Metal-cored wire isn’t new, but there are often misconceptions about applications, cost, performance, strength, and workability compared to solid wire. Read on to learn how you might be missing opportunities to increase welding operation productivity for less cost.
Comprised of three scientifically balanced oxides that promote migration and evaporation rates, Diamond Ground Products’ thorium-free Tri-Mix tungsten electrodes are a cost-effective and safe alternative to Wolfram Industries’ 2% thoriated tungsten electrodes.
Lincoln Electric’s Prism Compact fume-extraction system for welding and cutting applications incorporates the Prism line’s vertical filter technology. Available in indoor and outdoor configurations, the short unit fits efficiently into smaller spaces.
Four Magnum PRO Curve HDE semiautomatic welding guns from Lincoln Electric provide the best of both worlds: They deliver the highest duty cycle in their class and maximize operator comfort with a new ergonomic design.
Lincoln Electric’s Dual Maverick 200/200X is two welders powered by one diesel engine with two outputs, allowing two or more welders to work at the same time. Output remains steady even during arc stops and starts in dual mode.
To improve welding productivity, quality and cost savings, select the type and weight of welding wire packaging that balances out the time and cost for changing over the package with the equipment being used and the rate at which the product is consumed. Here’s how it works.
Selecting the proper filler metals for a given welding application can be difficult and confusing. To better understand what impacts filler metal strength, consider these four common misconceptions, along with guidelines to rectify them.
Resisting change is human nature, but change doesn’t have to be difficult. Qualifying different MIG, pulsed MIG or RMD welding procedures and processes for your jobsite is easier than you think – and a smart investment that can significantly improve productivity and save you money.
ESAB provides Dual Shield Prime Flux-cored wires for impact toughness, better performance, OK AristoRod 38 Zn for solid MIG wire for galvanized steels, and longer-lasting Cutmaster Black Series plasma consumables.
Filler metal used in welding pressure vessels must provide the appropriate impact toughness to meet strict design temperature requirements. Let’s examine the challenges of finding filler metal combinations, along with obtaining necessary documentation or testing to support welding procedures that can meet the mechanical properties of A516 Gr 70 plate.
Advanced welding technologies from Miller Electric provide great process flexibility, reduce welder training time, minimize spatter and rework and improve weld quality for manufacturing, fabrication and construction applications.
Filler metals from Hobart Brothers can increase productivity, improve quality and reduce costs in manufacturing, construction and fabrication operations.
U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders Dip Slightly From June to July
Although a wide variety of sectors were positive in July –– including automotive and medical equipment –– AMT reports the 2020 orders to date of $2 billion is about a quarter down year over year.
How Does Your Company’s Compensation Package Stack Up?
FMA has released a report that details salaries and benefits for practically every position in a fabricating or manufacturing company, from CEO to janitor and everything in between. The survey results also provide insight into several HR policies and procedures.
