About IPWL Ltd

Firefly is a semi-automatic welding machine designed and manufactured in the UK by IPWL Ltd.

Firefly
The Firefly, commonly referred to as a ‘welding bug’ or ‘weld head’, is a semi-automatic welding machine designed and manufactured in the UK by IPWL. The Firefly’s unique features gives you a clever welding machine that will work with you in the most challenging environments.

The Firefly is designed to meet the most rigorous standards, and is particularly suited to applications requiring a high level of weld repeatability. The main purpose of the Firefly system is to improve the productivity of the welder by continually producing a consistent weld result. We believe this gives our customers a competitive edge in today’s ever demanding economic climate.

Integrated Weld Data Logger
Firefly includes an integrated arc-welding data logger and monitoring unit. The unit offers a built in solution – a seamless integration with minimal start up times and no external cabling. Mounted to the front of the Firefly control box, the eight-inch touchscreen unit will monitor variables such as arc voltage, arc current, wire feed speed, travel speed, arc time and traverse speed. Data is captured digitally, direct from the weld power source.

Operator's Remote
Firefly is a semi-automated machine – the welder must use their skill to make final adjustments to the weld by operating the remote, once the weld is underway. With constant use throughout a welding shift, Firefly’s operator’s remote is designed for ease of handling and operation. Much attention has been given to the size, weight and physical robustness of the unit. Similar attention has been given to the positioning and colour of the positive click buttons. The remote incorporates leading digital technology to enhance response times.

A hi-visibility display screen enables ease of parameter identification, and quality buttons offer long life and reliability. The remote is connected to Firefly’s control box and controls functions such as travel speed, travel direction and oscillation. Each Firefly remote is inter-changeable with all Firefly control boxes. After extensive field testing, the ease of use design features and physical robustness of the remote will suit most users. However, other options are available.

HMI Programming Laptop
Firefly uses a ruggedized laptop computer as a programming pendant to enable welding parameter set-up in a familiar Windows environment – 50 parameter memories come as standard. Each Firefly HMI is compatible with all Firefly control boxes, so only one HMI is required per worksite.
  • Overview
    The Firefly, commonly referred to as a ‘welding bug’ or ‘weld head’, is a semi-automatic orbital welding machine designed and manufactured in the UK by IPWL.

  • Adaptability
    Firefly is an adaptable system for welding, cutting and bevelling, and is full of clever features to make your life easier.

  • Enhance productivity
    The main purpose of the Firefly system is to enhance the productivity of the welder by continually producing a consistent weld result.

  • Latest technology
    Firefly is a fully digital system using the latest technology. It is not a robot; it is a tool for the skilled welder – Firefly helps the skilled welder do his job more quickly, improving quality and productivity.

  • Integrated data logger
    Firefly comes equipped with an integrated weld data logger and monitoring unit – a built in solution offering seamless integration to fulfil your weld-data information demands.

  • Welding services
    Firefly is available to rent or buy. As well as Firefly equipment, our rental service offers operators, welding crews, weld technicians and a full range of welding equipment to support your project.

Firefly can be used where a high degree of weld repeatability is required, and a flat or flexible guide band can be mounted to the workpiece.
