ESAB to showcase fabrication products at Schweissen & Schneiden

Published by
World Pipelines,

ESAB Welding & Cutting will be on stand 10F04 in Hall 10 at Schweissen & Schneiden, which takes place in Dusseldorf (Germany) from 25 - 29 September 2017. Renowned as an innovator in the field of welding and cutting, ESAB will have a number of high technology products and systems on its stand, many of which will be demonstrated live so visitors can see them in action. Knowledgeable, experienced staff will be on hand to explain the technologies and discuss end-user applications.

ESAB to showcase fabrication products at Schweissen & Schneiden

Welding automation

ESAB will have live demonstrations with its new Excellerator Pre-Engineered Robotic Cell, which will show various MAG welding processes, as well as featuring ESAB’s Swift Arc Transfer (SAT™) high productivity welding process.

ESAB will also have live demonstrations of the Gantrac 300 gantry-based welding system with ICE™ submerged arc welding (SAW) and Aristo® 1000 AC/DC power sources with Marathon Pacs™ of wire and BlockPacs of flux. Demonstrations will be done both with automated spiral cladding and welding both in narrow and normal V-joints.

Further live demonstration will include high deposition cladding with 60 mm stainless steel strip.

ESAB will also display a number of different welding tractors, welding heads and accessories for automated welding.

Automated cutting systems

A major focus of the ESAB stand will be automated bevel cutting; there will be live demonstrations of both the NEW DMX Automated Plasma Beveller and the three-torch Global Oxy-Fuel IR-VBA. Both systems are installed on ESAB’s new Suprarex™ HDX heavy duty large gantry cutting machine, which will also be equipped with ESAB’s iSeries plasma system.

The new DMX Automated Plasma Beveller is a reliable, easy to use, compact bevel system designed for safe, high-quality plasma bevel cutting. DMX offers enhanced reliability and Advanced Collision Sensing that easily detects and absorbs a torch crash, then automatically resets without touching the torch. This non-breakaway system enhances operator safety by eliminating dangerous operator tasks. The compact DMX design can be mounted on smaller gantries, making bevel cutting more affordable and saving valuable floor space. DMX also includes SmartBevel™ Technology to simplify bevel programming and deliver consistent, accurate results.

The three-torch Global Oxy-Fuel IR-VBA is the ideal system for complex beveling on thicker mild steel plate. The infinite rotating system features programmable bevel angles and offsets which can change on-the-fly in order to cut variable bevels, or automatically change bevel geometry during a programme. This design offers the highest productivity for customers cutting complex bevels on mild steel up to 75 mm thick.

The iSeries is the most advanced power supply available today, providing exceptional cost performance benefits and with customers having the option to upgrade the unit as their requirements grow and they need more cutting power. Also incorporated within iSeries systems, the Water Mist Secondary (WMS®) process, produces superior cut quality and a lower cost per cut on non-ferrous materials.

Data and productivity

Secure, robust, flexible, scalable and future-proof, the recently introduced ESAB WeldCloud™ online data management platform can be used in conjunction with a number of ESAB’s high end welding systems. Similarly, CutCloud™ is a webserver application with the ability to combine Columbus™ CAD/CAM nesting data and DataLeap™ production data. Both of these provide users with the ability to streamline processes and enhance productivity and quality. Visitors to ESAB’s stand can discuss WeldCloud™ and CutCloud™ to find out how they can benefit from these powerful systems.

Filler metals and fluxes

Other displays on ESAB’s stand will show the company’s extensive range of filler metals and fluxes that can be used with the automated welding systems mentioned above. There will also be PPE (personal protective equipment), manual welding and cutting machines, and gas cutting and welding products.
