Abstract

The use of parallel beams as an adjustment mechanism for a weld tip reduces the suspended weight of the tip while permitting accurate adjustment of such tip. Weld tip 10 is mounted on parallel beam 12 which is deflected up and down to make the weld. Beam 12 is suspended from parallel beams 14 and 16. Beams 14 and 16 are arranged at right angles to one another and are provided with adjustment knobs 18 and 20 to adjust the weld tip's position. This arrangement cuts the suspended weight of the weld tip so as to enable faster response time. The adjustment beams 14 and 16 permit the weld tip to move only in a direction parallel to the axial motion of the adjustment knob to provide adjustment accuracy.
