The Alternative to Plasma and Laser
The 150PW Plasma Arc Welding System is self-contained in a small package with a 200 Amp power supply, control console and Recirculator with many advantages over traditional automated plasma welding. It’s pilot arc circuit results in consistent arc starting every time, reduced scrap and improved process control for repeatable, high quality welds. This equipment is a direct replacement for customers using the Thermal Arc Ultima 150 Plasma Welder
Easy to setup: just requires attaching input power, gases, then mounting the torch.

The Plasma Arc Welding Advantages
The plasma welding process offers two prime benefits: Improved weld quality and increased weld output. Plasma welding offers advanced levels of control, arc stability and weld consistency for high quality welds either in miniature or precision applications.
The plasma process is equally suited to manual and automatic applications. It has been used in a variety of operations ranging from high volume welding of micro components, to precision welding of surgical instruments, to automatic repair of jet engine blades to the manual welding for repair of components in the tool, die and mold industry.
Microplasma Arc Welding Advantages:
How Plasma Welding Works: The system requires a power supply and welding torch. In the plasma welding torch a Tungsten electrode is located within a copper nozzle having a small opening at the tip. A pilot arc is initiated between the torch electrode and nozzle tip. This arc is then transferred to the metal to be welded.
By forcing the plasma gas and arc through a constricted orifice, the torch delivers a high concentration of heat to a small area. With high performance welding equipment, the plasma process produces exceptionally high quality welds on a variety of materials.
