High Strength Steels: optimizing mechanical & impact properties

High strength steels continue to be popular for fabrication and manufacturing applications that require materials with less weight and thinner sections — without sacrificing strength. These include the building of cranes, Offshore Jack-up legs, heavy equipment, pressure vessels, bridges and more…

P 52T – The Red Tack Welding

Tack welding not only holds the assembled components in place and establishes their mutual location but also ensures their alignment.

Using Metal-Cored Wire in Heavy Equipment Manufacturing

While solid welding wire has been the status quo for heavy equipment manufacturing, switching to metal-cored wire can drive tangible cost savings.
Metal-cored wire offers several key benefits that help improve efficiencies compared to solid wire…

Factors for Selecting the Right Stick Electrode

Stick welding is a skill that takes much practice to master, and selecting the correct electrode for the job can be equally challenging. Stick electrodes are available in a wide range of types, each of which provides different mechanical properties and operates with a specific type of welding power source…
