Perfect Welding

COMMON CHALLENGES OF WELDING HEAVY COMPONENTS

Manufacturing heavy-duty machinery components come with a unique set of welding challenges, such as long seam lengths, joint inconsistencies, multiple weld layers, and thick base materials. Other factors to consider are welder skill level, torch angles, transfer modes, material contamination, and other overlooked elements. You also want to avoid safety issues, welder fatigue and minimize rework that can quickly become expensive and detrimental to your profit.

Welding challenges

Welders are an essential part of any manufacturing operation and yet, one of the most overlooked. Challenges that are faced every day include keeping long weld seams consistent while facing welder fatigue. Any resulting inconsistencies may require rework. It’s a domino effect, costing time and money.

A simple solution is to provide them with a lightweight torch, but some seams are too long to be completed without stops and restarts. Specific best practices can make these weld starts and stops blend effortlessly.

In addition, varied material thicknesses, from thick to thin, provide a set of challenges that may involve pre-heat, multiple weld passes, or consideration of the best mode of transfer for the application.
