The INV-1 “BLUE GOOSE” Press Type Spot Welders
This inverter welding head is so revolutionary we gave it a special name, the “Blue Goose.” On top of the low inertia ram is a patented accelerator that gives the “Blue Goose” the best follow-up action in the welding industry. This makes it an ideal machine for cross-wire welding, and other spot and projection welding applications. It creates low impact, high-speed welds with exceptional repeatability and virtually no deflection.
In addition, we stock a complete inventory of replacement parts and in-stock components can be shipped within 24 hours of order receipt. When you buy from Taylor-Winfield, you get sound technical advice, competent service and continued performance backed by single source responsibility.
