PWM to launch a new cold welder

British company PWM (Pressure Welding Machines), which celebrates 40 years of service to the wire and cable industry in this year, will launch a new cold welding machine for trapezoidal wire at “wire¨.

The company’s full range of products, including the “P1500” cold welder for rod up to 30mm, will be on show. The new “TR45” cold welder is designed specifically for non-ferrous trapezoidal wire used in the build-up of sub-sea cables. The machine has a small footprint of 750mm x 610mm and is mobile, so can be moved easily to the work area. Powered by an advanced air/hydraulic system, the “TR45” will weld trapezoidal material up to 45mm². PWM’s “P1500” machine offers wire and cable manufacturers a quick and cost-effective way to weld large nonferrous rod.

The machine is extremely energy efficient since it is driven by three hydraulic pumps and only requires electrical power for the 11kW pump motor. Clean, quiet and user-friendly, the “P1500” produces reliable permanent welds stronger than the parent material, helping manufacturers reduce operating costs, save resources and minimise waste. The smaller “EP500” pneumatic cold welder for rod 5mm to 15mm is equally energy efficient. It can be connected to a central air supply or a dedicated compressor and only needs electrical power for the operating system. The full PWM range includes small, lightweight hand-held manual machines for fine wire up to 1.20mm; manual and powered models that can be used on a workbench or supplied with a trolley for wire 0.30mm to 6.50mm and large, freestanding rod welders for material up to 30mm. PWM’s products are designed and made in-house and tested throughout manufacture to ensure total accuracy. The company manufactures industry standard dies and can produce custom-made dies for specific applications.
