High strength galvanized steel is an excellent material to help automotive manufacturers build lighter-weight vehicles, but it can present some challenges that make it difficult to weld.
For auto body shops or tractor repair facilities to effectively keep up with the new demands being driven by fuel economy mandates and remain profitable, they must invest in easy to use equipment that is capable of welding both steel and aluminum.
Fabricators must continually explore new technologies that will grow along with their operations to help them stay competitive, profitable, productive, and ahead of the curve so they are prepared for the demands of the future.
The combination of new engineering with improved and reliable current technology for single source TIG, MIG and/or Stick welding and carbon arc gouging can really increase the operating profitability of jobsites and fabrication shops.
By changing welding processes, this oil and gas production equipment manufacturer cut more than 200 man-hours out of each product to thrive during the shale gas boom.
Their "New Year – New Build" Sweepstakes will award new welding equipment and gear to 23 winners over a 90-day period.
The single-operator Big Blue 600 Air Pak from Miller Electric is ideal for welding, carbon arc gouging, auxiliary power, or running an air compressor in rail, mining, construction and fabrication work.
The new TPS/i Robotics welding power source from Fronius is specially tailored to the demands of robot-aided welding, with integrated and fully synchronized system components that enable robots to weld faster with a higher degree of repeatability.
By providing complete control of voltage at the weld joint – without the use of control cords — ArcReach technology from Miller Electric helps welders improve their productivity, quality and safety.
