GAP UniCoating V2.0

Universal Coating System

Castolin Eutectic´s GAP UniCoating V2.0 integrates all components necessary for the overlay welding of round parts. Well suited to the Glass Mould industry for baffle and bottom plates. Also very efficient at welding various forge dies and moulds as well as engine valves. With the 200 kg table the machine is capable of handling the smallest parts as well as moderately large ones. The GAP UniCoating V2.0 incorporates a complete Plasma power source. This unit uses the latest technology in plasma welding. With fully programmable gas controls, pilot arc settings, powder delivery and welding current the GAP UniCoating can deliver a completely repeatable, precisely engineered weld overlay. Welding parts can be coated in one welding cycle in one layer or multilayer
(also with vertical/horizontal offset).
