Systems limitations

  • Round wire 0.1 … 6.0 mm Ø; cross section up to 30 mm2
  • Flat wire width up to 15 mm; cross section up to 30 mm2
  • We expect problems in application of irregular profiles (sealing in cooling, contact on short circuit roll)
  • Performance in range 5 … 250 kW
  • Problems in case of insulated surfaces (for instance Al2O3)
  • Burn points are possible in case of bad maintenance
  • A straight line in wire is not possible
  • Not suitable for carbon steel
  • Problems in case of very high annealing temperatures (for instance stainless steel) with surface in cooling liquid
