Cost-effective, portable, high-deposition joining of thick materials made possible. 

Welding thick metals with large joints.

Welding thick metals with large joints commonly found in heavy industry and equipment manufacturing often requires a process that can produce high deposition rates.Two of the most common processes are spray-arc gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and submerged arc welding (SAW). While both processes have many advantages, they share one disadvantage—they are limited to welding in the flat and horizontal positions.

In the real world, life isn’t flat. Joints are located out of position and hard to reach, or it isn’t plausible to rotate the large parts and sub-assemblies this type of fabrication requires. Pulse welding can provide a solid option for these situations, and it is the best option in others. Why? And how do you determine which method is best for your application?
