EXTENDS SERVICING CAPABILITIES TO EQUIPMENT OWNERS
Designed to streamline orbital welding power supply
maintenance, Swagelok Company introduces the new Swagelok® M200
portable calibration unit. The advanced M200 portable calibration unit
delivers on-site power supply maintenance, providing added convenience, reduced
costs, and improved efficiencies that can cut servicing timelines from
days to minutes.
The calibration unit allows for immediate calibration of a Swagelok welding system M200 power supply. Many quality systems require orbital welding power supplies to be calibrated periodically. Traditional calibration processes are completed offsite at a designated service location; leaving operations idling or needing to incur extra expense with rental equipment. Portable calibration helps minimize down time, which is key for remote or secured environments; such as, offshore oil drilling platforms, nuclear plants, and government sites that cannot easily arrange power supply transport to and from service centers.
The M200 portable calibration unit is designed with enhanced technology focused on promoting efficiency through the welding process. On-screen navigation on the M200 power supply prompts users to initiate the calibration process. The calibration unit then performs various diagnostics and measures output levels. The calibration unit is designed to specifically calibrate based on critical welding variables including:
- Current – Automatic calibration to ensure proper current output for future welds.
- Voltage – Provision of simple, on-screen adjustments to match actual values with expected values.
- Travel speed – Electrode travel speed is verified and adjusted real-time via the M200 operating software, eliminating the need for frequent calibration. This verification is displayed and documented as part of the calibration software, making documentation easier for users.
