Welding

Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, mostly metals, by using high heat to melt the parts together and allowing them to cool, causing fusion. It is a widely used technique in the fabrication of equipment such as tubes or heat exchangers. Below you can find the latest newsitems that involve the topic of welding.

Experimenting with welding superduplex without filler metal

The main reason for using lean duplex is its significant resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking because of its dual phases.

HFT®’s QuickPurge® for large diameter pipe purging

Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®’s innovative QuickPurge® Systems, which are manufactured up to 88″ (2,235mm), dramatically reduces the space that needs to be purged, thereby reducing purging time dramatically, making huge savings in both time and gas costs.

Binyan He becomes CEng and MWeldI

TWI Senior Project Leader, Binyan He has been elected as a Member of The Welding Institute. The election committee also approved Binyan’s registration as a Chartered Engineer. This means that she can now also carry the designatory letters CEng and MWeldI after her name.

EWM expanding its XQ series in MIG/MAG welding

EWM AG is expanding its XQ series in the area of MIG/MAG welding. Following on from the Titan XQ puls, the manufacturer of arc welding technology is now releasing its new MIG/MAG multi-process welding machines – the Phoenix XQ puls and the Taurus XQ Synergic. 

Weld Purging HFT® develop a Dew Point Sensor

Innovators in Weld Purging Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have recently developed a Dew Point Sensor, an important predication instrument of when water will form on metal surfaces in the welding environment.

Mike elected to Welding Institute Governing Council

TWI announced that BAE Systems Maritime Submarines Welding Manager and Fellow of The Welding Institute, Mike Skyrme, has been elected to the governing council of The Welding Institute.

ESAB offer guidance for welding duplex stainless steels

A team of engineers from ESAB Welding & Cutting Products’ Process Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, demonstrated that the pitting resistance equivalent number (PREN) value of duplex stainless steel alloys may lead to a misleading prediction of pitting corrosion resistance in the as-welded material.

Superior Tube secures three Nadcap reaccreditations

Superior Tube has been awarded three prestigious Nadcap reaccreditations for its heat treating, welding, and non-destructive testing programs.

Coherent signs an agreement with II-VI

Coherent and II-VI Incorporated announced that they have entered into a supply agreement creating a collaboration to enable faster process development and streamlined production services for automotive laser welding applications.
