    I am in a real oxy-acetylene renaissance. In the last year, I finally figured out that there's almost nothing you can't do with OA. And there are a lot of times when it's really the best option... like when you're fixing something you can't get a vehicle within 100 feet of... or where electrical welding would be unduly hazardous.

    OA is by far my favorite method now. And therefore I'd like to master all of its capabilities.

Chip plants, and bio-pharmaceutical plants are all looking for/requiring the high purity of orbital welding.


    Dave- the pipeworks system is AMAZING. I haven't had a chance to use it, but the last shop i was with bought 2 and I got to seem them in action.
    Very impressive. its an all in one system that is just built for fab shop production.
    I've got the short CD regarding the system. Miller has really done their home work. The advances in the applications has opened many opportunities in the pipe fab industry.

    yeah, its nice if your doing a lot production. I like the fact that a weldor can insert a standard camera memory card and save up to 8 different settings for the 3 processes it will run. and then walk away. and no matter when they get back to the machine, just insert the card and boom back to where you were. we were doing a ton of prefab for a large chiller project and we had most of the guys outside, stick welding eveything and two guys inside using the pipeworx and migging every thing. once the guys inside got it down it was a super time saver.

    Default RMD & Pro-Pulse

    Damage: Miller did a feature article about Bel-Aire mechanical here in Phoenix when they switched from stick and conventional MIG over to RMD and Pro-Pulse. Increased production, less "down time," and higher quality welds.

    Naturally, the crew is UA Local 469 Phoenix

    I'm sure the article is still on the web-site under Industries & Interests, if not you can Google Bel-Aire Mechanical, Phoenix if you'd like to read it.

    dave thanks i'll check it out.. the only thing with the mig is that it hasn't been proven strong enough for high pressure applications that i know of. we've done some bend tests, at the apprentice school, stick/tig vs. mig and the migs didn't hold up as well. i'd use it for every thing but power piping.

    I'd sure like to learn some of the exotics like titanium and inconel. Not really practical for my uses but that's probably why i haven't pursued them yet.
