The Puk Power U4 precision welder from Gesswein was specifically developed for mold and die repairs. Using micro-TIG technology, the welder produces small, consistent spot welds that penetrate the mold surface. According to the company, the resulting welded areas are strong enough to withstand the pressures and working conditions of the molding process. All heat is concentrated at the spot of the weld, thereby eliminating the possibility of distortion and metal stress caused by overheating.

Preprogrammed for most tool and die repairs, the welder is mobile and can be used directly at the press site, where the base attaches directly to the mold.
