New Metal-Cored Wire Improves Quality and Productivity, Reduces Clean Up
Press release date: April 17, 2012
The FabCOR Edge MC wire features excellent wetting characteristics that help welding operators create smooth, flat weld beads with uniform fusion, along with a smooth, stable arc that makes it easy to control. To help mitigate the risk of cracking and associated rework, the wire produces low hydrogen weld deposits - between 2.84 and 2.91 ml per 100 g of weldment, depending on the shielding gas mixture. Hobart Brothers recommends a shielding gas mixture of 75 - 95 percent argon with a balance of CO2. With this range of shielding gas mixture, the wire also provides a tensile strength between 85,000 and 90,000 psi.
Hobart Brothers offers the FabCOR Edge MC wire in .045-, .052- and 1/16-inch diameters on 33 pound spools and in the company's exclusive 750 pound X-Pak.
