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…

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…

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.…

Welding and Its Various Challenges in Shipbuilding – A Customer Story

Welding in shipbuilding – a Herculean task. The Gulet shipyard in Croatia primarily builds cruise ships in the form of large yachts, so is well placed to report extensively on the extreme welding challenges faced in the industry: limited space requires great skill and reliable selection of the suitable welding position. Welding while lying down or kneeling are par for the course here. The rugged, rocky Adriatic coast of Croatia spans 6000 kilometers. Set against the backdrop of turquoise waters…

High-Performance Welding: A 65 Percent Increase in Productivity. A Customer Story

Brazilian company Painco manufactures welded components and assemblies from sheet metal such as huge wheel rims, excavator buckets, entire wheel loaders, and wind turbines for the construction and earth-moving equipment, passenger and goods vehicles, and renewable energy segments. The joining of exceptionally large components such as these is clearly categorized as high-performance welding. If there are lots of weld seams to deal with too, this process can also generate high welding speeds due to the huge deposition rate. In order…

Heavy Duty Welding: The Solution for Greater Productivity

heavy-duty-welding

The heavy duty or high-performance welding process is mainly used for welding huge components, such as combine harvester wheel rims, excavators, telescopic handlers, or truck semi-trailers. The high welding speeds typically used for these processes enable both long weld seams and low-spatter joining. Read on to find out what exactly heavy duty welding is, how the process arose, and the applications and materials suitable for use with this welding process. What is Heavy Duty Welding? Gas metal arc (GMAW) heavy…
