2020 is here and the team at Welding Productivity would like to wish you a successful new year to come. To get the new year – and the new decade – started, we filled our January issue with articles that aim to increase your productivity and profitability.
In this issue, we cover EV battery welding, safer welding with fume extraction guns and multi-process welders for extreme productivity. We also cover robotic welding, which is becoming a go-to approach for more fabricators by the day. To increase the potential for robotic welding adoption, there’s an article that dispels the myths of robots on a shop floor, and for fabricators that have already gone down the robotic welding path, there’s an article about new consumables to increase productivity even more. To round things out, we featured an article that showcases the artistic side of welding. We hope you enjoy it.
Optrel announced the e3000X powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR), which is certified to the highest class of breathing protection, removing 99.8 percent of harmful airborne participles to deliver clean, filtered breathing air to welders. The respirator delivers three levels of airflow (240, 210 or 170 L per min.) at twice the efficiency of previous models for… Continued
