Dual chuck system

Due to the fact that the variety of repaired torque converters during the working day can be quite high, technicians have to deal with torque converters of various sizes. To increase the efficiency of labor, it is necessary to speed up the preparatory and finishing operations. That is why three-jaw self-centering chucks with a manual drive are used as locking elements to accelerate the torque converter installation on the welding stand. It allows technicians to install torque converters with various diameters of the hub and the pilot on the stand without any additional manipulations. Clamping force of chucks is sufficient to lock-up the torque converter during the welding process and to provide the required accuracy at the final stage of repair.

While using collet chucks, it will be necessary to change collets each time when diameters if the hub and pilot of the torque converter being repaired differ from dimensions of the preceding unit, resulting in time-consuming stand readjustments. In case of using adapter sleeves/bushings, there may be some doubts regarding reliability of the torque converter locking, and there is also a chance of a clearance between the bushing and the hub (pilot). The clearance size is a location/positioning error, which subsequently results in misalignment between the hub and the pilot. The misalignment will only increase during welding.

Electronic Control

At the stage of welding it is extremely important to synchronize the torque converter rotation with the moments of welding starts/stops. It is also necessary to have a wide range adjustment for different parameters (rotation speed, number of welding dots, etc). The electronic control system allows technicians to adjust the speed of welding, switching from welding to rotating mode with very high accuracy. This control system allows setting the welding speed by entering the torque converter diameter, which greatly simplifies the welding stand setup. Moreover, it is also possible to change the vertical positioning level of the spindle (upper chuck). In addition, this simple and user-friendly control system makes it easy to change the interface language and measuring units. All the mentioned factors put such a system well above any analog solutions.
