Larger model of orbital weld heads

Larger model of orbital weld heads

Magnatech has added a new, larger model to its 800 Series of orbital weld Heads.  The new Model 860 fusion welds tube from 2" to 6" (50 - 150mm).  The company recently introduced the 800 Series, a line of enclosed autogenous orbital weld heads that utilize digital technology.  Digital encoder drive motors eliminate the need for calibration.  (QC can quickly verify the accuracy, but calibration will never change over time.)

The 860 Head is the most compact and lightweight 6" (150mm) head available today, the company states.  Only 0.75" (19mm) of straight length is required - tungsten to collet face.  The 860 head is only 1.7" (43mm) wide, allowing use for tight clearance applications welding fitting-to-fitting or fitting-to-valve.

According to the company, new construction techniques make the series cost-effective, durable, and easy to service in the field.  A unique design, over-close collet clamping system, and an exclusive full exchange water cooling system allow for true 100 % duty cycle.  Now five models handle tube sizes from 0.125" to 6.00" (3 - 150mm) OD.
