NEW and Improved: Ortho Welder II

This new edition of the "All-In-One-Workhorse" is more efficient than ever.

Yates Motloid, a leader in providing high-quality dental lab solutions for over 50 years, has released a new and improved version of the Ortho Welder – aptly named the Ortho Welder II. The Ortho Welder II is referred to as the “All-In-One-Workhorse” because it has multiple uses and applications: an orthodontics welding machine, an electric solderer, and a wire annealer. It is ideal for dental labs, orthodontic labs, production labs, commercial labs, and clinics.

There are a few key features that make this dental appliance—the Ortho Welder II—an improvement over its predecessor.

NEW Product Features:

  • Larger transformer gives approximately 50% more welding power
  • Additional thermal protective overload switch for transformer
  • Ability to use remote leads to anneal or heat treat
  • Ability to combine one jaw with one remote lead
  • Available in a 110V model or a 220V model

Paul Watson – owner of Fox Valley Orthodontic Laboratory in Elgin, IL – speaks in detail about his experiences with the Ortho Welder II:

The extra power makes it much more efficient. With one little tap of the foot pedal, everything has a nice, solid hold. It’s more secure, it’s quicker and it gives me the confidence that, as long as my technique is correct, the hold will be strong  

With the new combination jaw, I no longer have to use wax or putty to hold my work in position. This cuts out a lot of steps and allows me to see exactly where all my materials are without obstruction. After using the Ortho Welder II, I would never go back to using wax or putty for welding.

Also, with remote annealing, I can have the piece on the model exactly where I want it – clip to the wire, press the button, and anneal right where it’s at. Before, you’d have to move the piece during the process, and you would lose precision. With this method, I’m able to give a much more precise fit.

Overall, the Ortho Welder II saves time – and with as much as it gets used in the lab – the cost is negligible.

By improving the product’s usability and versatility, Yates Motloid has given lab technicians and owners a considerable advantage over their competitors, allowing them to create stronger, better-fitting products, in less time.
