ideal welding machine

This flexible German company is specialized in resistance welding and laser welding machines. They have a high level of innovation and are a good reliable partner.

You can find more information here about aftermarket copper spare parts which we are producing.


This is the most replaceable copper part on the welding machines. This is because the electrodes get worn during the welding process. The right combination of hardness, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity is necessary.

If you are looking for electrodes with a longer life time please let us know so that we are able to give you our advice.

Electrode holders

The electrodes will be kept in their place on the machine by the electrode holder. This copper part does not wear so much and can be produced in many softer copper alloy's like CuCrZr or ECu.

To improve the electrical conductivity it's possible to silver plate the connection surfaces for your holders.

Laminated shunts and current cables

These flexible shunts and cables are used in the machine to bring over the welding current to the electrode holders. They do not wear like the electrodes but should also be maintained and if necessary or re-placed.

Welding transformers

The welding transformers are the heart of the machine and can be damaged through pollution or overload. Brouwer Metaal can help you with replacement.
