Using up to 20,000 pounds of pressure between a harden steel roll and the
planisher mandrel pressure can eliminate the weld bead crown into the
weldment. This provides improved weld strength as well as cosmetic no weld
blend appearance on the welded parts.
The supported part's seam weld bead is smashed with variable pressure
settings into the base metal. While using the proper size planisher roll and
solid steel mandrel to prevent part size change. This will cold work and
eliminate the weld crown with adjustable force without distorting your part.
Perfect for planishing weld seams on any size tube or pipe. This weld
finish process can eliminate the weld into a seamless looking welded part.
Weld seam planishing increases the weld's strength and a cosmetic seamless
weld appearance, replacing the time consuming grinding process, while
producing a better looking appearance.
The Roll Gantry Planishers use various diameter steel rolls and mandrels
to flatten and eliminate the weld crown. The pressure wheel is mounted on a
travel carriage where air ram pump exerts pressure between the part and
planisher roll. The welded part is mounted on the mandrel where it remains
stationary during the hands free safe planishing operation. Engineered to
provide many part shapes and sizes can be planished using a combination of
different wheel surface profiles or support mandrel geometries.
The motorized planisher gantry carriage travels on four linear rail
bearing blocks. Powered by a 2 Hp electric motor, the carriage contains an 8
inch/203mm stroke air ram pump. The hand wheel is used to adjust the ram?s
travel. Our gantry weld planisher has special control panel plus operator
safety screen made of expanded metal.
Weld Planishers are some of the most useful tools to improve welds
cosmetic appearance as well improving the welded metal joint's strength.
Welding planishers are often used from everything from aerospace parts and
devices to common stainless kitchen sinks.
MITUSA, Inc. Weld Planisher designs are for carbon steel, aluminum,
stainless, Inconel, copper or bronze metal weld bean removed by pressure
blending. Our company offers standard gantry and longitudinal welding
planishers. Let our engineering group design a roll planisher for your
special welding fabrication application.
Weld planishing is best for thinner gage metals with lower bead profiles.
