Machine Category: FULLY AUTOMATIC


Solatron Enterprises is famous for itsí Bridgewire Welding technology.  During the past 20 years this technology has been used mostly on the Initiator Bridgewire Welding Machines. These machines consists of several stations, including a Dual- Weld station (see below), which are mounted around a servo driven rotary table. The length of the bridge is automatically adjusted using the average of the resistance readings from the parts it has produced. Vision systems (on select machines) has also been used to adjust the length as well as the position of the Bridgewire.


Our weld heads are designed to produce Bridgewires that are very precise and repeatable in regards to their length and the position of the weld.
