Orbitalum Smart Welder OM180

The standard in orbital welding machines, the Orbitalum Smart Welder, is a computer-controlled automatic welding power supply designed for use with water-cooled fusion weld heads to weld high-purity pipe and tubes automatically.  The orbital welders of tomorrow, today, these state-of-the-art systems allow information recording and retrieval with sharing possible through optional network connectivity and Industry 4.0 IIoT communication technology standards.

  • The new standard for Fabrication and Cleanrooms
  • Ideal for Pharmaceutical, Semiconductor, and Aerospace Applications
  • Easy to use high-resolution touchscreen interface
  • Digital welding purge gas flow control and monitoring
  • Flow Force significantly reduces pre-purge and post-purge gas cycles and improves weld purge quality
  • Simple automatic program generation is standard for multiple weld schedule types
  • Network connectivity by IoT/Industry 4.0 technology
  • Wide input voltage variation, 110-230V 50/60Hz, 1-phase, no dedicated power required
  • 100% electronic data recording of all welding parameters with print capability
  • High-efficiency internal water cooling system increases weld head life and cools the weld head during operation
  • Dual weld data printing function (onboard and external)
  • Password to select operation or welding program modes
  • Connector for optional ORBmax oxygen monitor welding accessory to monitor oxygen levels in the head for making highly-repeatable superior welds
  • Optional Orbitwin weld head switching unit connection is built-in. The OrbiTwin improves productivity allowing the use of multiple heads on the same power supply.
