Metal-Cored Wire features low manganese emissions.

January 21, 2015

With low manganese levels, FabCOR Element 70C6 helps companies conform to strict environmental regulations. When paired with 75/25 argon and carbon dioxide shielding gas mixture, wire offers 2.0 mL of diffusible hydrogen per 100 g of weldment. Operating with 90/10 shielding, gas blend yields ≤ 4.0 mL of hydrogen per 100 g of weldment. Available in diameters of 0.045, 0.052, and 1/16 in., FabCOR Element 70C6 simplifies silicon removal and is suited for single- or- multi-pass welding. Read More

Composite Metal Cored Electrode welds aluminized material.

January 8, 2015

Intended for welding of ferritic stainless steel, particularly on thin section, aluminized material, Select FP 409Ti comes in .045 in. dia and provides stable spray arc over diverse current/voltage settings with minimal spatter and no burn-through on thin material. Titanium acts as stabilizing agent to provide oxidation and corrosion resistance. Furthermore, resistance to sensitization reduces chances of stress corrosion cracking when welding over lubricants, oils, and other hydrocarbons. Read More

MIG Welding Consumables Platform keeps contact tips cooler.

December 2, 2014

Extending consumable parts life, Velocity™ platform features contact tips with shielding gas ports that keep tip 30% cooler. Gas porting in contact tip, coupled with all-copper conductive path with fewer connections, promotes electrical and thermal conductivity, while running temperature of contact tip reduces ability for spatter to stick. Thread-less, drop-in contact tips can be exchanged without tools, and design employs heat-treated, stainless threaded sleeve. Read More

Multi-Process Welding Lathe features PLC-based controls.

November 11, 2014

Capable of sub arc, open arc, and gas-shielded welding using single torch, Multi-Process Horizontal Lathe is suited for users that remanufacture slab caster rolls, shell rolls, and mandrel bars. Onboard second torch is provided for bore welding down to 4 in. ID. With adaptive spindle speed compensation, operators do not need to adjust wire-feed speed or spindle speed to accommodate change in diameter. Machine includes 12 in. color HMI and open-naming convention for part configuration storage. Read More

Flux-Cored Wires enable welding in all positions.

November 10, 2014

Designed for welding low-alloy, high-strength steels such as 4130, Dual Shield II 4130 SR is suited for offshore oil and gas topsides requiring corrosion resistance. Dual Shield II 70-Ni1 H4, designed for use under 75% Ar/25% CO2 gas protection, provides low-temperature toughness in as-welded and stress-relieved conditions. Wire produces diffusible hydrogen levels lower than 4 ml/100 g and resists stress corrosion cracking. Both produce weld bead with almost no ripple and very little spatter. Read More

Arc Welding Robot reduces need for tracks via extended reach.

November 7, 2014

Available in floor-, wall-, or ceiling-mounted configurations, MA3120 has 6 kg payload, 3,121 mm horizontal reach, and ±0.15 mm repeatability. Integrated through-arm cabling eliminates cable interference, and through hole wrist diameter facilitates integration of pull-torches or welding sensors. While welding utilities can be routed through robot base, wire feeder mounts to upper arm. Other features include Yaskawa Motoman DX200 controller and Functional Safety Unit (FSU). Read More
