WIRE LINER TRIAL
Product being tested, wire POWER LINER as
received from Superior Consumables.
Our facility was having extensive wire feed
problems due to dirt and shavings on our weld wire. Gerard Cyr from
Superior Consumables was contacted for possible solutions to our tip
We were at best getting one shift out of our weld
tips on all 8 of our robotic weld cells before they required removing of
the tip to clean out the foreign matter at the tip inlet and or replaced.
We were given two POWER LINER’s to see if they
would alleviate our problem. They were immediately installed on the two
weld cells that in recent history were giving us the most problems. As a
control new standard wire liners were also installed on two other cells.
Our tips are only serviced by one person per shift, which made tracking
very easy. The technicians were to record any plugged tips on a log sheet
made for each weld cell.
Within the first 24-hour period the difference
was noticeable. With 6 of the 8 weld cells having downtime for clogged
tips that were either cleaned or changed. The two cells with the POWER
LINER experienced no downtime for dirty tips.
The second 24-hour period yielded the same
results. The impurities could be seen coming out through the gas holes on
the diffusers of the test cells, but the dirt and shavings were not being
driven into the tip causing the wire to stop feeding.
This innovative product fixed our temporary wire
problem. I would recommend trying the POWER LINER anywhere down time from
clogged tips is an issue.
