Inverter Welding Technology



The purpose of this Bulletin_88 is to provide links to Online Sources.

Inverter Welding Technology is universally implemented in all modern welding power sources.

Also in many other applications only marginally involved with welding or cutting (like Positioners) or not involved at all.

The development of this technology was allowed by the progress in design and production of electronic devices, nowadays reliable and sturdy enough for continuous industrial applications.

The most visible advantages of inverter installations refer to substantial reduction in weight and size of transformers for given power level and duty cycle. Equally important is the economy of use due to improved electrical efficiency.

Performance is claimed to be more adaptable to workpiece material and requirements, because suitable waveforms can be selected, and pulses polarity, frequency, duration and level are under complete control and exactly repeatable, while input voltage fluctuations are compensated for by built-in devices.

An article summarizing progress and achievements in Inverter Welding Technology was published (7) in issue 120 of Practical Welding Letter for August 2013.

The Online Resources listed in this Bulletin_88 offer a wide range of publications presenting information on the above matters.

The references published in this Bulletin_88 were selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_88 were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms.

If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.".

These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).

If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines.

In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the downloaded selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.

You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_88 Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
