TIG Welding Made Easy—So What’s the Secret?

WIG-Kaltdrahtschweißen

With a steady hand, the welder feeds the filler metal into the weld pool. Centimeter by centimeter. Meter by meter. Always with the same even motion, creating a wonderfully neat weld. We’re talking, of course, about TIG welding, the most challenging of all welding processes, requiring the utmost concentration and dexterity. To achieve a professional finish takes considerable expertise, years of practice, and a lot of skill. That is, until now. Because TIG welding just got much easier. Read on…

Risk-free welding: why welding fume extraction is so important

Schweißrauchabsaugung

It makes its way through the mouth and nose and into the smallest branches of the lungs – insidiously entering the body. “It” is welding fume. If you don’t use adequate protection, it spreads across the entire workshop and you breathe in the particles even when you’re not welding. So that’s the bad news. The good news is that targeted protective measures – first and foremost effective welding fume extraction – can significantly reduce exposure to welding fume. But what…

What does a welding app developer actually do?

App-Entwickler

The first steps are often the trickiest: Theresa concentrates on guiding the welding torch, which emits a glittering spray arc. It smokes a little, spatter flies off and Theresa draws a fillet weld in a rectangular steel plate. Not in her training workshop, but “virtually” in her own home on her tablet. Apps have long been a fixture in welding – not only when it comes to conveniently controlling a welding system, but also when learning the welding trade. But…

Welding and sustainability: how do we combine the two?

Nachhaltigkeit

Acting sustainably and taking a conscientious approach to the use of resources and energy is becoming increasingly important in the manufacturing sector – not just in view of new energy laws and eco-design directives but also in view of cost effectiveness and companies’ environmental footprint. Given that welding technology is a central component of many production processes, we are seeing this trend becoming established here too. But what kind of factors do we need to consider? What are the important criteria…

COBOT – when manual welding just isn´t enough

Cobot

Guidelines as far as the eye can see. Formula 1 calls them regulations; in welding technology they’re standards and specifications. And as in motor racing, when it comes to quality and safety the demands placed on modern-day welding are very high. Welds that can be reproduced at any time and seamless weld data documentation are no longer rare, but rather state of the art. If welding takes place manually, it is often impossible to satisfy these requirements. The solution is…
