Well-suited for mold and die applications, the Orion 250i² pulse-arc welder from Sunstone Engineering can repair issues related to high thermal shock and wear, mechanical strain, and corrosion resulting in heat checking. The system, which features 250 joules of available power, can create 0.1-mm-diameter-sized welds on almost any metal. A preheat mode facilitates repairs on heat-tempered metals. According to the company, this type of precision and heat control makes the welder ideal for delicate repairs. Additionally, “Seam Mode” enables as many as 30 continuous welds per second for as many as 5 sec. at a time, or 150 welds in 5 sec.

Seated on a rotatable articulating arm, the welder can be used in virtually any environment, regardless of bench space. A removable electrode stylus also allows for working on almost any surface in almost any location, the company says.
