Amada Miyachi America announces the new IPB-5000A-MU inverter resistance welding power supply, which features a modified back panel that accommodates most AMA weld heads.
The new IPB-5000A-MU is the latest version of the IPB series, well known for delivering superior welding control for a wide range of microjoining applications. When paired with the ITB-780A6 transformer, the IPB-5000A-MU has a maximum output of 6000 amps, making it ideal for most resistive and conductive welding applications. It operates in constant current, voltage, or power feedback modes and can also weld in a combo mode (current and voltage) to address even the most challenging application or process conditions.
All of the new models feature built-in current monitoring capabilities. Some units are also capable of displacement monitoring which includes part detection, initial part stack up, displacement during weld (amount the parts have collapsed during welding) and weld to displacement (shuts energy off when set displacement is met). By setting envelope limits, it is possible to immediately determine if the weld was good or not.
