What is a welding rotator?

The welding rotator is auxiliary welding equipment. It uses the friction between the welding workpiece and the roller to drive the cylindrical (or conical) welding workpiece to rotate. The welding rotator is often used in combination with the welding manipulator. They can weld the inner and outer longitudinal seams and inner and outer circumferential seams of cylindrical workpieces.
The welding rotator consists of a base, a power driving device, active and driven rollers, and other structures. The welding rotator mainly uses the driving device to perform the active rotator operation, and there will be friction between the active rotator and the cylindrical workpiece. This friction force can mainly drive the rotation of the workpiece, thereby realizing effective displacement. Let the inner and outer circumferential seams and inner and outer longitudinal seams of the cylindrical workpiece be in the horizontal position where welding is needed, and the welding manipulator can realize automatic welding work. This can not only improve welding quality to the greatest extent but also effectively improve work efficiency.

Why does the workpiece move on the welding rotator?

When using the welding rotator, the rotator and the weldment are round and the length is the same, and the axis is also parallel, it will not cause movement. If one of the rollers of the roller frame is broken, the selection of the workpiece on the roller frame may cause movement. Of course, if the shape or size of the workpiece is irregular, it will also cause movement. This is because the axis of the rotator and the axis of the workpiece are not parallel.

What are the effects of using the welding rotator on the processing quality?

In the welding process, the welding rotator will be used to complete the related operations. The design and production of the rotator frame use advanced technology, and at the same time achieve the application purpose through the automatic tracking system, so that the positioning is more accurate. When processing and producing through the roller rack, the process design can be carried out according to the operating requirements, so that the roller rack can better meet the needs of the industry.
In the process of processing and production, any problems encountered can be analyzed, and controlled, and adjusted through appropriate methods. In addition, the welding rotator will be tested with appropriate process parameters, which can make the parameter setting more reasonable, make the processing operation and the equipment setting consistent, and achieve better operation control effects.
When processing through the welding rotator, the welding process is more stable and reliable. It can reduce the probability of failure, and can also achieve a good isolation effect, prevent air from entering the equipment, and the equipment will not be affected by the high-temperature environment.
The use of a welding rotator can improve the quality of processing operations. Make the product processing and production effect more reasonable and achieve a more ideal application effect.

What are the roller materials of the welding roller?

The welding roller is a device that is often used in usual welding operations. Its main component is the scroll wheel. There are many kinds of rollers, the most common ones are polyurethane rollers and steel rubber combination wheels. Users can purchase according to their own needs. But you need to know the difference between them.
The polyurethane roller used on the welding roller is made of organic polymer material polyurethane. It has good oil resistance, toughness, abrasion resistance, and aging resistance. And its tensile strength, tear strength, abrasion strength, and other properties are also much higher than ordinary rubber.
The characteristics of steel-plastic composite rollers are large pressure-bearing capacity and long life of rubber wheels. Because its main drive worm adopts ZC arc tooth cylindrical worm. The worm tooth surface has also undergone special treatment such as quenching and grinding. So it has the characteristics of high efficiency and long life.

How to clean the rollers?

During the application process of the welding roller, it is easy to stick dirt. Especially its rollers need to pass a special welding roller rack cleaning agent to clean it. Also, the rollers and other parts on the welding roller need to be removed for cleaning.
The disassembled parts need to be placed in the container. Add professional cleaning agent and water in a ratio of 1:5 for simple cleaning. Pay attention not to invade for too long. Then use a clean cloth dipped in a 1:5 cleaning agent to wipe the entire welding roller rack to clean and remove surface stains.
Wait until all parts on the welding roller are cleaned. Need to use a dry cloth to wipe clean, pour the original curing agent specially prepared, and wipe the surface of the roller frame. Then install all the disassembled parts to keep them intact.
