Features and Benefits

THE BENCHMARK FOR MULTI-PROCESS WELDING

The mechanized APEX® 3 Series welding systems set up quickly and deliver precision calculation and control of travel time, weld distance, weld speed and other essential variables. As a central component of these systems, the HELIX M85 Weld Head can be used for all of your orbital and plate welding needs – from GMAW and FCAW to GTAW and Hot Wire Laser. The HELIX M85 Weld Head provides the operator consistent, high-quality welds with little or no time wasted on setup or rework.

Because of its simple design, the HELIX M85 weld head removes the steep learning curve that is required with most other orbital equipment. All of the motors and harnesses are packaged inside the weld head, reducing visual confusion when working in the shop and providing protection from harsh environments when out in the field.

Designed to be as light weight and compact as possible without sacrificing durability, its low axial clearance enables welding close to flanges and other obstructions near the joint. Major upgrades can be simply accomplished with limited technical capability due to the digital nature of the weld head. To add onboard wire-feeding capability, only a simple Allen wrench is required. Everything else just plugs in line with the common control cable.
