of diverse types of aligned wires that have been cut to length. In the course of this – to your benefit – particular attention is paid to the versatility and flexibility of the machines.

Due to the quick, easy conversion during product changeovers, they are suited for both large-scale series as well as for medium to small batch numbers.

The modules of the mesh welding machine GA

Modular design


The welding portal forms the centre of the mesh welding machine.

For a completed wire product to be created, the loose wires, flat bars and frames must be supplied to the welding portal and the welded products must be transported out of the welding portal.

Subsequently, additional fabrication steps such as punching, embossing, bending, etc. can be arranged in an automated production line, in order to achieve a completed product at the end.
