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.
If a technically interested person opens a magazine or a newspaper you cannot avoid reading articles about how the “Internet of Things” will change our daily live in the coming years.
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:
Robotic welding torches can streamline the welding process and make it a more reliable and faster production. But robotic welding cells and the torch itself is only as good as what you surround it with. Beyond talented personnel, there are tools every welding robot and robotic torch could use to make automated welding a more effective and efficient process. We're going to cover 5 tools that I feel from all my years' experience seeing automated welding operations big and small that many could use to great effect on their robotic welding torch.
During my years as an Area Sales Manager, there was one question that I regularly got asked from our customers & welders:
"Danny, why am I going through an excessive amount of contact tips, gas nozzles, gas diffusors, tip adaptors & liners?"
The answer may be simple.
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.
