Orbimatic GmbH has introduced the Orbiweld 12 and VK19 Water Cooled Micro Weld Head, for welding the small-bore tube and micro weld fittings used in the fabrication of high-purity stainless steel pipelines for the semiconductor and electronics industry. These heads can even weld micro fitting to micro fitting and will easily accommodate VCR type fittings. Tube and fittings are held securely during the welding process by a triple clamping action. This system also allows this weld head to be used in locations where space is a premium. The VK19 weld head can be used for single-handed operation with a side mounted latching for securing the clamps, thereby leaving the second hand free for loading of components. The Orbiweld 12 and VK 19 achieve high production rates because of its extensive water cooling channels. All main functions of the process are controlled on an in-handle control panel.
