EWR 2: Reduce shielding gas consumption and save money now

Posted by Florian Görlitz on Dec 23, 2020 4:59:29 AM

Why shielding gas offers a huge savings potential

The valve is opened and there it is: the shielding gas for welding. Depending on the requirements of the welding task, the gas pressure and gas quantity are still set with the manometer before starting. Pre-flow time? Rather a little longer. Better safe, than sorry. The same applies to the post-flow time. Whether this lasts a few seconds longer or not does not seem to make much difference. Or maybe it does? The fact is: the shielding gas consumption is usually much too high. With the gas management system EWR 2 you can save money in gas shielded arc welding.

Why Electronic Gas Management is Poised to Improve the Cost of Welding Gas

Posted by Scott Huber on May 7, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Gas delivery and gas management is inefficient and in need of some innovation. Looking at the landscape of gas delivery and gas management optimization, there’s very little invested or innovated in the actual deliverance of gas from supply tank through the control device and out the welding nozzle.

Gas Management System EWR 2: Frequently Asked Questions

Posted by Scott Huber on May 1, 2018 10:28:53 AM

When version one of the Electronic Welding Regulator EWR was released, we received a lot of questions about it's performance and how exactly it works to control the flow of shielding gas.

Now with version 2.0 of the EWR out - the EWR 2 / EWR 2 Net - we wanted to answer some of the frequently asked questions we received on the original EWR and update it for the next generation of gas management:

Optimizing Shielding Gas Use Improves Welding Efficiency

Posted by Scott Huber on Jan 4, 2017 10:23:27 AM

In today’s manufacturing world, greater focus is being placed on maximizing the efficiency of all processes and operations on the plant floor.  When it comes to welding, shielding gas consumption is a central issue facing welding engineers and plant managers as they seek efficient and cost-effective manufacturing processes.
