Huntingdon Fusion introduces super-heavy-duty weld backing tape
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT has recently developed the super-heavy-duty Argweld weld backing tape. It provides the support to produce perfect weld underbeads when welding with currents of up to 600 amps. Argweld is a glass fibre weld backing system which supports and protects the weld root from oxidation.
voestalpine Böhler Welding – Vacuum packaging for stick electrodes
voestalpine Böhler Welding‘s “Dry System” ensures the availability of ready-to-use, dry electrodes until the moment of welding. It is an efficient alternative to costly climate-controlled storage and handling procedures. The use of “Dry System“ avoids the necessity of redrying and the use of holding ovens and quivers in welding applications with a potential risk of hydrogen-induced or hydrogen-assisted cracking.
CWA Foundation – Mind Over Metal
The CWA Foundation was founded in 2013. The foundation’s key mandates are to support public safety awareness and to address the skilled welding labour shortage in Canada. Since 2014, the foundation’s Mind Over Metal Camps have been giving at-risk youths the opportunity to have a unique welding experience.
