Thermatool's new generation of High Power HF tube and pipe welding systems incorporates HAZControl™ Technology - designed to deliver precise heat input control with independent control of weld power and frequency on each and every mill run. High Power HF Welders from 800kW to 1,800kW now feature HAZControl™ Technology, the key to precise weld heat input control.
HAZControl™ Technology (HCT™) simplifies the complex relationship between the key HF welding variables: heat (power), HAZ width (frequency), vee length, and mill speed.
The combination of selecting the precise power and frequency offers pipe and tube manufacturers the flexibility to produce the best weld on any tube or pipe mill with virtually any material type.
HCT™ uses predictive algorithms to calculate the initial recommended HF welding frequency and power settings.
The operator enters all necessary tube or pipe and then stores it for future use in the HCT™ database. HCT™ setup screens store product parameters in a simple table that allows users to later edit and recall process recipes as production requirements change.
