RAFT Resistive Adaptive Feedback Technology


Update your WT6000 Series Control to Adaptive Technology

Take control of your resistance welding process with the implementation of RAFT™ (Resistive Adaptive Feedback Technology).

RAFT™ removes the nuisance and time consuming tweaking of weld schedules due to minor disturbances faced in manufacturing facilities.

RAFT™ lends a helping hand in the resistance welding manufacturing process by automatically adjusting your constant current program by adaptively changing current and or time as needed to overcome weld disturbances.

RAFT™ will maintain consistency in your welding process and indicate when secondary tooling needs maintenance.

RAFT Brochure
RAFT Welding Process

RAFT also includes process indicators that will give you the confidence that your resistance welding process is in control.

Key Benefits

RAFT will adapt the weld schedule via current and or time to tackle weld disturbances such as:

  Part fit up
  Part thickness variations
 Misaligned electrodes
 Variations in coatings
  Sealers
  Weld force variations
  Shunting
  Machine tooling degradation

RAFT option for the WT6000

The WT6000 offers a new platform of inverter technology designed for high speed data collection, transmission and data analysis. The programming style is consistent with the previous Welding Technology Corp. series controls. The ease of programming lends well to the intuitive style of RAFT™ programming.

WT6000 Top Mount

RAFT set up is easy

1. Create your constant current weld schedule
2. Turn on reference mode
3. Weld
4. Verify the spot weld is acceptable, nugget size and strength
5. Set as reference
6. Turn on RAFT™ mode


RAFT is comprised of two independent software components.

RAFT
 = AdaptQ™ & SoftQ™

AdaptQ ™ is a software algorithm designed to manipulate both current & or time based on resistive feedback  from the weld that is taking place. You decide on the current and time that your process can safely allow for maximum productivity.
