  • So, what is it? STRW?

    Wondering what it is. In my local paper a body shop has a big news story about adding a new "Squeeze-type resistance welder (STRW). The owners the "STRW recognizes the tensil strength and the current needed to weld each metal it is used on". Sounds like the best invention since the pocket in the shirt.

    They are talking about all of the different metal types used by auto manufactures and that this machine will do everything. I can see in the photo that the tag on the side of the machine is PR-2000 and now I see it also says spot welding system. I guess that must be what is used for. Thought it was something other than spot. Any information on this would be appreciated as I'm always ready to learn something new.

      Here's the link. Decide for yourself.

      Looks like a new inverter version of a spot welder.
