Batch and Strip Models

Strip and Batch Electron Beam Welding Machines

Continuous strip and batch welders are suitable for large production batches and for joining two or three dissimilar metals.

A batch or continuous strip machine will allow you to weld continuous strips, rather than individual components – reducing labour and material costs.

Typical components include:

  • Metal strips
  • Sensors
  • Relays

This process is used in many industries.

Batch Model

The batch model has high-efficiency and is suitable for bi-metallic or tri-metallic welding. Find full details below or download the datasheet.
