Reels Quickly Connect to Any Welder

A declutching arbor and non-sparking ratchet assembly prevents damage when reverse winding SWCR Series reels from Hannay.
Power or rewind SWCR Series reels from Hannay Reels are ideal for use with a single conductor electrode cable or grounding lead.

Quieter Diesel Welder/Generators Extend Run Time, Reduce Fuel Use

With a redesigned case that’s 7 in shorter and 80 lb lighter, the Trailblazer 325 Diesel (left) allows a work truck to carry more equipment and heavier payloads. The Bobcat 250 Diesel (right) with versatile AC and DC weld output is also well suited for mobile maintenance trucks. 
The innovative Trailblazer® 325 Diesel and Bobcat™ 250 Diesel from Miller Electric deliver multiprocess welding capabilities and smooth generator power on the jobsite.

Build Your Ultimate MIG Welding Gun

The BTB Platform MIG Gun consolidates three legacy industrial gun lines into a single MIG gun configuration, with options ranging from 200 amps to 600 amps, cable length between 8 ft and 25 ft, and wire sizes from 0.023 in (0.6 mm) to 1/8 in (3.2 mm).
The Best of the Best (BTB) Platform MIG Guns from Bernard can be configured with Centerfire, TOUGH LOCK or Quik Tip consumables.

Digital Controls Improve Submerged Arc Welding Performance

The new SubArc Digital Series of power sources, interface controls and accessories include digital control and communication electronics designed to improve weld performance and simplify the integration of the equipment in more advanced applications, offering the latest in digital control technology combined with the ease of use and reliability of a traditional machine. The SubArc Digital Series offers a number of significant enhancements, including easier setup and operation and an improved flux delivery system that ensures continuous delivery of flux to the arc.
The SubArc Digital Series from Miller Electric makes setup and operation easier and ensures continuous delivery of flux to the arc.

Friction Welding Systems Reduce Cycle Times and Defects

FWS Series Friction Weld Systems use a Direct Drive approach, where one work piece is stationery and the other piece is rotated on a spindle at a constant speed by an electric motor. These systems are designed to precisely control rotational speeds with parameters from 2,000 rpm to 23,000 rpm as well as forging forces of 335 ft-lb to 12,000 ft-lb. Here is a dual-system solution.
Stand-alone vertical or horizontal FWS Series Friction Weld Systems from Coldwater Machine integrate into a work cell or become part of an automated processing line. 

Advances in 3D Metrology and Automation

The IK 5000 QUADRA-CHEK PC software system from Heidenhain quickly measures and determines part profiles within desired tolerance zones by comparing the actual measured part to a three-dimensional model within the PC software, making inspection a breeze on coordinate measuring machines.
Our yearend review of some of the current advances and application capabilities in measurement and inspection technologies.

A New Look at Stainless Steel Machining

Runners are the heart of all hydropower machinery. They are very sophisticated water wheels made of stainless steel that can weigh up to 15 tons and spin at up to 1,000 rpm to generate electric power. For hydrodynamic efficiency and dynamic balance in service, all finished runners must be accurate to 0.010 in with a 32µ finish. 
Canyon Hydro sped up deliveries by two months – without raising machining costs – with a last minute processing switch and a new multipurpose mill that roughs out 4,500 lb of chips in one-third the time of conventional face mills.  

Revolutionary Joint Technology
