May 2019

May is here and with it, so is the new issue of Welding Productivity. In it, readers will learn how robots overcome the challenges associated with wide weld gaps and more when producing colossal equipment, like the mining excavator shown on the cover. The issue also addresses a fire department in Texas that overcomes some of its own hurdles through the use of a portable exothermic cutting solution.

With the help of the American Welding Society, the team at Welding Productivity also included an article about resistance welding: what it is, which applications it’s well-suited for and how welders can gain more education and experience in the process. To round things out, we also highlighted a handful of OEMs that are making laser welding more attainable to job shops and others that typically rely on arc welding.
