Wondering If Advanced Pulsed-MIG Is Right For You?

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

For Ultra Machine and Fabrication (Shelby, N.C.), investing in advanced Pulsed MIG technology was a critical step in positioning the company to win a major contract to provide over 74,000 components for M-ATVs to an Israeli defense firm.

The vehicles are similar to the MRAP (mine resistant ambush protected) vehicles used by the U.S. military, and require the utmost quality from their welds in order to be effective at protecting their occupants from road-side attacks and improvised explosive devices.

The contract called for Ultra to be able to weld MIL-A 46100 ballistic steel in all positions with a 307 stainless steel filler metal, and using the Accu-Pulse™ Pulsed MIG technology in Miller’s Axcess® “multi-MIG” systems, the company was able to produce those components with only 23 defects — a rate of .03 percent.
