Shielding

Trailing Shields protect against bad welds.

Argweld® Trailing Shields cover area behind torch, preventing unwanted chemical reactions and helping to cool weld pool. They fit almost any radius of pipe or tube, internal and external, so that torch can be used normally to trace around circumference. All are made from extruded alloy casing with heat-resistant, low friction silicon skirts to fit either side of weld. Adjustable ring holds torch...

Welding Station offers pre-fabrication of tube and pipe.

TIGER Welding Station allows single operator to handle 6 m lengths of tube or pipe during welding operation. Tube/pipe clamp, located on Easi-Glide X-Y slide, rotates to allow 45° and 90° elbows to be welded to tube lengths. It also removes any ovality from tube for perfect joint fit-up. Head stock uses internal purging and clamping mechanism, which allows tube to be welded to fittings or...

How to Maintain Joint Integrity When Converting from Metal to Plastic

Discussing how the joint integrity of an assembly can be maintained while converting from metal inserts to plastic, this paper points that tensile strength, rotational torque, and pull-through strength are the typical performance requirements of an assembly. It lists the factors which affect the insert performance like insert type, design, plastic specifications, and installation process, and briefly details the different styles of inserts which are designed to accommodate various performance requirements and installation methods. Also explained in the paper is about the hole designing in different inserts, along with the figure illustrating the included taper angle in both straight hole and tapered hole. The paper concludes that in order to prevent jack-out affect in the assembly the hole in the mating component must be larger than the outside diameter of the assembly screw but smaller than the face diameter of the insert.
