Sunstone Engineering expands range of capacitive discharge fine spot welders

Sunstone Engineering has expanded the energy range of its production-ready, capacitive discharge fine spot welders, adding the 1,200 Ws model to its existing line, which already includes 200, 400, and 600 Ws models. 

“Sunstone’s CDDP-A welders make [EV] power cell production more efficient in two ways,” says Sunstone President Jonathan Young. “First, as a fine spot welder with digital energy control, the CDDP-A delivers the exact amount and timing of energy to repeatedly deliver the desired weld. Second, our welders are specifically designed for an automated production floor, ready to be connected to a CNC or other automated platform.”

According to Sunstone, the expanded energy range combined with the welder’s touchscreen display provides the operator with significant control. Preset weld schedules can be saved and loaded to other units while all weld settings can be cloned to other units. When paired with a pneumatic weld head, the Sunstone welder can control all aspects of actuation, squeeze time, and release, whether triggered by a foot pedal or digital signal.
