Swartfager, RMD, Pulsed MIG and Metal-Cored Wires

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Swartfager Welding is the epitome of a family business done right. What started six generations ago in the 1800s as a traditional blacksmith operation has evolved today into a booming modern fabrication business.

We visited Swartfager to discuss with them one of their more successful process advancements: transitioning to metal-cored wires and optimizing these applications with new Pulsed MIG and Regulated Metal Deposition® capabilities as made possible by the PipeWorx multiprocess pipe welding system.

Benefits achieved by Swartfager include increased productivity, less post-weld cleanup, and easier operation and training for its workforce – all while meeting code requirements.

Our friends and Welding Design & Fabrication recently ran with Steve Latvis’ article on induction heating at Topp’s Mechanical in Tecumseh, Neb.

A snippet:

With induction heating Topp’s Mechanical has a solution that exceeds the quality standards of its heat-treatment applications and provides significant operational benefits including:
• Faster time-to-temperature;
• Consistent heating throughout the entire part;
• Easier to apply/wrap heat;
• Greater reliability and lower consumable costs;
• More efficient use of labor; and
• Improved employee safety.
