Pipemaster 516

The latest generation of Pipemaster controllers are the result of a new direction in power source design. Pipemaster 516 brings the benefits of digital technology to the orbital welding customer: unparalleled accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. Digital technology forever eliminates the need for periodic weld head calibration – motor speeds and response characteristics remain accurate and stable regardless of wear, and weld heads can be interchanged without time-consuming calibration.

  • Multi-pass welding of pipes/tubes/tubesheets
  • Full function capability (torch rotation, filler wire feed, electronic arc gap control, electronic oscillation)
  • Operates all models of Magnatech weld heads (GTAW process)
  • Current programming and pulsing controlled by Pipemaster controller – not the power supply
  • Amperage output determined by power source selection • Autoranging power input eliminates all internal modifications
  • Up to 100 levels per program (time-based programs)
  • Stores 100 weld programs internally
  • Auto Program automatically generates procedures
  • Programming and operation guided by simple prompts
  • Teach mode allows rapid program development
  • Programmable “override limits” provide supervisory control
  • Weld parameter monitoring/out-of-limits reporting for QA/QC purposes
  • Transfer programs and QC data to PC using USB flash drive/memory key
  • AutoTack automatically generates tack weld programs
  • Large color LCD pendant display
  • Stainless steel case
  • Help files provide immediate information/ assistance
  • Password protection of key functions
  • Waterproof pendant with 7.6 m (25’) cable
  • Auto rewind feature unwraps cable at weld completion
  • All weld head functions capable of synchronization with pulsed current output
  • Selectable position or time-based programming
  • The integral switch prevents welding without torch gas flow
  • Bluetooth printer option
  • Detachable coolant recirculation with integral flow switch protection
  • Meets applicable NEMA, CE, CSA standards
