SKS Welding Systems says it has developed this alternative option that replaces systems relying on the change of the torch or a second welding robot.  Using this system the company claims automatic wire change takes place in four short steps: cut, retract, feed and cut. 
SKS says users can first weld thin steel pipes of hydraulic brake systems and then solder the pertaining brackets. For each wire electrode, different gas types can be selected depending on the process and material. The Wire Select weld package is characterized by two hardware components: a Y-shaped torch body mounted on the Power Clutch collision protection and a second standard wire feed unit.
