Lincoln Electric’s Excalibur 7018 XMR exceeds AWS requirement for low moisture content by 15 hours. Use it where hydrogen cracking is likely, such as fabrication in structural, pipeline, chemical processing and ship building industries.
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.
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.
These best practices for welded moment connections and column splices in the field require an up-front investment of time and money, but considering how much you’re likely leaving on the table, it’s a small price to pay.
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.
When competing for time-critical jobs, saving even a few minutes with each changeover can make a significant difference and reduce operator exposure to trip and fall hazards. Investing in technology that allows welders to easily change processes with the push of a button at the weld joint can save substantial time, increase weld quality and improve operator safety.
Dan McMillin is now their vice president and corporate controller, and Bob Nelson is vice president of finance for their Americas Welding segment.
Using Quick-Select technology that automatically selects correct polarity, lead outputs and weld parameters, the new XMT 350 FieldPro system with Polarity Reversing from Miller Electric eliminates the need to manually swap leads between welding processes.
ESAB offers the Railtrac B42V rail-mounted tractor with a new weaving unit and the compact Miggytrac B501 battery-operated tractor for flexible and consistent mechanized welding of long and even not-so-long joints and seams.
The rugged XVC-1000e weld camera from Xiris monitors MIG/MAG, TIG, plasma, laser or Stick welding in exceptional detail from up to 100 m away.
Amid Challenges, Majority of Metalformers Predict Little Change in Economic Activity
U.S and Canadian incoming orders expected to remain steady, according to the latest barometer reading from the Precision Metalforming Association.
U.S. Manufacturing Grows in September –– PMI Dips 0.6% to 55.4
The Institute for Supply Management reports that among the six biggest industries, food, beverage & tobacco remains the best-performing sector, with fabricated metal and chemical products growing strongly.
