VSTW-1000/1270/1540

The manual stitch welder for longitudinal seams

The stitchwelder is an all-purpose machine, which is effective in any environment due to its simplicity and robustness.

Money

With the stitchwelder, a high-quality weld seam can be made without any adverse effect on the material to be welded. The electroplating remains undamaged, eliminating the need for expensive reworking, such as sealing or repainting. The weld seam is free of defects and meets all quality requirements in full.

Time

The recyclable copper-wire electrodes ensure that there is no need for time-consuming reworking of the work pieces. The use of copper wire has significantly reduced the amount of necessary maintenance on the weld rolls and therefore increased the lifespan of the rolls as well.

Material

Material thicknesses from 0.4 to 1.0 mm (0.016” to 0.04”) for electro-plated, cold-rolled or stainless steel can be welded with the stitchwelder. The stitchwelder has an adjustable weld speed of 3 – 15 m/min (10 – 49 ft/min), creating a productive and efficient machine. The weld seams created are completely air-tight. The system is simple to tune to various product dimensions and part geometries. The VSTW is available with arm lengths of 1,000 mm, 1,270 mm, and 1,540 mm (40”, 50”, 60”)
