Flexible or Hard Automation? Why?

Posted by Brandon Kunze on Jan 7, 2019 10:18:20 AM

When considering an automated welding process, fully or semi-automated, it is important to consider and compare the advantages and disadvantages of both for your operation, and how well each may (or may not) integrate into your established welding process. Sometimes, deciding one way or the other is very clear based on the kinds of welds being performed, and other times it’s a matter of how much productivity you need to meet your goals.

How to Test Your Fume Extraction System

Posted by Etienne Blouin on Jul 30, 2018 2:29:52 PM

With fume extraction welding, the effectiveness of the smoke capture is always dependent on the strength of the fume extraction system. No matter how effective the torch or skilled the welder, without a system strong enough to capture the smoke, both the welder and the environment will not be spared from the harmful effects of metallic fumes.
