The American Welding Society launches “Take the Torch” initiative to attract millennials and Gen Z into the welding community.
Weld Systems Integrators’ next generation of capacitive discharge (CD) welders monitors force in real time to ensure consistent-quality results. Throat depth provides room for automation options such as end effectors and fastener feeders.
Taylor-Winfield Technologies’ linear friction welders use solid-state bond welding to join parts of the same or different material in various geometries. Operators can adjust frequency and amplitude during the process.
Georgia-based Standard Resistance Welder products include Models RS1 and RS2. Offering a wide range of standard and optional features, the heavy-duty rocker arm seam welders are built around welded steel bases.
Financing, lease, rental, and recondition-to-new programs are available for all Seedorff ACME rocker arm, pedestal, bench, press-type, seam, butt-and-tee and multispot resistance welders. Automation options available.
The actuator’s dual linear bearings and a digital load cell enable Emerson Industrial Automation’s Branson GMX-20MA ultrasonic spot welder to deliver consistent quality from weld to weld by maintaining energy levels.
Solid state and resistance welding use pressure and/or electric current to fuse dissimilar metals, nonferrous metals, and composites without generating defects, like gas porosity and hot cracking, seen in fusion welding. Think things like bus bars and switches in automotive electric systems and appliances and nuts and fittings on various parts.
Proper cable and consumables selection and tool center point (TCP) control play go a long way toward improving quality and optimizing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Establish a thorough pre-implementation plan and monitor key issues to get the most of your investment.
Esco’s Rental Tools Program puts the full line of MILLHOG I.D., COHOG O.D., and Universal Air Powered Saw and track systems into users’ hands anywhere in the U.S. The tools bevel any degree on all types of alloys in diameters up to 36 inches.
Suitable for outside diameters of 0.2 to 8 inches (5 to 200 mm) and maximum bead widths of 0.4-inch (10 mm), Xiris Automation’s WI-2200 weld inspection system incorporates a Class 2 laser that won’t injure employees.
Flexible and customizable WeldSight software for Olympus’ OmniScan X3 phased array flaw detector saves time and effort. In addition to advanced screening capabilities, the program enables inspectors to quickly optimize multiple tools for analyzing complex geometries.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques’ updated PurgEye 500 Desk weld purge monitor is equipped with PurgeNet. The networking device connects to smart accessories including the drive system for automatic welders and orbital welders and a light accessory for visual warning.
