The SR-80 is a universal capacitance discharge welder specifically designed for the fast and efficient production of thermocouple measuring junctions and other fine wire welds.
Three selectable power ranges are provided allowing for fine adjustment of the weld power. This is particularly useful when welding very fine wires. Wires of dissimilar and similar metals including copper can be welded.
A wait lamp with interlock is fitted to prevent the user from using the welder until the current set charge is reached, a facility for connecting Argon is provided for use when very clean welds are required e.g. when welding platinum wires; and a footswitch is also included to allow hands free operation.
