PowerPoint® Weld Pins
For peak performance, it is highly recommended using Gripnail’s wide range of PowerPoint Weld Pins. Each point is precisely formed to provide optimum electrical resistance.
A PowerPoint Weld Pin permanently attaches insulation to galvanized steel in the fabrication of HVAC duct work and withstands a tensile pull of at least 120 pounds in sheet metal.
Programmable Logic Controller
Inside the control box is a PLC, which has been programmed here in the USA, to coordinate welding and machine functions resulting in the fastest and most perfected weld every time. Machine operators only need to increase the weld setting for longer pins or thicker sheet metal, and the PLC will set the dwell time and coordinate the feed cycle. Minimal operator training is needed for this machine which means maximum flexibility.
The PLC allows for minimum operator intervention during setup or job changes, all while producing maximum performance at industry leading speeds.
Chamfered & Recessed Weld Tip
The magnetic upper weld tip is specially designed with a chamfered edge and recessed center to optimize the weld quality of PowerPoint weld pins. The unique characteristics of the PowerPoint weld pin’s noninvasive protruding shank captures and centers the weld pin to ensure consistent loading while the beveled retaining cap prevents it from shifting off the weld tip when the pin is being set though the insulation. Although the PowerPinner 7005HS works with a variety of weld pins, using our PowerPoint’s precision manufacturing process assures a trouble free operation with the best quality weld possible.
Quick Change Weld Tips
Upper and lower weld tips cna be replaced in seconds. The lower weld tip is purposefully off centered so that once an area is worn down, the operator can make a small rotational adjustment and use a new part of the weld tip for extended product life.
Double-Acting Load Cylinder
To keep up with the intense speeds of the PLC, double-acting load cylinders are standard on every machine. This ensures that each Weld Pin is loaded at maximum speeds without the danger of a component collision potentially possible with single-acting cylinders, which may lag due to its dependence on spring tension.
A single weld-setting switch controls the weld time while the PLC optimizes the dwell times. The other controls are a “continuous fire” on/off switch and a feeder bowl speed control. The PowerPinner 7005HS also comes with a LED voltage readout which informs the operator of a low voltage situation which can affect the integrity of the weld.
Safety – A high visibility power switch comes standard with a simple to use Lockout/Tackout feature.
NEMA® Type 12 Electrical Enclosures
To protect vital components form the rigor of most manufacturing environments, every electrical enclosure is rated to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s Type 12 standards. This protects your investment from dust, debris, adhesives remnants and oil vapor form reaching operation critical components.
Large Capacity Feeder Bowl
The large capacity feeder bowl can accommodate a full range of pins from half inch to 2 inch and operators cna control the pin feed speed on the control box.
