Customised cross welding

Nexans to present its scalable semiautomatic machine for cross welding at the wire trade fair in Düsseldorf, which will take place from 12-16 April, 2010. You can find us at stand B42 in hall 09

Hanover, April 12, 2010 - The Nexans Production Lines and Technology Division team has developed a semiautomatic machine for cross welding, which can be adjusted to suit different application areas. The design engineers realised a scalable construction for this purpose, which can, in addition, be equipped with diverse welding technologies from TIG welding (with DC or AC) right up to modern laser welding. The unit is thus suitable for the processing of aluminium, copper, steel, stainless steel and diverse alloys with a strip width of up to 120 mm.


Equipped with a laser, the semiautomatic machine allows – depending on the material – the welding of extremely thin strip materials. The strip is manually fed and clamped, it is then subsequently fully automatically cut and cross welded. The automatic welding machine has a workpiece carrier, which can be turned through 45° for setting the welding angle.
