ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced a full suite of mechanised welding systems.. including the Railtrac™ B42V (a rail-mounted tractor with a new weaving unit), the Railtrac BV2000 (a rail-mounted tractor for rail hardfacing), the Miggytrac™ B501 (compact, battery-operator tractor) and the Miggytrac™ B501 (compact, battery-operator tractor) and the Miggytrac B5001 (compact, programmable tractor)..
"There are four great reasons to consider mechanised welding for long, and even not-so-long, joints and seams: productivity, consistency, flexibility and ergonomics," says Edward Hansen, Global Director of Product Management, Flexible Automation, ESAB.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has expanded and enhanced the series of MXL MIG/MAG torches for industrial-duty applications. ESAB has boosted the duty cycle from 35 to 60% and now offers a full range of MXL gas- and water-cooled torches designed for industrial-duty applications. All MXL torches feature knuckle joints and spring supports that improve flexibility to reduce wrist strain. A new handle offers better ergonomics and soft-grip areas on the 341, 411W and 511W models further increase comfort. A refreshed front-end design accepts the same standard ESAB consumables.
MXL torches are available with the following rated outputs, with duty cycles respectively listed for mixed gas/CO2: ...
Unless weldable materials are relatively thin, edge preparation is usually necessary for achieving high-integrity welded joints. Depending on the joint design, this requires one or more beveled edges on one or both of the components. Types of bevel are named after the capital letters that look similar, the most common being V, X, Y and K. However, welding preparation is not the only reason for cutting bevels - another application example is countersinking Hardox plate for fixing with countersunk screws. Because of the extreme wear-resistance of Hardox, even costly carbide-tipped drills and countersinks have a limited life, so plasma beveling is an attractive alternative for producing countersunk ...
ESAB Welding & Cutting Products will showcase its Quick Weld Productivity Analyzer (QWPA), an easy-to-use calculator for total weld cost analysis, in booth C12574 at FABTECH 2018, held Nov. 6 – 8 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. This online tool can help fabricators see the cost impact of different aspects of production. The QWPA produces calculations for:
Net deposition rate and welding speed per pass after selecting weld process and inputting data, (wire/electrode type, diameter, parameters, joint configuration, joint cross seam area, joint length, number of passes). Weld operation time calculation. A sliding scale for arc-on time/operating factor calculates weld metal ...
