The Kat® Auto-Weld travel carriage can perform a wide variety of welding, cutting and overlay cycles. The advanced electronic Auto-Weld control works in conjunction with the Gullco Kat® programmable control and limit switches to automate many repetitive welding or cutting operations.
The Kat Carriage Auto-Weld enables a wide variety of automated welding cycles that can be repeatedly performed along any plane.
The advanced Auto-Weld control monitors, via distance travelled, and responds to limit switches mounted on the Kat which in turn respond to adjustable activators mounted at appropriate positions on the Kat Track. Travel direction/speed and length of travel path are synchronized with precise weld start and weld stop settings.
By combining different control settings and limit switch activator positions, a wide variety of welding cycles can be repeatedly performed. The Kat Auto-Weld Combination is ideal for stitch welding and seam welding applications where repeatability and accuracy are desired. The reliability and precision of this automated welding system reduces cost, adds efficiency and improves quality.
“Kat” Travel Carriage/Auto Weld Combination comprises:
Gullco Auto-Weld Kat Travel Carriage with heavy duty self-aligning wheel assemblies, closed loop tack feed back for accurate speed control when running in any plane, regardless of load. Maximum 100lbs. (45kgs).
Carriage is controlled by the new Gullco low voltage 24 volt GSP microprocessor pulsed width modulation motor control, interfacing with the forward/stop/reverse switch and infinitely variable 4- turn speed potentiometer. LED display in IPM orcm/min and with a ten position rotary switch to adjust various functions. (shown on other side of page) Operates on 42, 115 or 230 volts, single phase, 50/60 Hz A.C. power supply.
Limit Switches - 3 limit switches are mounted on the outside of the carriage. One each for forward, reverse and centre limit for weld start positioning and weld on/off activation.
Adjustable Park and End Limit Switch Activators - for mounting on Gullco Kat Rigid or Flex Track. Centre limit switch activator(s) to be supplied by the customer.
Optional Remote Pendant Control Kit - Uses GSP control removed from Kat Carriage...enabling remote operator control of the Auto-Weld unit.
