PWM, leading manufacturer of cold pressure welding equipment, has launched a new portable cold welding machine for wire 0.30mm to 1.80mm (.0118” to .071”).

The new CP180 is a small hand-held powered cold welder housed in a handy carry pack. The compact 400mm² pack contains the machine and its two-metre air supply line, the air/hydraulic power system and a supply of machine oil. The unit weighs just 16kg and can be easily moved to the work area as and when required.

The CP180 is operated by a foot pedal and is extremely simple to use. It enables even an untrained operator to produce strong high-quality welds on non-ferrous wire, strip and profile up to 1.80mm (.071”) quickly and without effort.
