PUSHING BOUNDARIES. UPHOLDING TRADITION.
Taylor-Winfield’s new Eclipse X1 is the most technologically advanced laser welder for metals finishing and galvanizing lines to date, eclipsing all other current systems on the international market. Made in the USA, the Eclipse X1 joins steel grades from LCS through AHSS and UHSS, as well as other metals such as aluminum and copper. Our laser welding system overcomes variation in strip shape and presentation and offers real-time feedback to ensure the highest weld quality.
Taylor-Winfield has a long and substantial history of providing the highest quality coil joining welding machines to the metals processing industry. Our new Eclipse X1 solid-state fiber laser welder is no exception. The development of this machine evolved from our vast experience manufacturing coil joining welders and the shortcomings we have seen from laser welding machines on the current market. After collaborating with the world’s top laser welding experts on its technical design, the Eclipse X1 is the most modern fiber laser welding system for coil joining applications.

Flash-Butt Welding is an ultra-fast joining process with fusion occurring over the entire weld area simultaneously. It is the only resistance welding technique in which surface scale has little or no effect on the weld quality and consistency — a major reason for its use in pickling lines. After trimming, flash-butt welds are as thin as the strip itself and pass readily through subsequent reduction and forming equipment. In most cases, the welds lose their identity and continue on into the consumer product. Flash-Butt Welders predominate in pickle lines, but are also used in heavy-gauge Coil Preparation, Shot Blasting, Side Trimming and Slitting Lines, and Welded Tube and Pipe Mills. Combination Flash-Butt Welders, appropriately named because they have a built-in, draw-cut weld trimmer which, in one stroke, removes the excess metal extruded to the surfaces of the strip during the upsetting (forging) portion of the welding cycle. A transfer mechanism successively moves the joint to the trimming station and other optional work stations, which include an edge punching or notching station and/or induction post-heating system. The latter minimizes costly strip breakage by tempering the heat-affected zone in alloy steels susceptible to treatment.
Weld equals parent metal thickness
|Coil Width||52″ / 1320mm||100″ / 2540mm|
|Coil Thickness||.046″ / 1mm||.375″ / 9.5mm|
The most popular types of fusion (Arc) welding processes are:
GTAW– Weld near parent metal thickness
GMAW– Weld near parent metal thickness after inline trimming
|Coil Width||24″ 610mm||84″ 2135mm|
|Coil Thickness||0.45mm (0.018”)||25mm (1.0”)|
Many of today’s “automotive grade” Advanced and Ultra High Strength Steels (AHSS and UHSS) including Dual Phase, TRIP, high boron and other complex phase steels require post-weld induction annealing to temper the weld interface and restore ductility for subsequent processing in the production line.
