  • Pneumatic weld heads and pincers are now also available in addition to the proven servomotorised versions which can be combined with various motor and welding controls
  • The AWS3 with its bus interface is easy to integrate into machines and existing systems
  • Integrated system including MG3 functionality: easy programming & easy integration
  • Full AWS3 functionality now available for pneumatic weld heads


The Active Welding System 3 is a complete system to control, to monitor and to direct the welding process consistently and reliably. Automatic calculation and monitoring of critical values, programming of weld power and weld force profiles as well as the static and dynamic process monitoring are critical elements to achieve optimum welds.

It is available as pneumatic or servomotorised version in a basic or advanced configuration and includes a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 main components, which are an operating panel, a welding control, a motor control, and a weld head or a weld pincer.

Another AWS3 advantage is the option to capture data on board or on a USB stick for storing parameters, system confi guration, data logging, screenshots and more.

Benefits of the AWS3:

  • Cost effective, no separate monitor, no WKA adaptor and SSB interface required , only one connection for field bus required
  • Remote service capabilities
  • User-friendly operating panel with single knob push/turn operation or touch screen

The Active Welding System 3 (AWS3) is a fully integrated resistance spot welding solution providing process control, monitoring and quality analysis all in one, and may be used alone as a benchtop system or easily integrates into a production line.
