  • 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,…

  • 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…

    Heavy Duty Welding: The Solution for Greater Productivity

    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…

  • Steel Welding: Simple and Cost-Effective

    Whether in the construction industry, mechanical engineering or the automotive and supply industry: steel is one of the most commonly used materials and is available in different alloys and in large volumes. Moreover, steel can be recycled without any loss and is easy to work. Push systems are often used for steel welding. They offer the advantages of a simple design and high productivity at…
