The PowerDrive system is an alternative to the PushPull system. It only uses one wirefeeder, namely the WF 25i RD, which is placed at the very end of the robot arm and ensures reliable and constant wirefeeding. This dynamic wirefeeding feature enables the PMC Mix Drive process to be used, which makes its mark in aluminium applications in particular.

The focus here lies on the interplay between the optimal weld seam appearance and welding speed while maintaining consistent quality.
The refined CrashBox dramatically reduces the load on the torch body in the event of a collision. This minimises the force impact of the load immediately following the collision, preventing damage to the torch body and drive unit. The extremely high reset accuracy (+/- 0.05 mm) allows production to be quickly resumed.
