ROLL WELD PLANISHER
Using up to 14,000 pounds of force between a steel roll and the supported
part the seam weld nugget is cold worked and reduced in size by the pressure
of the roll weld planisher harden steel roll against the solid mandrel..
Perfect to planishing weld seams on tube or pipe. This weld finish process
can eliminate the weld into a seamless welded part. Weld seam planishing
increases the weld's strength. Little need for time consuming grinding,
while producing a better looking appearance.
Roll Gantry Planisher uses a 6 inch/152mm diameter steel roll to
flatten and eliminate the weld crown. The wheel is mounted to a travel
carriage where an 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 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, aluminum, stainless
welded metal weld bean crown removal. Our company offers standard gantry and
longitudinal welding planishers. Or let our engineering group design one for
your special welding fabrication application. Planishing is best on thinner
gage metals, let us know your planishing fabrication application needs, we
Our company or related companies have been building welding planishers
for over 20 years.
