Benefits Of The X8 WeldCENTER™

Most Compact Welder

X8 WeldCENTER™ is the most compact welder in the market which provides easy, fast and safe operation because of smart empowering features. Lowest running costs because of the simple design that leads to less wear and tear. Highest quality in parts and service for reliable production.

SmartCONTROL™

A powerful I-PC (industrial PC) in combination with an advance software eliminates the limits of PLC’s (programmable logic controllers) and boots the handling and monitoring remarkably, worldwide wireless access included. The welder is operated over an easy to use and top relyable iPad operators panel.  The software is structured so simple, it can really be operated intuitional.

PacemakerMicro™

This compact static frequency inverter combines up to date digital processor technology for a very safe and easy to use operation with a remarkable power boost as a side effect. The unit is equipped to all fully automatic Can Man welders but can also be used to upgrade other types and brands of welders.

QuickChangePLUS

As a logical consequence of the Can Man idea for a fully automatic height change, chang­ing the height with the X8 is a matter of seconds as the downstacker can be equipped with this feature. With an AC Linear Servo drive (patents pending), mechanical components (and wear parts!) are impressively minimized.

XPlane™

Another real breakthrough which is a standard on all Can Man welders is the “fixed welding plane”. With this feature, time consuming and difficult setting of the welding plane after regrooving the welding rollerheads becomes obsolete. No more hassles with pendulum rollerhead angles or finding the correct height of the calibration crowns, the z – bar tip (headpiece) or the exit conveyor. Adjust only what you‘ve changed!

PowerCURE™ Integration

The integration of the induction curing system PowerCURE™ leads to the most compact welder-curing-combination. Canbodies are transported scratchfree in hanging position on the V-shaped magnetic belts with no risk of damages of belts or coil due to a jam in the downline and the applied powder is cured within only 1 meter!

Softwire

Our wire drive system does measure the speed of the wire through the tension in the wire loop. Therefore it is not necessary to finetune anything after regrooving and the wire can not break due to mishandling. An overlacquering control system does further protect the wire from breakage.

Accessories

Blank measuring unit

A good can starts with a good blank. To do important offline controls we provide the blank measuring unit to ensure that cutting tolerances are kept within the lmits.

Cold pressure welder

With the cold pressure welder two ends of copper wire can be welded together if the copper wire coil is empty or after a wire break. Welding the two ends together avoids the job of re-threading the copper wire which can be a quite time-consuming job, especially on aged welders and welders of other brands because the wiring is complicated.

Spring back tester

Easy but efficient - with the spring back tester material hardnesses can be tested very easily. Such a check can be made when sheets are entering the plant to make sure that the material is supplied as ordered as well as on the slitter. Material-differences in regards of hardness and temper which might result in waste or down time cost much more money than a control device.

Welding roller dressing unit

Professional and exact profiling of the welding roll is an important factor for a smooth canbody production. With Can Man's dressing unit this job can be done on a high quality standard, no matter which brand of welding roll is used.
