ESAB is proud to be the sole provider of welding equipment for Season One of Metal Shop Masters, a new Netflix reality TV series premiering globally on Friday, September 10, 2021. The show features seven competitors, five men and two women, who face off in elimination-style fabrication challenges (view series teaser video). At the end of six challenges, the last fabricator standing will have earned the title of Metal Shop Master and win a $50,000 prize. The show is hosted by Jo Koy, an award-winning comedian and star of several Netflix stand-up specials. “Every episode gives these distinguished fabricators, ...
EXATON 19.9.NB HF Wire with Niobium and High Ferrite Prevents Cracking in Multi-Pass Stainless Steel Saw Applications
ESAB has introduced Exaton 19.9.Nb HF, classified as an AWS A5.9: ER347 as well as an EN ISO 14343-A S 19 9 Nb, is a 300 series austenitic steel submerged arc welding wire with niobium and high ferrite to further increase weld deposit mechanical properties at elevated temperature. It is ideal for stainless steel applications on pressure vessels (e.g. for components requiring cladding restoration) and other thick plate applications requiring multiple passes (e.g. at pipe mills performing longitudinal welds). “As phosphorus and sulfur levels or other impurities increase, increasing the ferrite content helps resist weld cracking, especially in multi-pass welds,” says Paolo Torchiana, Global Product ...
ESAB Launches Chrome-Molybdenum Filler Metal Range To Improve Welding Results In ASME “B3” Pressure, Power and Process Piping Applications
To expand its line of filler metals for chrome-molybdenum weldments in the refinery, petrochemical, power generation and pressure vessel applications, ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced its new series of B3 SC electrodes and fluxes for SMAW, GTAW and SAW for 2.25% Cr 1% Mo alloyed steels, SA-387 Grade 22, A335 Grade P22 and similar materials.
The new B3 SC filler metals feature modernized formulations designed for applications that require high toughness also in the post-weld heat treated as well as after step cooling treatment. The weld metal is also designed for increased rupture resistance at high service temperatures. Filler metal chemistry is carefully controlled ...
ESAB has announced an improved OK Flux 10.99, an agglomerated neutral basic flux designed for submerged arc welding in heavy industrial environments like petrochemical plants, offshore construction, transport, LNG and LEG tanks, pressure vessel, and pulp and paper industries. The enhanced formula of the flux works, in combination with selected austenitic and nickel-based wires, performs equally well with either AC or DC+ current, and provides significantly improved slag release, increased productivity and better weld quality.
“The high basicity of OK Flux 10.99 provides superior impact and toughness,” says Paolo Torchiana, Global Product Manager, ESAB. “Its excellent weldability in 1G ...
We have exciting and very positive news to share with you! Today, we announced that our parent company Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX) intends to build on our strategic momentum by separating into two independent and publicly-traded companies—one business will focus on fabrication technologies (ESAB) and the other on specialty medical technologies (MedTech Co. and DJO).
From a leadership perspective, I will continue as CEO of ESAB with our current team. Together, we will continue to strengthen ESAB’s fabrication market leadership. ESAB expects to invest its significant free cash flow into growth-related capital investments, innovation, productivity and strategic acquisitions.
ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced its new SmartPipe™ system for automated plasma or oxy-fuel cutting of pipe alongside a table for cutting flat plate. The SmartPipe standard line covers pipe in diameters from 2 to 12 in., lengths up to 20 ft. and weights up to 2,200 lbs. SmartPipe HD (heavy duty) can handle pipe diameters up to 10 ft. (including the common 36, 48 and 72 in. diameters) and lengths up to 60 ft.
The SmartPipe system consists of a pipe turning unit with a manually adjustable chuck and a CNC-controlled turning axis, two or more adjustable-position pipe supports and a support track. A typical configuration would situate the turning unit between the cutting table ...
