Orbital TIG Welding - A Complete Solution


For joining pipes and tubes, our modular systems incorporate all the welding components required for superior orbital welding.

 

Orbital Welding System   The APEX® 2100 incorporates all of the welding components required for orbital TIG (gas tungsten arc welding). It’s engineered for diverse applications in demanding environments, restricted spaces and locations with lack of visibility. With this system, operators can retrieve specific weld programs for each application to maintain quality control procedures and gather weld information for future statistical reporting. The APEX 2100 orbital welding system includes the following (buy as a package or individually):

APEX 2100 Controller & Pendant

The APEX 2100 Orbital Controller is a fully integrated and synchronized system for monitoring mechanical and magnetic oscillation, torch height control (AVC), wire delivery and gas delivery. The lightweight pendant can be held in one hand, allowing the operator immediate access to monitor, adjust and control weld parameters quickly to ensure a reliable and consistent weld. The Controller captures all weld information and critical data, which can be stored on the system internally or exported for analytical and statistical reporting.

HELIX C450 and C663 Orbital TIG Clamp-on Weld Heads

Now, operators can weld not only large, outside diameters with no limit up to flat track welding, they can also weld smaller pipes with an outside diameter ranging from 1.315 to 6.63 inches. The HELIX® C450 and C663 orbital TIG clamp-on weld heads are rugged, compact and easy to install and position on pipes and tubes. Most importantly, they have a water cooled motor housing and torch – a solution to a common overheating problem.

HELIX WF20S and WF20B Wire Feeders

Paired with the HELIX® C series are the HELIX WF20S and WF20B wire feeders. They use a precision wire feed motor to ensure correct wire feed speed throughout the weld. Their simplistic designs allow the operator to install new wire spools in under a minute with no tools required.

HELIX T55 Weld Head

Designed to be lightweight and durable, the HELIX® T55 is portable and easy to install, operate and service. Its low-profile design allows the HELIX T55 to weld in confined spaces. The weld head provides consistent weld speed throughout the welding process and has superior wire feed set-up. One clamp knob secures the tractor to the track ring allowing for quick one person set up and a clutch release disengages the gear from the track allowing the operator to reposition the tractor anywhere on the work surface in seconds.

Track Ring

Intuitive track ring design combined with gear-driven, spring loaded system enables the tractor to drive over debris while maintaining a consistent weld. The track ring and shoe extensions can be used on multiple pipe sizes. Each ring comes with mounted shoes containing spring loaded cushions rated up to 800 lbs. to allow for work surface hat expansion, this eliminated binding and ring distortion.
