The Orion 100c is the reliable welding tool that every jeweller, dental technician, metalsmith and mould and die manufacturer's should have.
Save time doing simple and complicated work such as seam joints, filling porosity, adding metal, attaching different size pieces, or any other application you may encounter. Increase efficiency with this easy to use system!
The Orion welds all precious metals, along with steel, stainless steel, vitallium, cobalt chrome etc, invaluable for dental technicians, horologists and jewellers alike!
The Orion 100c provides power up to 100 joules of pulse-arc weld energy. The 100c also allows for low power needs — yielding as little as 3 joules of energy. The 100c power is adjustable in 0.5-joule increments. Weld large workpieces, or near precious components with this versatile, compact, and easy-to-use system.
Pulse Arc welding uses electrical energy to create a plasma discharge. The high-temperature plasma, in turn, melts metal in a small spot. This process takes place in milliseconds. The process is clean and very controllable – perfect for intricate and minute welding applications on precious and non-precious metals!. Filler metal can also be added to build up joints and create strong and reliable weld “beads”, or weld seams.
The Orion is a pulse-arc welder and a capacitive discharge resistance welder in one. This combination of abilities allows for infinite creative possibilities. In its Tack Mode, the Orion can be used to temporarily position parts before welding or soldering. In its Pulse Arc Mode, the Orion can be used to perform permanent welds, add metal, and do a variety of other amazing and time-saving applications.
The Orion pulse welders are suitable for all welding applications in many trades including:
Dental - Dental laboratory technicians benefit in fabrication and reconstructive repair procedures, including new cast clasp assembly, loops and posts for tooth additions, cast extensions for existing partials, new wrought wire single-arm clasping, as well as many other common laboratory welding services. The weld produced is localised which is excellent for seam welds and eliminates thermal expansion on passive fit bridgework, implant bars and frames, and other common dental prosthetic connections. Suitable for most dental alloys including Titanium, Vitallium, Gold, Palladium and Platinum.
Jewellery - Delicate repair jobs such as re-tipping prongs can be done with ease and without the removal of stones, making the job in hand quick, efficient and very accurate. Welding heads to shanks can be done with the ease and eliminates much cleaning up afterwards. Platinum ring sizing can be done without leaving the dark grey line as is usually found when soldering with traditional methods. The Orion pulse welders enable you to repair almost all types of jewellery on site which adds a massive benefit to your services offered to your clients.
Horology - When refurbishing or repairing watches, case and bracelet repairs can be done on gold, stainless steel or bi metal bracelets with ease. Obsolete parts that have been damaged or broken can be welded together avoiding expensive replacement parts and long waiting times for both you and your customers. Steel clock parts that have been cracked such as mainsprings can be strengthened with the laser.
Mould and Die Repair - When a die loses an edge or a mould has porosity, you can easily build up the damaged area or fill with metal wire and re-shape to repair your dies and moulds. A far cheaper and quicker way to repair than replace a mould or die. More precise than TIG welders, and leaves far less overflow to clean up. Stylus extensions and head and eye protection available to extend your working range to 10ft available upon request.
PLEASE NOTE: These units need a PURE ARGON gas supply which you can purchase from any local welding suppliers. We recommend that you purchase a bottle with a built-in regulator and a 6mm push fit fitting. If you have any troubles, please contact us.
