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.
Bernard and Tregaskiss provide semi-automatic and robotic MIG gun and consumable solutions.
They handle exclusive wholesale distribution of air-fuel equipment in the U.S., also with distribution of gas cylinders.
This deal advances their regional growth strategy in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Are you wasting lots of time and money on welds that are larger than they need to be, particularly on thicker materials? Or dealing with inconsistent quality or increased crack sensitivity due to welds with improper dimensions? There are many different ways to design welds that strike the best balance between weld quality and productivity.
Troy Galvin and Michael Maxon join as new territory sales managers.
Though it has increased efficiencies and reduced overall costs in heavy equipment, automotive and general manufacturing, some shops that are good candidates are still reluctant to change to metal-cored wire. Why? Most importantly, what is their risk for not converting?
