The HELIX M45 weld head allows for 45 degrees of outward and inward adjustment. It can be quickly be clamped on to an orbital or flat track. In addition, the operator has multiple toolless torch adjustment options, giving greater control of the weld puddle for more complex welds. With a low radial clearance of 4.5 in. (114 mm), the HELIX M45 weld head allows for digitally controlled, precision welding in areas of limited space and physical constraints. This lower profile weld head was designed so it can be quickly set up as far as five inches (127 mm) from the weld joint without affecting oscillation, offering greater flexibility.
Designed on the Power Wave® platform for advanced, multi-process capabilities, this device also features a pivoting torch height assembly which provides perpendicular height control to the puddle face. Optional on-board wire feeders are also available for GMAW / FCAW and GTAW welding applications. The weld head also incorporates an inclinometer permitting advanced repeatability and automatic weld parameter changes during the weld process.
