HYDRAULIC LOAD GAGES
The load gages measure the actual pounds of force that the welder is applying to the parts being welded. It's a must for insuring consistent weld pressure between machines. Because different welders have different size press cylinders, the same reading on the pressure gage of each machine does not mean the actual down force is the same.
The Hydraulic Load Gage removes the guesswork. Simply bring the horn down on the load gage. Then, adjust the machine's pressure until you have the desired down-pressure reading on the load gage. Do this on each machine to duplicate welding parameters.
The load gage is a great companion to our amplitude
gage, which together can take the guesswork out of accomplishing consistent
welds. At less than half the price of a load cell, this gage can soon
pay for itself in reduced scrap parts and setup costs. The gage is available
with a 0-160 lb., 0-600 lb. or 0-1500 lb. indicator. We recommend the
0-600 lb. for 20kHz & 40kHz welders and the 0-1500 lb. for 15kHz welders
or high-pressure welding applications.
