A.T.S. is qualified supplier for molded copper alloy electrodes called TIPS.
In resistance welding, this particular type of copper alloy electrodes, being molded and therefore produced in greater quantities but with a reduced number of processes, have the advantage of being cheaper than common welding electrode models.
TIPS copper alloy electrodes, in fact, are particularly used for those applications that require a strong wear of the electrode during the welding cycle or in robotic welding systems.
There are several models of TIPS electrodes, which differ in the geometry of the electrode tip itself.
We switch from the TIPS electrode in copper alloy with flat tip to those with a rounded tip; this difference allows us to use the best electrode for each type of welding.
The most substantial difference between the electrode TIPS and CAPS, both molded welding electrodes, lies in the cone of the electrode itself.
In fact, the TIPS electrodes have a male cone that will be grafted into its conical female seat, while the CAPS electrodes are built with female cone that will then be inserted into the male conical seat.
