The Latest Updates in Technology
For more than a decade, we at Fabricating & Metalworking Online have carried stories on the latest machines and equipment to hit the market. Take a look at our latest updates, go back in our archives to see what we’ve written about in the past.
Filter by Process Zone:
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.
The industry’s first IP67-rated collaborative robot, Yaskawa Motoman’s HC20XP is particularly well-suited for use in damp and splash-prone environments such as food processing. Two speeds optimize cycle time based on risk assessment and process requirements.
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.
The HighLight FL4000CSM-ARM fiber laser from Coherent achieves advanced, more stable welding results with high thermal conductivity metals. Its dual beam output creates high laser intensity, so material doesn’t heat up.
Thermal Dynamics Automation’s new QuickPierce function speeds the piercing time on 400-amp cutting systems. Their cost calculator demonstrates long-range savings you can realize, thanks to improvements that extend the life of 400-amp consumables.
ESAB’s Weldcloud Notes for generating and managing PQR, WPS and WPQ helps QC personnel and welding engineers monitor the many facets of the welding project – including compliance. It’s also an efficient online tool to track individual welder performance.
Pemamek’s PEMA FF station safely handles bulky tower sections and, depending on part size, you might not need a crane – and its skilled operator – for these challenging applications. It’s also equipped to accommodate diverse flange designs.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT developed PurgEye Nano as an entry level, plug-and-play monitor for oxygen level requirements as low as 10ppm. It gives the welders exact oxygen readings inside the pipe so they know when to begin.
Pemamek’s PEMA nozzle welding solution eliminates heavy welding’s drudgery and inaccuracy. Built-in lasers scan the geometry of each layer, which the robot’s control software uses to automatically generate the ideal path for the next pass.
Unlike water-based materials that leak or slip from position, HFT’s weld purge film doesn’t contain water but is water-soluble. After being used to produce quality welds on tubes and pipes, the film dissolves and washes away.
Intelligent occupational safety: That’s what Fronius offers in the Vizor Connect. Communicating with the power source via wireless Bluetooth communications technology, the helmet’s visor darkens as soon as the welder turns on the torch.
Weld with any stick electrode type wherever the work takes you with ESAB’s lightweight and reliable Miniarc Rogue ES 180i TIG inverter. A stable arc down to 10 amps provides the control welders need on thin metal or delicate components.
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.
