Welder and Influencer Laela Holden: “I’m Not Going to Be Held Back by Gender”

Figures from the US reveal that women represent just 5% of the entire welding sector workforce. This makes it all the more interesting to hear what they have to say. What is it about welding that inspires them? What is it like working in a male-dominated industry, and what does the future hold? Welder, social media influencer, and partner of Fronius USA, Laela Holden, answers these questions and also explains why there was a 20-year gap between her first and…

What exactly is … gas shielded arc welding?

iWave

Gas is invisible, sometimes odourless, sometimes not, but always explosive and dangerous. Isn’t it? Think again! Many gases are in fact quite stable and safe. In the world of welding they have even come to be vitally important. Welding processes such as MIG/MAG, TIG and plasma have come to depend on these so-called shielding gases to produce a stable and flawless weld just like we depend on the air we breathe. Which is why we speak of gas shielded arc…

From TIG Welding System to Multiprocess Welding System: The Development of the New iWave Series in 10 Steps

Tried and tested countless times, with proven handling and outstanding weld seam quality: So why even bother making further improvements to the TIG welding system? Our iWave series proves that it was absolutely worth the effort: Its multiprocess welding systems are suitable for both TIG and MIG/MAG welding, 100% prepared for Industry 4.0, and offer significantly optimized welding processes. But how did the initial concepts for a new TIG welding system become a market-ready multiprocess system?…

Cleaning stainless steel welds: Three tried-and-tested methods compared

Why should you clean stainless steel welds thoroughly after TIG welding? There are two compelling reasons for this. Firstly, it just looks better. And secondly – and this is the real clincher – properly cleaning welds prevents corrosion, i.e., the long-term degradation of the stainless steel. So, the only question that remains is how best to remove annealing colors from TIG welds.…

What does an electric arc technician do?

It’s like playing with fire: arc plasma at up to 20,000 degrees, dramatic changes from one microsecond to the next, and a huge impact on materials. Natural lightning and arcs during welding work according to the same physical principles. But what’s the role of electric arc technicians? To transform something inherently unstable, volatile, and intangible into something steady and reliable. In other words, to develop a stable arc that makes welding fast, convenient, and reliable.…

Pulsing as a universal solution in steel welding

An all-singing, all-dancing solution? In many areas of life, they still don’t exist yet. But is it true that there is now ONE universal solution in the field of welding systems? Is there one system to suit all applications? Is there ONE ideal process? Of course not. However, we are talking exclusively about the area of steel welding and the MAG process. One thing quickly becomes clear: where pulsing is used, many things become much easier, and this also applies…

Industrial plasma cleaning of surfaces in joining technology

Acerios

It is a bright flame that can resemble a welding arc, but has nothing to do with joining itself – at most it is involved in the preparation. The arc moves over metal and plastic surfaces with millimeter precision, controlled with the highest level of accuracy by a robot. Afterwards the workpieces look the same as before, but on closer inspection significant differences are apparent.…

Outsourcing prototype welding and freeing up more resources for innovations

Prototypen-Zentrum

What do battery trays in automotive construction and cable car gondolas have in common? The answer is surprisingly simple: the crucial role their many weld seams play when it comes to safety. Both battery trays and cable car gondolas also have to meet high quality and safety standards. The demands on weld seams are high in other sectors too. But the high-tech welding systems required for prototype construction often cost a fortune … …
