ESAB releases latest edition of Svetsaren journal
The latest edition of Svetsaren, a welding and cutting technology journal, is now available from ESAB.
Features include detailed technical articles and case studies relating to manual and automated welding and cutting in the transportation industries.
In addition, the journal contains a round-up of recent news from ESAB, along with new welding and cutting equipment.
One article explains how the friction stir welding (FSW) process has been developed for use on geometries other than straight or circumferential joints.
By mounting an FSW head on a heavy-duty standard industrial robot, ESAB has created a means by which the process can be used on 3D joints.
Known as Rosio, the system can process aluminium alloys with thicknesses up to 5mm.
Svetsaren also features a number of productivity-related application stories.
For example, Emcon Technologies Brazil has reduced cycle times by 25 per cent after switching to a ferritic stainless-metal-cored wire for welding catalytic converters.
Other applications illustrate the benefits of robotic welding, the increased productivity offered by the Marathon Pac bulk wire system, how optimised welding processes can eliminate the need for manual finishing and the advantages of using copper-free wire for robotic welding.
Technical articles in this issue of Svetsaren include an explanation of the way in which low-temperature transformation (LTT) welding consumables can improve fatigue life.
ESAB offers a range of welding consumables for civil and industrial steel pipeline welding. The consumables are designed for the manual welding process but also cater for semi-automatic and fully automatic welding applications.
ESAB has introduced the Aristo Spec range of safety spectacles, which is designed for use with the company’s welding and cutting equipment ranges. Offering a high level of safety with low weight and a sporty design, the spectacles protect the eyes from both impact and UV rays.
ESAB has introduced its Coreweld 46 LS metal-cored wire, which is suitable for high-speed, automated thin-plate welding as well as thicker plate manual welding.
ESAB provides a comprehensive range of consumables for all the major arc welding processes used with nickel alloys, dissimilar welds, cast iron, cryogenic applications and nickel alloy cladding.
ESAB has published its first 2013 issue of ‘The Welder’, a 16-page publication highlighting the company’s latest product developments and applications of welding and cutting technology.
