British company PWM (Pressure Welding Machines) Ltd celebrated 30th years of service to the wire and cable industry on stand 9B41 at wire 2014 on the 8th April 2014 in Düsseldorf
PWM, based in Kent, England, designs, manufactures and supplies high-performance cold welding machines and dies to wire and cable manufacturers worldwide.
PWM’s first machines were small, manually operated cold welders for joining fine wire and strip. The M10, M25, and M30 models for wire sizes 0.10mm to 1.80mm, are all still produced today.
Over the years, PWM gradually expanded its range and introduced larger, powered cold welders, including the P1500 rod welder for joining large rod sections up to 30mm diameter. Recent innovations include the portable air/hydraulic powered HP100 and HP200 machines, which provide effortless welds on wire and strip 1mm to 5mm and 2mm to 6.50mm. All PWM machines and dies are precision engineered in-house to stringent quality standards by PWM’s own team of skilled engineers and technicians.
PWM now employs 19 people in the UK and has a worldwide network of experienced agents who, together with the UK team, provide fast and effcient on-site support with full back-up and after-sales service.
PWM’s on-going research and development programme ensures that it continues to offer wire and cable manufacturers the most advanced and comprehensive range of cold welders in the world. To explain the cold weld process, the company recently developed a series of videos demonstrating the technique, which can be viewed at www.pwmltd.co.uk
