Welding Design & Fabrication: Slashing Welding Preheat Time

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

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.

No Turning Back: Pipe Welding System Kicks it up a Notch

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Fabricating and MetalWorking recently ran an article on Shinn Mechanical of Kent, WA and its use of Miller’s PipeWorx welding system. An excerpt from the article:

Shop operators here complete joints three to four times faster than shops that rely solely on stick and TIG technology. How? They use a pipe-specific multi-process welding system from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. (Appleton, WI) called PipeWorx™ that was recommended by Jim Hedberg, a representative from Pacific Welding Supply (Tacoma, WA).

The PipeWorx system uses Pro-Pulse™ pulsed MIG and RMD™ (regulated metal deposition) processes, as well as stick, TIG and flux cored processes that have been optimized specifically for pipe fabrication. The system also provides traditional MIG processes. Switching between processes requires only the push of one button, with no need to manually switch polarity, cables or hoses, thus increasing productivity and eliminating a potential source of errors.

You can read the whole article here. You can also watch a video of the guys from Shinn discussing RMD and Pro-Pulse here.
