Types of Industrial Fabrication Tools

Automatic Welders

Automatic welders use pre-set parameters for various applications, including industrial fabrication projects. They require minimal oversight, which decreases the risk of user errors. They also produce a cleaner, more uniform weld that enhances quality and boosts profitability.

Automatic Welders

Handheld Welders

Handheld welders are ideal for smaller, short-term projects. Their ergonomic handle makes them easy to use. Plus, it doesn’t cause hand cramps like other welders do. The electronically controlled temperature maximizes energy efficiency while preventing weak spots and missed welds. The portability of these welders, along with the ability to customize the nozzle size, allows for optimal precision control with every weld.

Industrial Fabrication Tools FAQs

Want to know more about how BAK welders work and what they’re used to accomplish? You’ve come to the right place. Check out the FAQs below to find the answers you’re looking for.

How does welding thermoplastics work?

Thermoplastics such as TPO and PVC can be welded using mechanical movements, an external heat source, or electromagnetism.

Where are BAK welders produced?

BAK is a Swiss-based company with a head office in Kerns, Switzerland, in addition to production and development facilities in Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. Since its founding in 1997, BAK has been the world’s leading manufacturer of plastic welding equipment, extruders, air heaters, and blowers.

What welding techniques are used for industrial fabrication when using an automatic lap welder?

Using the right techniques is necessary if you want to achieve the proper weld. These are the three techniques used for industrial fabrication applications in the welding industry.

Speed in the welding industry simply means how quickly the welder moves along a workpiece. Speed is important for two reasons. First, it enhances the quality of a weld by preventing defects. Second, it reduces operating costs by using resources more efficiently.

Apply pressure simultaneously to the plastic surface, ensuring they’re welded together. While the weld is still hot, use a roller to create an even surface.

Use your welder of choice to heat the plastic surface, moving the device around to maintain an even temperature at every point.

What are the applications for an automatic welder?

Unlike handheld welders, automatic welders don’t require manual operation, making them ideal for industrial projects that cover more surface area. Automatic welders are particularly effective for sign and advertising banner welding, seaming, hemming, and finishing in the tarpaulin and advertising industries.
