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…

Safe and demonstrable welding thanks to welding data documentation

data-management

From car bodywork to railway bridges, from industrial production plants to oil and gas pipelines: wherever welding is carried out, manufacturers and users expect flawless and demonstrable quality. Ultimately, stable and flawless weld seams are crucial for the manufactured products to function properly and safely. For most companies, ongoing quality assurance with the help of special monitoring and checking systems is therefore of central importance. In this blog post, you’ll find out about the role that welding data documentation plays…

8 tips to prevent welding spatter

Schweißspritzer

When the sparks start flying, welding spatter on the workpiece is usually not far behind. And once it’s there, it has to be removed – at the expense of both time and money. As prevention is better than cure, we need to do what we can to prevent welding spatter – or at the very least reduce it to a minimum. But how? Every welder has it in their power to help in the fight against spatter, be it by…

How to make savings with contact tips and gas nozzles – four effective measures

Welding systems and robots may create the optimal basic conditions for MIG/MAG welding, but the real action happens front and center on the torch body. Temperatures of up to 15,500 degrees, spatter from liquid metal, and continuous abrasion by the welding wire: the thermal and mechanical forces imposed on wearing parts such as contact tips and gas nozzles are enormous. So, what can be done to delay the inevitable demise of these parts for as long as possible?…
