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.

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.
