CR-14E Heavy Idler Welder

WTC machinery is proud to introduce the only idler welder of its kind in the world. The enormous CR14E is designed to handle idlers larger than seven feet in diameter (2.1m) and as heavy as seven tons (6.350 kg). For years, operators of large excavators have faced a choice between hand rebuilding and expensive replacements for worn idlers and drive tumblers. now, however, the gigantic CR14E takes this process to an unprecedented new level: it allows operators to quickly, easily, and accurately rebuild the rolling stock for large track machines.

East Flange Welding

Like the CR10, the CR14E incorporates two high amperage weld heads, each with its own power source. These assure high deposition rates with both circumferential (stringer) and oscillate (cross) welding methods. It also features a standard power yoke that tilts up to 45 degrees in both directions, to facilitate flange welding.

Spacious Work Platform

The CR14E's roomy platform provides a safe, comfortable working space, and swings out of the way when not in use. The system includes the gear to clamp, position and drive the idler, to feed and power two welding heads and to deliver shielding flux. The simple, straightforward controls guarantee easy operation.
