Weld Planishers - Gantry Roll Planisher


DC Welding Automation and MITUSA engineers design and manufactures the highest quality automated roll planisher machines. Planishing automation allows the operator safe parts loading and hands free weld planishing safety. Standard and custom linear programmable automatic roll weld planisher machines designed to replaced old unsafe manual longitudinal roll planishers.

The roll planishing process planisher equipment is now manufactured for operator safety for easy precision weld part's planishing. Simple planisher types to fully programmable automatic weld roll planisher designed system available to meet specific requirement for your parts.

What is the best way to remove a seam weld crown bead?

The linear roller planishing process uses high pressured hardened steel or stainless steel roller and mandrel tooling that is built specific to your part's precision requirement. The harden roll's pressure smoothly removes the weld appearance without changing the shape of the original part. Planisher rollers using up to 20,000lbs pressure to simultaneously eliminate the weld bead appearance and using cold hardening to improving weld strength once planish process is completed.

Industries that use the metalworking planishing process are metal spinners, aerospace, aeronautics; petro chemical, food processing, home appliances application to jet engines, rockets or anywhere critical precision weld removal and increased weld strength is required. The advanced seam weld joints planishing machine technology by MITUSA and DC Welding define roll weld planisher automation machine designs.

Weld Planishing Process Benefits

Roll planishing process combines smashing or flattening that smooths out the weld crown and root weld bead. This produces a cosmetically uniform weld with a cross section thickness equal to that of the adjacent parent base metal or alloy.

Smoothing out weld bead crown for flattened ID and OD finish on parts of all shapes and sizes. GTAW (TIG), GMAW (Mig/Mag) SAW (Sub Arc) PAW (Plasma) any reasonable low crown weld bead seam weld can be flattened. Stainless, Carbon Steel, Aluminum, Inconel tubes are no problem. Planishing improves fluid flow characteristics as well as improving the appearance and strength of the tube.

Weld strength uniformity is important when weldments undergo further metalworking processing such as bending, stretch and spin forming. Weld roll planishing actually improves the mechanical properties of the welded part making it stronger by pressure cold working the weld's columnar integrity and relieving normal stresses caused by the seam welding.

Planishing Welds Add Strength and Blend Weld Bead Cosmetically Into The Base Metal

Weld Planishers Improve Welding Fabrication Metal Finishing Productivity!

The roll planisher metal finishing process is one of the least appreciated weld bead removal appearance process methods. Unlike the costly sanding, grinding, which are all time consuming and labor intensive processes. Roll weld planishers not only cosmetically remove a weld bead smoothly into the base material quickly and safely.

The process behind the use of a weld planisher is an collaboration of a adjustable planisher's hydraulic roller press. The hardened roller tooling needs to have precision geometry, due to the force of the planishing roll process pushes the weld bead into the base metal as it cold-works the weld into the base material. If the planishing roller and part's geometry are precise, then the weld bead is smashed to the tangent for a seamless weld appearance with added part's strength. The planisher custom tooling roller is moved along the length of the part in a longitudinal motion, rolling the hardened tooling along the weld bead. While the roller works the material on the OD, the hardened mandrel tooling exerts and equal and opposite force to smooth the weld material on the O.D. and ID.
