Miyachi Europe has unveiled its new low force MFP-25 servo weld head with linear drive, for use in the AWS3 Active Welding System. The MFP-25 is particularly suitable for such applications as automotive sensors and airbags. The weld head is servo motor-driven for very short cycle times and uses a closed loop force control. Programmable electrode speed, force and position make the head fl exible and easy to use. The MFP offers full AWS3 functionality for high end process control. Hardware updates in AWS3 have improved process control and adaptive duty cycle, adaptive electrode closing time, adaptive squeeze time and adaptive weld force.
