Welbee welding power sources

Welding has witnessed a remarkable evolution over the years. From the early days of manual processes to sophisticated robotic welding today, welding has continuously adapted to meet the needs of various industries. 

At the forefront of this evolution is the emergence of versatile power sources, such as the Welbee welding power sources by OTC DAIHEN. These cutting-edge systems offer a single solution for a wide range of materials and applications.

Breaking Down the Gas Mixtures

OTC DAIHEN’s advanced power source technology shines in its versatility across a spectrum of materials,Welbee II eliminating the need for specialized gas mixes. This flexibility not only simplifies the welding process but also enhances efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

  • For steel welding, OTC DAIHEN systems operate effectively with gas mixtures ranging from 75% argon and 25% CO2 up to 95% argon and 5% CO2. 
  • For high amperage spray transfer, they operate with gas mixtures ranging from 95% argon and 5% oxygen up to 98% argon and 2% oxygen.
  • For stainless steels, they eliminate the helium-argon-CO2 tri-mixes by using 97% argon and 3% CO2 or 98% argon and 2% CO2 mixes. 

“The OTC DAIHEN advantage is that you can use one power source for all materials, not machines for a specific material,” says OTC DAIHEN R&D Engineer Larry Barley, who is a Certified Welding Inspector and Certified Robotic Arc Welding Technician.

By leveraging this advanced power source technology, users can streamline their welding processes, reduce setup time and optimize resource utilization. Whether working with steel, stainless steel or other materials, manufacturers can rely on a single system to deliver consistent, high-quality results across the board.

Opening Up New Avenues for Manufacturers

From automotive and aerospace to construction and fabrication, the ability to weld various materials with ease enables engineers and designers to push the boundaries of what's possible.

For example, in the automotive sector, where lightweight materials like aluminum and advanced high-strength steels are increasingly used to improve fuel efficiency and safety, versatile welding solutions facilitate the assembly of multi-material complex structures with precision and reliability.
