New work tool for the Aerospace Industry

A new Resistance Welding tool for the Aerospace industry has just been made available for the first time.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Limited has released for sale the new Swivel Head Force Gauge, specifically designed for measuring the force between the electrodes in resistance welders used in many welding applications in the aerospace industry.

This new model replaces the old fixed head resistance welding force gauge as well as the old swivel head version and combines the features of both models into one gauge at a much more attractive price while retaining the rugged construction and ease of use that is necessary for this kind of tool.

The new all in one model measures force from 0 - 1,000 kg with ranges changeable between kg, N, and lb. The swivelling and rotating head assembly allows easy access to weld electrode configurations in tight spaces.

This tough but lightweight hand tool weighs only 1085g and has a safety handle to prevent operator injury in the event that electrodes are misaligned.

A wrist strap is provided in the event that the gauge is inadvertently released by the operator, to prevent the gauge from being dropped.

The large target pads allow easy access by electrodes up to 20 mm diameter and virtually all configurations of electrodes can be accommodated.

This new HFT gauge is classed as accurate to 0.2 % of reading that equates to a possible error of 2kg at full scale.

It also has an automatic peak hold facility to retain and hold the peak force measurement thus enabling the reading to be retrieved if the large LCD screen was not visible to the operator at the time the test was made.

Other features include two mounting positions for the safety handle, a facility for the operator to zero the gauge with one press of a button, replaceable insulated target pads, a rechargeable battery in an easily removed tray, a smart and rugged carrying case, a 110-220v battery charger and a calibration certificate.
