MITUSA Gantry roll planishers use up to 20,000 pounds of pressure between
a hard steel roll and the planisher mandrel. The force between the hard
planisher roll and steel mandrel
tooling can eliminate the weld bead crown blending into the base
metals. Planishing also provides improved weld strength as well as cosmetic
look of a no weld smooth appearance on the final planished surface.
The supported part's seam weld bead is smashed with programmable variable
pressure settings into the base metal. While using the proper size planisher
harden steel roll and solid hard steel mandrel to prevent part size change.
This will cold work and eliminate the weld crown with adjustable force
without distorting your parts size.
Small diameter tubular parts like bellows are perfect for our design of
bellows and tube planishing applications where strength and weld bead
blending is needed. Special custom designs for thin gauge metal small
diameter tube planisher.
The planishing weld bead 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
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 rams
travel speed. 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. Gantry planisher applications are cones, bellows, tubes, flat
plate, sheet steel, for aerospace, food, chemicals, aeronautics metal
fabrication and finishing.
