Timers & Weld Control Systems
The basic systems, such as our Westken T1AP1 & MINIPAK timers, are used on simple foot operated spot welders control only time and heat. On older versions the timer system only controlled time, heat adjustment was by means of a tapping switch, much the same as a 160amp oil bath welder.
Slightly better versions of timer like the Westken T1AP4 control can control the operation of the air cylinder, allow for one weld to take place and allow for heat adjustment of this weld.
The Westken Weldpak MPS-08 can control the air cylinder, allows for two welds to take place in the same program, can pulse the weld for welding material like hot dip galvanized plate and have up to eight individually settable programs.
And finally, our top of the range timer control the Westken Masterweld 15. Welding quality assured by maintaining weld current regardless of mains voltage fluctuations and/or variations of welding load. The "Masterweld 15" uses a close-loop feedback system back to the welding controller, with either constant current or phased heat control options and up to 15 selectable welding schedules.
