Titanium is becoming more commonly used in many new applications in the aerospace, semiconductor, F1 racing, medical, scientific and nuclear industries that have a demand for high quality welded components. Increasing standards are forcing these sectors to revisit their welding techniques and processes in order to achieve the perfect titanium weld.
In response to these special metals welding markets, West Country Welding Supplies Ltd (Bristol, UK) offers an off-the-shelf welding chamber, built in partnership with German manufacturer Mbraun InertGas-Systeme GmbH (Garching, Germany), that is designed to be the perfect solution for these applications.
This 10 / 10 chamber is the future for welding titanium and specialist materials. Successful titanium welds must be carried out with minimal oxygen in the weld area. This purpose-designed chamber will reach 10 ppm in around 10 minutes, saving gas and money compared with oversized or old leaky chambers.
These complete welding workstations use an ergonomic design that provides great operator comfort while being fully equipped with everything needed, from a shaded sliding eye shield and internal lighting to a fast flow gas purge system and an insulated torch feedthrough. The off-the-shelf system provides an immediate return on investment that is ready to go upon delivery and very easy to use.
With superb German engineering and build quality, these chambers are manufactured from high quality stainless steel with a full epoxy coating to provide the highest build standards. These chambers provide a portable or fixed solution that can be manufactured to meet anyone’s requirements, no matter the shape or size of the components.
West Country provides technical advice and support on custom applications for these welding chambers. From installation and commissioning of the chamber through to complete operator training, they provide the turnkey service a shop needs. Their success and growth selling welding chambers over the past couple years has been remarkable and, together with MBraun, a world leader in glove box technology, they can offer and provide turnkey solutions for all inert gas welding applications.
