ESAB will also have live demonstrations with its new Excellerator Pre-Engineered Robotic Cell, which will show various MAG welding processes.
ESAB has developed a new microsite to help users of MAG welding increase their productivity and quality.
Initial investment in ESAB welding technology came 18 months ago with the specification of ESAB OK Aristorod 12.50 solid welding wire in 250kg Marathon Pacs for MAG welding of non-alloyed steels.
Together they result in increased productivity and lower welding costs, giving the welder higher performance levels and efficiency whether undertaking manual, mechanized or robotic MAG welding. The new guide provides information on the key steps that need to be followed before using OK AristoRod.
ESAB has introduced OK AristoRod, a new family of solid copper-free MAG welding wires that enables fabricators to get the best out of their welding stations, whether they are semi-automatic, mechanized or robotic.
