CAD 101

The Canaweld CAD 101 stud welding system offers a full 3/8” (M10) welding capacity and has the industry’s best capacitance-to-weight ratio. Because of the CAD 101’s compact design, it is suitable for benchtop or automated applications with the Canaweld auto feed welding head, and can be used with any of Canaweld’s hand guns. The CAD 101 is equipped with a microcontroller which will keep this model continually up to date. It is equipped with a 15-pin sub miniature interface allowing for remote triggering, ready signals, and reload circuitry among others for automation. The CAD 101 is sold as a stand-alone power supply or as a complete welding system including gun, two ground cables, and collets and changing tools.
