A lightweight and compact weld cleaner for precision cleaning following welding.

Cougartron

The Challenge

GX were asked to design an attractive rugged unit taking advantage of modern components and digital design to provide market-leading performance in the field of Stainless Steel Weld-cleaning, Polishing, and Marking.   

The Solution

The GX product development team researched the best current and voltage levels which would optimise the performance in each of the required operational modes.  A circuit was then prototyped which demonstrated that using a digital microprocessor to precisely control these parameters would provide real-world performance of unmatched speed and consistency.  The prototype was developed into a design suitable for production.  The electronic design achieves very high efficiency levels with the result that the board runs cool without requiring heatsinks, resulting in a compact and reliable design.

The Result

Since they were launched the Cougartron Units have quickly established their dominance in the market by outperforming the competition in the vital areas of speed and consistency of results, combined with a compact enclosure of clean and modern appearance.
