Amada Miyachi America Inc. — a manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micro-machining equipment and systems — has launched the new MM-410A handheld resistance weld checker. The MM-410A is ideal for monitoring and troubleshooting issues in production. The compact unit supports a wide range of resistance welding technologies, including AC, DC inverter, AC inverter, transistor, and capacitive discharge.
Ideal for use in process troubleshooting, the MM-410A can correlate waveform and numeric data with process results, providing detailed weld data for process optimization and validation. If used continuously in a production environment, it reduces scrap by detecting drifts in the weld process, alerting operators before process failure.
The MM-410A also reduces the frequency of destructive testing and provides an independent way of monitoring the welding power supply by detecting any drifts in welding power supply calibration.
The unit offers ISO17657-compliant measurement for current (when used with available ISO-compliant toroidal coil). Set-up is easy, using the 5.7-inch color touch panel. The unique seam welding mode monitors AC current and voltage or DC voltage for up to five minutes. Data storage is also available by using an onboard flash drive.
The MM-410A offers Ethernet (TCP/IP), and RS-232/485 communication. Accessories include toroidal coils, force sensors, and current/force sensors. Multi-language support is also available and includes English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, German, and French.
