How Submerged Arc Welding Can Improve Productivity

Ideal for demanding applications in pipe, pressure vessel and tank, railcar manufacturing and heavy construction/mining, this process offers great benefits in its simplest form of single wire welding, plus more in twin wire, tandem wire and multi-wire SAW configurations.

How to Get More Weld Strength in Powerboat Propulsion Systems

Nothing pushes the limits of machine performance – or weld strength – like offshore powerboat racing. To meet its demands of higher strength, corrosion resistance, ease of welding and low hot cracking sensitivity, this powerboat drive builder uses an advanced aluminum filler metal that significantly strengthens weld joints after post-weld heat treatment and machining, without affecting the integrity of the base metals.

Welding Abrasion-Resistant Plate: Three Common Challenges and Their Solutions

Here are some tips that make it easier to avoid cracks and prevent lost time and money when welding these incredibly hard plates.

The Importance of Proper Welding Operator Training

To gain more business in the face of a skilled labor shortage, fabrication shops need welding operators that are familiar with a wider variety of welding processes and materials and can take on new jobs to set their shops apart. Proper operator training plays a key role in reaching these goals.

Increasing Aluminum Weld Strength and Quality

Aluminum is popular in many fabrication applications, but welding the material presents challenges of cracking, porosity and burn-through on thinner sections. Here are some critical insights on how to combat these potential problems.
