What You Must Know About the Wire Feeder: Unsung Hero of the Welding World

Bob BitzkyESAB Welding & Cutting Products“Shops that work with welding procedures can program the tolerances specified by each procedure, so the welder cannot exceed the specified range. This is very useful in shops where multiple welders might work on the same job. This also simplifies the job of quality assurance.”(Click on photo to enlarge it)
Modern wire feeders remove the guesswork that leads to inconsistent welding results. They can simplify the welder’s job and improve productivity. If it has been some time since you last upgraded your welding equipment, Bob Bitzky of ESAB recommends that you examine these five areas of advancements before purchasing your next wire feeder.

No Turning Back: Pipe Welding System Kicks It Up a Notch

Because RMD provides smooth metal transfer, it can easily bridge gaps of up to 3/16 in., as well as compensate for a high-low misalignment between pipe sections.
Using the PipeworxTM Welding System from Miller Electric, Shinn Mechanical has increased its pipe fabrication quality and productivity with flatter bead profiles, good sidewall tie-in for 30 percent less grinding, and superior weld puddle control – with no wire rejects in over a year.
