Eutect's force-regulated wire feeder SWF celebrates its tenth anniversary and is available today as a very refined version.

Eutect says that the SWF was then, in 2008, the first force-regulated wire feeder. It is used mostly in the field of laser soldering. Developed initially as a student research project, the module has been continuously refined and is today in its latest version – with a “third dimension”.

"During the further development, our focus was on weight reduction, improved servicing capability as well as increased flexibility, in particular for robot applications," company CEO Matthias Fehrenbach says.

The entire module has been reduced by almost 300 g. Its new drive rollers and an optimised wire guide now enable simple and fast adaptation to different wire thicknesses. These improvements facilitate easy servicing as key components are now easily accessible. In future, according to Eutect, wire reels can be freely integrated, which is provided by a supply tube through which the wire is guided.

A further optimisation is the module's inclination detection, which can thus be employed for 3D resurfacing welding and can also be installed on a 6-axis robot. "Its use on a robot arm enables new opportunities for us to offer 100% process-oriented solutions,” Fehrenbach added. He noted that this third dimension and the use of the freely integrable wire reel allows for more flexibility and new possibilities in realising complex customer projects.

The control of the SWF has also been expanded. Thanks to a newly developed, compact control unit known as the Ecogerd, even more parameters and interfaces can be activated and regulated via the user interface. The visualisation has also been simplified to enable fast and uncomplicated use of the control system.
