In the world of precision welding, the tools you choose can make or break the efficiency of your operations. One such vital tool is the welding head, and few can match the versatility and efficiency of the Model 9 series of AMI orbital welding heads. Designed for fusion (TIG) welding of tubes, pipes, fittings, or other cylindrical components, these weld heads cater to a vast range of applications across numerous industries.
Key Features of the AMI Model 9 Weld Head
From accommodating various diameters to integrating a two-sided clamping mechanism, the Model 9 series is packed with features designed to enhance your welding process. The Model 9 series can handle diameters from 3/32” (2,3 mm) to 7.5” (190,5 mm) OD, and wall thicknesses from 0.01” (0,25 mm) to 0.16” (4 mm). This wide range makes them suitable for a diverse range of projects.
These weld heads come with easily replaceable, size-specific clamps to accommodate different tube sizes, enhancing the versatility of your operations. The standard Model 9 incorporates a two-sided clamping mechanism. This design holds the tube clamp inserts so the workpiece can be welded in line eliminating the need for tack welding.
Flip-Up Viewing Window
Several models in the series incorporate a flip-up viewing window, enabling easy verification of fit-up and ensuring proper alignment for precise welding.
Built-In Water Cooling
Most Model 9 weld heads feature a water cooling system for both the cables and internal weld head components. This feature allows for increased duty-cycles, ensuring uninterrupted performance even during long welding sessions.
Variations of the Model 9 Series
The Model 9 series isn't a one-size-fits-all solution; it includes variants like the -E and -ER series, each offering its own unique advantages.
Standard Model 9 Weld Head
The standard Model 9 weld head comes packed with all the essential features, offering reliable performance for a wide range of applications.
The -E and -ER Series
The main difference between the AMI 9E and 9ER series is that the 9ER series is equipped with a remote control system. This feature allows the operator to adjust the welding parameters from a remote location, enhancing flexibility and ease of use.
