Fixed Automation Machine Torches - D/F Automatic Water-Cooled to the Tip Torches

D/F Automatic W/C-TipImprove productivity with the Automatic Water-Cooled-to-the-Tip 650 amp continuous dudy cycle machine barrels for automatic welding systems. These torches have been specially designed to deposit more weld metal at fast travel speeds which eliminates bottlenecks and cuts costs.

These heavy duty machine torches are designed for high current (up to 850 amps) single arc welding. Very similar in design to the Linde ST-12, the D/F Machine Automatic Water-Cooled-to-the-Tip barrels are designed to provide long trouble-free service. They are available in 5" and 8" lengths, and each length is available with our standard size nozzles (7/16" through 3/4" ID gas cups) and our high capacity (Series A) nozzles (11/16" through 1" ID gas cups) for more gas coverage. These barrels are capable of running the full range of wires through 1/8" for stainless steel, inconel, hard, cored, and aluminum wires. Because of the robust design of the torch and the water-cooling on the docking spool body, water-cooled nozzle and current tip, downtime and consumable cost can be greatly reduced. With the various models available, an automated MIG torch selection may be made to suit individual automated welding system requirements.

Fixed Automation Welding
When performing higher volume repeatable applications, a fixed automation setup would be ideal to achieve higher production at a lower cost. With little interaction and down time required, the D/F Automatic Water-Cooled to the Tip torches are Ideal. The torch will last years compared to months by the competition. Due to the superior water cooling, the tip will last at least a shift rather than through just a couple of parts, and will outlast the competition at least 7-to-1, and sometimes 14-to-1. The D/F Automatic Water-Cooled to the Tip torch is the right choice for your fixed automation applications.

As drills go deeper and the hardbanding industry stedily evolves, D/F Machine Specialties strives to meet the assocaited demands by selling quality MIG welding products for your hardbanding needs. Our Automatic MIG Water-Cooled-to-the-Tip Machine Torches are ideal for steel wire, stainless steel, hard, cored, flux cored, or stellite, 1000 degree preheat, high deposition, and continuous duty cycles. The D/F Automatic Water-Cooled to the Tip torch is the right choice for your hardbanding and hardfacing applications.
