Residual analyser SMKY 2

SMKY 2 is the second generation of the residual analyser for wire electrodes and rods for arc and beam welding, which has proven itself for more than 15 years. 

Functional principle:

An approximately 25 cm long piece of the wire electrode to be analysed is clamped into the device and heated to just below the melting temperature by an adjustable current pulse of a maximum of 10 s and 250 A. The electrode is then heated nearly to the melting temperature. During this process, residues present on the surface of the wire electrode evaporate and are completely captured by a sensor.
The sensor measures the total amount of smoke produced and this is displayed both graphically and as a numerical value on the screen. Several measurements can be combined and an average value can be calculated automatically. 

Parameter sets are stored for the most important materials (steel, aluminium, CrNi and copper alloys) and can be easily called up.

The software can be extended for integration into production systems. For example, a barcode scanner can be used to set the test parameters for a specific product or to store the test results externally together with a batch number.
