BUILDING UPON A GREAT PLATFORM
The HELIX® M45 is the second innovation to our HELIX M Series orbital weld heads. Like the HELIX M85 weld head, the HELIX M45 weld head is designed on the Power Wave® platform for advanced / multi-process capabilities. It embodies all of the same features, functions and ruggedness of the HELIX M85, but in a low-profile package. With a radial clearance of 4.5″ (114 mm), The HELIX M45 weld head easily allows welding in areas with physical constraints.
DESIGNED WITH THE OPERATOR IN MIND
Intuitive ergonomic design offers tool-less adjustments from a color scheme of knobs and handles. Color coding the latch and clutch handles has made mounting the weld head to a flat track or track ring almost effortless.
Comparable to the HELIX M85 weld head, the M45 weld head’s digital platform automatically calibrates the motion axes, requiring no manual intervention from an operator or technician. Our digital platform offers many advantages including simple troubleshooting, go or no-go type testing, and lightweight, cost-effective cabling. Built into the weld head’s design is the ability to make upgrades for future feature and technology enhancements, extending the life of the system and minimizing product obsolescence.
SIZED JUST RIGHT FOR THE JOB
The HELIX M45 is well equipped, incorporating a 2″ (51 mm) torch height stroke length and a 5″ (127 mm) oscillation stroke length. Extended stroke lengths are available from 5″ (127 mm) to 15″ (381 mm) for the torch height stroke and up to 24″ (610 mm) for the oscillation stroke length.
