Kemper GmbH has introduced the
autodark® series of welding helmets
comprising the professional 760
model, the basic 560i/560x, and advanced models 660i and 660x.
The 760 has a 3.8-in. by 2.7-in.
range of vision and has achieved value 1 in terms of optical quality, light
diffusion, field-of-vision homogeneity, and angle dependence.
An optimized head support offers
wearing comfort. The IR/UV protection level is 16, and the sensitiveness
and lightening delay can be set using
a control on the outside of the helmet.
The helmet also is equipped with a

its MultiStrike® tungsten electrodes
were designed to address the growing concerns about the radiotoxic
thoria present in standard red-tipped
The electrode reportedly strikes an
arc 10 times more than a red-tipped
thoriated tungsten when tested under
Suitable for various welding operations, the electrodes are particularly
suited for AC and DC welding of titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum
in applications such as aerospace,
petrochemicals, and automotive.
Each electrode packet carries total
The ball screw feed, 5,000 RPM Vanguard drill lines from Ficep are compatible with all types of tooling.
The direct-drive spindle prevents
power loss at the tool. The ball screw
feed permits tapping, countersinking,
and counterboring. Other features
include rack-and-pinion positioning
on all axes; scribing (directly downloaded from DSTV files) available
on up to four sides; six-position automatic tool changers available for
each spindle; and capability for tandem placement with one of the company’s band saws or plasma robots.
Magnetic Drill With Automatic Feed
CS Unitec’s MAB 825 V portable
magnetic drill features an automatic
feed mechanism with power retraction, which makes it suitable for production applications.
The 16-amp, double-insulated reversible motor has a 4-speed oil bath
gearbox (40-110, 65-175, 140-360,
220-600 RPM) for applications requiring high power.
With infinitely variable torque con-
trol and full-wave electronics, the drill
cuts holes up to 4 in. dia. in structural
steel and other metals. Additional ca-
pabilities include twist drilling and
reaming up to 1¼ in. dia., tapping up
to 11⁄ 8 in. dia., and countersinking up
to 2 in. A 10-in. stroke length makes
the drill suitable for steel engineering
and plant construction.
The unit has a quick-change key-
less cutter system for ¾-in. Weldon
shanks. Among its integrated sensors
are magnet overheating protection,
visual magnet adhesion indication,
and an electronic safety shutoff sen-
sor that automatically shuts down the
drill motor if the magnet, which has a
holding force of 6,600 lbs., loses con-
tact with the material.
An internal cable routing system
helps protect the motor power cord
from external damage.
