Monrovia, California – Amada Miyachi America Inc.’s updated Series 320 Electronic Weld Head System increases the maximum weld force to 7 lb. with a maximum follow up force of 7.75 lb.

Series 320 is designed for safety critical applications in the automotive, medical, aerospace, and precision electronics markets. With the expanded force range, the Series 320 is suitable for fine wire welding.

It can be configured with in-line or offset opposed electrodes to tailor the weld head for specific applications. Accurate force and position parameters provide process control and measurement. The weld-to-displacement feature stops the weld precisely during collapse.

Also offered is an initial part detection feature that detects missing or extra parts. Displacement limits facilitate monitoring of both initial and final part thickness.

In addition, the software has been updated to include a low force dress mode for preparation and cleaning of electrodes. This feature eases the routine maintenance required to get precise, repeatable results. The updated Series 320 is available with linear motion or two level footswitch options. A user friendly I/O makes for easy integration with a PLC. Four programmable relay outputs facilitate precise process control.
