Coating And Cleaning

A breakthrough in weld spatter build-up prevention, the Spatter-Nix system combines the technology of a high- temperature coating with a non-invasive spatter purging unit that keeps weld torches virtually free from spatter build-up, while greatly extending consumable life.

Baked-On Coating

Spatter-Nix is a unique process that coats the weld tip as well as outside and inside the weld nozzle, preventing spatter build-up and blockage.

Ideal Usage

Spatter-Nix is extremely beneficial in lower voltage and lower amp welding applications using thin sheet metal stampings (0.7mm - 1.0mm). Spatter-Nix is very effective in automobile manufacturing including A, B, and C pillars, body shop work, spot welding, and intermittent or stitch-type welding.

What is Spatter?

During the welding process, arcing causes metal fragments to crystallize, forming a solid mass build-up that is difficult to remove.

Restricted Gas Flow

Spatter build-up can clog the diffuser, blocking the gas flow inside the weld nozzle.

Porosity

Spatter blockage causes porosity in the weld, which leads to costly reaming and weld repairs.

Reaming Equipment

Traditionally, reaming has been a popular method for removing spatter from nozzles. But reaming equipment is expensive, costing up to $5,000 USD.

Costly Maintenance

In addition, reamers require costly maintenance and can cause gas flow blockage deep inside the weld nozzle.

Sprays and Dips

Other options are anti-spatter sprays and dips that, although beneficial, do not sufficiently reduce nozzle and tip cleaning frequency.

A Better Way

The Spatter-Nix system is better and more cost effective. Spatter-Nix allows inert gas to flow freely from the diffuser inside the nozzle, preventing arcing. Spatter-Nix makes reaming unnecessary, reducing the need for periodic maintenance and improving weld quality.

Vibratory Cleaning Unit

The Spatter-Nix system includes a Vibratory Cleaning Unit, which is an optional, noninvasive, spatter purging unit that, when combined with Spatter-Nix coatings, keeps weld torches virtually free from spatter build-up.

The VCU Process

In one step, a variable vibration is applied to the nozzle while air helps flush spatter. Then, if necessary, a spray of Thermal Defender, or similar anti-spatter solution, is applied. Integrating the Vibratory Cleaning Unit into your robotic welding cycle will maintain product quality and increase productivity.
