Arc welding has a more concrete presence in our surroundings than you might at first think. It is used by ship, car, and train builders, machine manufacturers, steel frame builders, and pipe makers among others. Modern-day welding and its management are increasingly about digits managed via the cloud, the web, and software, and that's where Kemppi steps in, too.
- ARC WELDING CAN BE USED WITH ANY MATERIAL THAT CONDUCTS ELECTRICITY
- ARC WELDING IS THE MOST COMMON JOINING TECHNOLOGY IN STEEL CONSTRUCTS IN THE WORLD
- UNIVERSAL CLOUD-BASED TECHNOLOGIES ARE REDEFINING QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY IN ARC WELDING RIGHT NOW
Cloud-based welding solutions for global welding production
Cloud-based technology development has a strong presence in today’s digitalized welding. It enables analyzing, refining, and controlling the whole welding production process from a single user interface. All data is available in real time, regardless of your location. This enables individual value creation better than ever before.
Application software for more productive welding
Kemppi Wise products are smart welding software solutions that provide customers with a range of benefits. Depending on the application, Wise products influence either the efficiency or quality of welding. Wise products enable new levels of welding performance that would otherwise be impossible to achieve with the standard MIG/MAG welding process. Pipe root welding, thin sheet welding, and narrow gap welding are typical applications where Wise software is used successfully.
Arc welding basics
Arc welding is a fabrication process that uses an electric arc, which is formed between the electrode and the workpiece, to join the metals being welded. The source of heat in arc welding is produced by the power source. When welding, filler metal is usually needed. Two types of filler metals commonly used in arc welding are welding rods and electrodes.
Today, there are various arc welding processes which have their own applications. The most common types of arc welding are stick (MMA) welding, MIG/MAG welding (GMAW), and TIG welding (GTAW). Arc welding processes may be manual, semi-automatic, mechanized, or automated.
