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.
