If the electrode tip of the welding handpiece touches the workpiece, the welding process starts automatically. Melting occurs at the point of contact under an inert gas atmosphere.

In addition to many steels, various titanium and aluminum alloys, copper and tin alloys are suitable for welding, as are various precious metals and alloys. All alloys suitable for laser or TIG welding can also be welded with the PUK U5. Welding wire can be fed or applied as required without any problems.

The PUK technology will inspire you!

  • The intuitive operation
  • Intelligent presettings mean that only 2 operating steps are required. Select metal group and work situation > Welding!
  • Precision handpiece for precision welding
  • Solid quality and the best materials such as stainless steel and Teflon are a prerequisite for precision in manufacturing and reliability in use.
  • The handling of the components: Well thought-out details facilitate handling.

High quality connectors and professional screw and plug-in connections ensure durability and lasting safety in daily use.

Practical and fast: plug-in nozzle and clamping nut for fast, tool-free changing of electrodes

Ergonomic working: Individual adjustment of the working position and comfortable hand rests for low-fatigue work.

Special electrodes without toxic components, with optimized ignition and welding properties

High quality workmanship in every detail.

PUK makes welding simple

The operating concept of the PUK U5 combines the advantages of a modern touch display with the proven operation by means of a rotary control. Intuitive and safe device setting is thus guaranteed at all times.

  • 1. select metal group
  • 2. select welding situation
  • 3. welding!

  • By means of the thin blue bar, the setting range recommended by our engineers is displayed.

  • Informative help windows support intuitive operation.
  • By pressing a button of the display for approx. 2 seconds, a help window is shown in which the underlying function of the buttons is explained.
  • With another short touch on the help window, the display jumps back to the operating menu.

  • Selection of welding parameters by means of a single control dial
  • This means that power and welding time can be adjusted "blindly" to individual requirements.
  • Concentration remains focused on the workpiece.

  • Avoidance of welding faults by interrupting the welding process when too much pressure is applied to the electrode
  • Increase the life of the electrode tip
  • Avoidance of tungsten inclusions on sensitive surfaces or on workpieces and materials that still require further processing
  • Improvement of the overall welding quality due to more uniform work
  • Error prevention in handling: Increased process reliability and more consistent quality for larger quantitiesLearning function: Faster and easier learning of correct welding - especially for beginners

  • Faster to better results - "blind operation" through one-hand operation: The concentration remains on the workpiece!
  • Even more powerful LED illumination in our new premium welding microscopes. More uniform illumination of the working area - more flexible use of the microscope: These microscopes can also be used as full-fledged working microscopes - not only for welding!
  • Setting of the "Power", "Time" parameters and menu navigation with only one control dial
  • Possibility of selection of a basic welding cycle
  • Speed function (PUK U5+ only) - increased energy input into the workpiece for optimized welding performance with highly conductive metals and alloys. (e.g. copper)

Extremely simple touchscreen operation. Now with wipe function!

Other features in the overview

For temporary fixing of metal parts.

  • With this process, two metal parts are joined together at their point of contact by means of resistance welding.
  • The parts can thus be "tacked" together for final joining by means of PUK welding, or to fix them for a soldering process.
  • The fixation welding function is particularly suitable for processing metals with low electrical conductivity, e.g. steels or titanium, etc.

The resistance welding function can be an option for individual solutions, e.g. in connection with a force-dependent triggering of the weld.

  • A corresponding device can be connected via the foot switch connection socket.
  • With this process, two metal parts are joined together at their point of contact by means of resistance welding.
  • In order to address material-specific conditions, a choice can be made between different welding curves.

For difficult workpiece constructions, the use of the foot switch can be an aid to safe working.

  • By pressing the foot switch for 3 seconds, it is activated. This deactivates the automatic function of the PUK.
  • The white symbol at the top right of the display indicates activated foot switch operation.
  • Welding is now triggered by pressing the foot switch.

Sensible design for durability and continuous operation:

  • Actively cooled (U5+ only)
    The PUK U5+ is actively cooled when required, so the devices can be operated continuously without any problems.
  • High-performance handpiece (U5+ only)
    Optimized welding performance, maximum power transmission.
