This 700 watt 40 kHz top-of-the-line Millennium DPC Dukane press system was built in 2002 and is in very good condition. It has been completely checked out, repairs completed and all functions verified. The Millennium DPC was the direct predecessor of the DPC IV+ which came out a few years later.
This Millennium DPC model can weld by time, collapse distance, absolute distance, energy, peak power, or ground detect. It can weld in dual pressure mode or use a second pressure for hold. and has a hydraulic speed control that can produce more consistent results in many applications. It uses a 1 micron optical linear encoder and has a RISC processor sample rate of 1 millisecond. The generator has line/load regulation so programmed generator amplitude is what you get. The flow-through cooling system has all components that generate heat mounted on heat sinks that protrude into a cooling tunnel with a thermostatically-operated cooling fan that prevents plant air from coming into contact with circuit board components and minimizes heat-blanket effect that can shorten component life. The press utilizes aluminum castings plus a thick-wall drawn-over-mandrel hard-chromed steel column for high rigidity. The nickel-plated steel fixture mounting plate is easily removable for drilling of additional mounting hole patterns, replacement or resurfacing/re-plating. Press also includes a coalescing air filter and a standard North-American quick disconnect air bayonet. The DPCs could be networked using built-in ARCnet ports. All data including graphing data is available at the serial port. Safety switches are installed in the base. Basic press and generator status outputs are available at the I/O connector. The DPC is user-programmable to monitor and/or alarm in excess of 24 different process monitoring parameters as either bad or suspect part limits, and can weld with both primary and secondary control parameters. Can be connected to a Sherwood monitor for parameter display. This Millennium DPC can latch on bad part signal requiring operator action to clear the alarm condition and store parameters for 18 setups in its non-volatile user memory. Generator parameters are accessible through program menu and password protection can be enabled.
Factory parts and repair is still available for this machine at Dukane’s major facilities world-wide.
System includes a 700 Watt 40 kHz Dukane Millennium DPC with Basic I/O, Press Control, Energy and Distance modules installed. Stable third generation software version.
Used Reconditioned Dukane press (assembly stand) with 100 mm stroke air cylinder, hydraulic speed control, cast aluminum and steel construction, 1 micron optical linear encoder, all interconnect cabling and press cable transition box. Plated steel fixture plate has some black stains on it that we were unable to remove even with automotive wheel cleaner. The plate is smooth and ready to mount your fixture.
Used 700 watt Dukane Transducer.
New Tributek BT401937 Aluminum Booster (interchangeable with Dukane and most Branson 40 kHz) with 8mm output thread and one-year warranty (specify gain ratio).
Used 120V power cord with 15 A North American (‘.’) plug.
Runs on 50/60 cycle 100-130VAC single phase, 6 bar (90 psi) clean, dry compressed air. PDF Manual (English) for DPC IV+ provided, which describes some features not found on this version machine and front panel button arrangement is somewhat different.
Steel horn shown mounted in the machine in the photo is not included.
The new list price on this item as equipped in 2002 was approximately US$21,000.
