RE: The tariff classification of a micro-deposit welder from Japan

Dear Mr. Rocklin:

In your letter dated March 15, 1993 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The "Speedy-X" micro-deposit welder, which weighs 46.3 pounds, is specifically designed to repair molds and dies with materials possessing the same properties as the original workpiece. A metallic powder or an electro-ribbon is applied to the workpiece being repaired and is then welded by an electrical discharge from the electrode contained within the unit.

The applicable subheading for the micro-deposit welder will be 8515.80.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electric welding machines and apparatus. The rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
