Better Welding Performance and 93% Reduction in Power Surges
JANDA built a flash welder for a company producing special bridge supports. During testing, they measured 1,500 amp surges on the power line caused by the machine. The challenge was that this power consumption was more than the power company would allow. Testing with a conventional SCR control resulted in the machine blowing the focuses on the telephone pole and causing a blackout on the entire block.
Janda reached out to WeldComputer for a control that would prevent the high power surges without compromising welding performance.
