Dengensha America, Bedford, OH, has developed its high-force, lightweight, reduction-gear X-Gun that proves extremely effective for resistance-spot welding of high-strength steels (HSS), according to company officials. With its new high-torque reduction gear, it can achieve an electrode-force range of 4.8 to 7 kN.

The new, proprietary lightweight design–total weight is 90 to 97 kg–features an aluminum gun arm. This same proprietary design enables the X-Gun to operate seamlessly with Dengensha’s newly developed heavy-duty lightweight MFDC transformer. Use the X-Gun with robots from Fanuc, Nachi, Yaskawa, Kawasaki, Kuka and ABB.
