Amada Weld Tech’s MM-L300A laser weld monitor improves weld performance by giving operators real-time feedback on production errors such as gaps between parts, missing parts, over-penetration, incorrect focus, and cover gas absence. The unit’s software simplifies setup and analysis.
Contact tips may be tiny, but using the wrong type or replacing them too soon can have a huge impact on productivity. Here’s what to consider to improve results and save money by properly matching tip type to application.
Two certified welders who work for a Midwest custom fabricator that designs and manufactures premium architectural systems and components share their tips for avoiding common mistakes that contribute to weld failure.
With the proper process, oil and gas industries that require components to maintain corrosion or cracking resistance can have peace of mind that elevated service temperatures or multiple repair cycles won’t cause damage.
Heating the base metal adds time and money up front, but can save time and money by minimizing potential for weld failure. Here’s how to determine the best preheating method – convection ovens, induction, open flame, or resistance heating – for your application.
Designed with a unique round storage filter, KEMPER’s SmartFil offers long service life and a winning combo of price and performance. Featuring a 360-degree rotating exhaust hood, the compact system filters more than 99.5 percent of alveolar dust particles.
Magnetic V-Pad clamps from Industrial Magnetics, Inc. use dual pivoting magnetic heads to hold workpieces at up to 180 degrees. Use them for repetitive applications because set-up and positioning are quick and easy.
Does your shop use Lincoln Electric or Miller power sources? If so, Yaskawa Motoman’s universal weldcom interface (UWI) enables welders to easily control any process or parameter including amperage, voltage, and wire feed speed.
Yaskawa America’s ArcWorld 6000 pre-engineered workcells featuring Motoman AR-series arc welding robots come with virtually everything you need to get up and running quickly and safely. Available in one-, two-, or three-robot configurations.
Lincoln Electric’s Lincore 420HC-S metal-cored wire for submerged-arc welding (SAW) may be used where higher hardness is required and on work rolls and backup rolls when water spray causes pitting on tool steel deposits.
