Filter by Process Zone:
With a CE model and 20 additional languages, Lincoln Electric’s PIPEFAB welding system can be used anywhere in the world. Software enhancements including HyperFill mode expand utility and usability for operators and shop managers tracking overall performance.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT’s blue-tipped MultiStrike tungsten electrodes eliminate the health risk related to radiotoxic thoriated tungsten electrodes without compromising welding performance. They also last longer and offer better arc-striking characteristics.
Manufacturers that use EWM AG’s ewm Xnet digital data management software are able to meet product liability requirements with minimal effort. The program works with virtually any brand of power source and welding machine.
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.
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.
With loading capacity up to 20,000 pounds, Bluco’s high-tolerance 3D welding tables are hardened to protect against spatter buildup, provide a corrosion-resistant surface, and come with a lifetime warranty.
The Model 317 from Arc Machines features the first orbital welding controller that manages data. The system improves performance and increases production efficiency by gathering and presenting information that enables pipe fabricators to better control the weld.
ADDere’s laser hybrid wire welding system achieves single-pass welding for thick plate fabrication – on material up to 25 mm. But speed is far from compromised at 60 inches per minute.
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.
