As the need for specialty steel pipe grows, higher steel grades and bigger wall thicknesses are introducing new challenges to pipe welding and fabrication shops. Here are some of the latest advances in welding equipment and fabrication tools that can help these shops gain and maintain a competitive advantage.
The K3127-1 Wireless Pedal from Lincoln Electric reduces clutter and improves workplace safety by eliminating cords that can lead to tripping hazards in the shop environment.
Ideal for vocational schools or fab shops, the LiveArc™ Welding Performance Management System from Miller Electric recruits, screens, trains and manages welding trainee performance via a live welding arc by using advanced motion-tracking technology for critical feedback to improve welding skills and provide better, faster, more cost-effective results than traditional training methods.
