Cylinder-mounting Adapter

Shank, Item No. 195-7063

Clamp, Item No. 194-2040, not included

The Equatip dual tip holder is a smaller version of the Equa-Press holder. It is more compact, and is more economical for those applications where it will work equally well. An even smaller device, the Equatip adapter (not water-cooled) is shown in box below.

Using the Equatip holder, both tips contact the work squarely, because tip axes remain parallel to direction of force (unlike the Teeter-Tip adapters). An internal roller equalizes current and pressure between the two electrodes, and will compensate for work height variations up to 1/16 inch.


The holders are orderd with either 1 or 1-1/2 inch spacing between barrels, and with tip sockets to accept either male Tuffcap caps (5/8 inch dia.) or straight No. 4 RW electrodes. (Bent tips are not recommended.) The distance between welds can be varied by rotating offset-nose tips in the barrels. On 1 inch spaced barrels, specialized spacing is available between 0.875 and 1.4 inches, and on 1-1/2 inch spaced barrels, specialized spacing between 1.25 and 2.125 inches is available.

Equatip holders can be supplied with straight shanks for arm mounting, a tapered adapter shank for holder mounting,or a cylinder adapter shank to be clamped to a cylinder rod.

For light-duty welding- EQUATIP Adapter

The Equatip dual tip adapter works like the Equatip holder, but it is not water-cooled and is meant for less demanding jobs. It costs less, and is a little smaller, barrels being 5/8 inch apart. Its straight tips are Tuffcap caps, 1/2 inch in diameter.
