PRODUCTIVE WELDING TO THE POWER OF TWO
KempArc Pulse TCS
DUAL-WIRE TANDEM WELDING SYSTEM FOR
MECHANIZED MIG/MAG WELDING
Replacing single-wire welding with dual-wire tandem welding is an efficient way to increase welding speed and productivity, and also
reduce costs. Suiting a wide range of welding applications from heavy duty welding to thin sheet fabrication, KempArc Pulse
TCS (Tandem Control System) is able to increase productivity between 40 and 80% over single-wire process in a reliable way. The
intelligent TCS software solutions provide easy system setup and automatic arc regulation, achieving significant welding speed
increase and consistent welding quality. As the arcs are actively monitored and controlled separately by the TCS software, it is possible
to precisely adjust them independently from each other. The trail arc continuously monitors the lead arc and adjusts itself accordingly,
resulting in several performance benefits.
KempArc Pulse TCS can be delivered with a welding torch option of your choice, either normal or push-pull model specially designed
for tandem MIG/MAG welding. For monitoring welding parameters from a distance and freedom to position the power sources in a
space-efficient way, you can either use the KF 62 remote control pendant, or KempArc Browser, an optional software application that
offers a web interface to KempArc equipment.

BENEFITS
EASY SETUP SAVES TIME AND MONEY
One of the great benefits of the TCS technology is that it makes the KempArc
Pulse TCS more tolerant of welding parameter variations compared to traditional
tandem welding processes. This adds up to significantly shorter setup times of
the equipment, both in the initial setup phase and when the welding application
changes. With KempArc Pulse TCS, the change from one mechanization
application to another is fast and flexible.
WISE APPLICATION SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY
Wise software products are available to further enhance KempArc Pulse TCS
performance. They increase welding productivity and quality by automating
welding power and arc length control. Further Wise products are available for
root pass welding and thin sheet applications.
ACCESS YOUR KEMPARC SYSTEM THROUGH THE WEB
KempArc Browser is an optional software application that offers a web interface
for selected robot brands or computer use. It is an easy way to make changes to
the welding parameter values from a distance, without moving between the
welding power source and the mechanization application. When used with a
computer, KempArc Browser allows you to establish a connection through to the
mechanization application located elsewhere - whether it be in the same building
or other side of the globe.
