Examples from practice

 

Here are some applications that are possible with the M280.
There are presets for steel / stainless steel, copper / brass and aluminum alloys. Components can be easily joined and original welds replicated.

On generally weldable aluminum alloys, welding wire can be applied by means of high-frequency overlay of the welding impulses.
Of course, we also have the right welding wires for you in stock. Our range includes different stainless steel wires as well as aluminum and titanium wires, which are commonly used in model making.

  • Welding is then only triggered when you press the foot switch.

                

Select your basic settings

Settings menu just a keystroke away

  • To set the gas flow rate, the gas valve can be opened.
  • To control the eye protection, this can be activated in intervals.
  • Activate the optionally available absorber when needed.
  • The beep that sounds prior to welding process can be activated or deactivated here.
  • Select your preferred language.

At home in the model making workshop

Meaningful construction for long service life and continuous operation:

  • Passively cooled
    The M280 does not need a ventilator or ventilation slots. The passive cooling system generates no disruptive noises and is very energy-efficient.

 

  • Dust-tight housing
    The M280 features a closed, tight housing.

    Thus none of the metal or polishing dusts generated in the workshop penetrate the device. Damage or device errors caused by unavoidable deposits are avoided.

Accessories and special equipment

Additional practical system components and accessories such as different eye-protection systems, welding smoke absorber, welding wires and much more are available to meet your individual needs. Visit our accessories page.

After my vocational training I have learned one more enriching technique besides the typical craftmanship – using a PUK welder.
It makes my daily work much easier and I really enjoy working with it every time because it offers completely new opportunities, e.g. when working close to sensitive stones. The machine provides a special default for building up worn settings or for reattaching a broken ear stud without having to solder. Furthermore, I can facilely close pores and/or apply welding wire. The PUK's operation is very simple and it enables me to easily work on jewellery in a lot of different manners.

We have to carry out a broad variety of works in our goldsmith’s workshop of the abbey. From filigree engagement rings made from platinum to rather big sacral utensils made from silver or tombac. That’s why our entire team benefits from the PUK04 and its versatile fields of application. It is extremely helpful for us for goldsmith’s productions, repairs or for the manufacture of new decorations for churches.

Our PUK welder has become an integral part of our workshop, there is no repair challenge that we cannot face with confidence.

 

The PUK welder allows for small scale precision work, focussing heat in specific areas, allowing to weld close to gemstones and pearls. The concentrated generation of heat enables us to hold the pieces by hand whilst welding, thus there is no need for binding wire or the complex positioning of the pieces whilst soldering. We are able to work accurately and efficiently, avoiding time-consuming manufacturing and repair processes. We even use the PUK welder for our pre-positioning of claws before soldering on complex pieces occasionally.

 

The small scale and snazzy appearance of the welder blends into our workshop with ease.

 

It is however, worth mentioning that using the PUK welder is a skill that has to be learnt, you have to spend time becoming accustomed to using the machine, in order to use it to its maximum capacity.

 

Practice makes perfect.

I consider this micro welding machine to be one of my best tool investments.

I have purchased a PUK five years ago to expand my TIG welding to micro level, and never regret for that. Reliability, super easy to start, fast learning curve and lots of hidden capabilities for custom pulse programming - that's exactly what I was looking for. Besides, I would add reasonable argon consumption and ability for micro spot-welding. Maintenance is minimal: just re-fill the argon bottle and have your tungsten clean and sharp.  

 

For readers in North America: Robert from Lampert Tools USA in Chicago provides unbelievable help with order, shipment and delivery, and after I got my machine he gave me free one-day course for micro welding basics. Further customer support and getting consumables is fast, friendly and professional. I consider this micro welding machine to be one of my best tool investments.

I can hardly imagine a work process without the PUK anymore.

There’s really not one day going by in the workshop without the PUK. How quickly this device has made itself indispensable was astonishing - I can hardly imagine a work process without it anymore.

 

Jointing my kinetic works made of stainless steel has particularly become child’s play with the PUK and opened completely new ways of fabrication. No matter if it’s tiniest mechanical elements, sheet metal constructions with a thickness of only 0.3 millimeters or big room sized works, I apply the PUK everywhere and it gets the job done reliably and with a high standard. 

 

The PUK - a tool that I’ve grown fond of and that I want to warmly recommend to all colleagues.

I include the PUK in the design process. Yes, it shapes my design to a certain degree.

For me the PUK has become an inherent part not only in the workshop and for solving problems, I include it in the design process. Yes, it shapes my design to a certain degree. 

 

From the failed attempt to hide welding spots in order to achieve invisible connections emerged the subversive intention to handle the connection spots as obviously as possible. A design idea came into existence that turns the welding spots into my main design feature and orchestrates them like little diamonds. I see that precision technology like Lampert’s spot welding device can - aside from the regular range of applications - produce a high aesthetic value. I want my jewelry to reflect that.

 

The PUK offers clean connections, precise working, new possibilities. It doesn’t just simplify, it paves new ways for jewelry design.

My expectations for the PUK U5+ were very high and were met all along the line.

My expectations for the PUK U5+ were very high and were met all along the line. Working with the PUK U5+ is very simple and uncomplicated.

 

An artist carefully compiles his tools because he uses them to express his thoughts and ideas through his hands. The high expectations of yourself must also be placed on the tools. That is why I only work with professional tools and machines.

For the production of my kinetic solar sculptures I prefer to use round steel rods up to 4 mm and sheets up to 1 mm thick. In the past years I have tried many techniques to optimally combine these materials. I have already used some processes, such as TIG welding, brazing with hydrogen, spot welding or soft soldering. None of these connection techniques met my high standards.

One day I became aware of the PUK U5+ welding system from Lampert, which I had never seen before. The first-class technical support from the Lampert company was able to advise me "on point" what the possibilities of the PUK U5+ are.

My expectations for the PUK U5+ were very high. But these were met all along the line. Working with the PUK U5+ is very simple and uncomplicated. It feels like holding a thick pencil in your hand, easy to handle, safe and accurate.

I usually only rave about Swiss made machines. But I with pleasure took the PUK U5+ from Lampert, made in Germany, in my train of machines.
