Torque Converter Welders
Automatic transmission specialists use welders to join together separated parts or weld on replaced pieces of a Torque Converter. This refers to top and bottom parts of the Converter body and hub replacement procedure. A single gun welder is a good option since the process is fully automated - there’s barely a chance of misplacement during welding. Two gun welders are used by transmission rebuild workshops with a great number of Torque Converters rebuilt daily.

Welding stand is a basic element of the Torque Converter rebuild line. Almost all modern models of welding stands are automated. They are designed and implemented with due account to all nuances which can arise in the process of welding of the two halves of a Torque Converter. Precision provided by modern welders is comparable to that of the original manufacturers. Most popular components for replacement are friction linings, O-rings and seal rings. Hubs, sprags and springs are replaced less often. It is important to restore Torque Converters with precision and accuracy in key tolerances for runout and end-play.
Convenient control of all welding process when restoring Torque Converters is guaranteed with one-touch operator panel. In order to replace an impeller hub transmission specialists use a special tooling kit.
Torque Converter rebuilding is nowadays a kind of service that is provided both by large remanufacturing companies and smaller-scale automatic transmission repair shops. The process is rather easy to comprehend, but to do it properly you will certainly need a torque converter welding stand. In this article, we will consider technical solutions that are used for the top-quality welding of torque converters in repair shops.
A torque converter (TC) is an indispensable part of modern automatic transmissions and CVTs which plays an important role in their operation. In many cases, TCs fail much earlier than the automatic transmission. Frequently, the problem resides in the seal leakages. We will consider this problem in more detail.
In fact, the essence of the repair of any mechanism is the same and includes the following stages: Disassembly, fault detection, repair procedures, and reassembly of the unit. The last step is the performance check. In this article, we will examine the most popular torque converter design solutions and describe peculiarities of their repair on specific examples.
