Skew roll welder for 13 different diameters.
Arplas Welding recently designed a skew roll welder that combines the advantages of the high speed welder with possibility to produce any diameter and a very low change over time.
Some drum producers have a large variety of diameters in their supply program.
For this reason they have to produce some times a large variety of diameters on just 1 welder.
NEWCOR BAY CITY developed about 30 years ago a drum welder that would not use hour glass rolls to keep the overlap of a drum to be welded, but skew rolls.
This skew roll technology anyhow was not available on modern welders yet, and only few producers are able to offer it to you.
ARPLAS welding decided to combine the well known Newcor technology with their new HSP 800 drum welder, resulting in a new type welder, our SSP 800 Skew roll welder.
This machine has the same features and technology as our HSP 800 welder, but it does not use hourglass rolls, and thus is the diameter of the produced shell purely depending on the cut size of the sheet.
Advantage of this mach is the short resetting time from 1 diameter to another, and the possibility to weld any diameter of drum between 400 and 600 mm.
