Collaborative Efforts to Improve Welding Processes Leads to Transformation for MWI Pumps

When MWI Pumps was looking for a robotic welding solution to support their production demands, they considered multiple options, but ultimately decided to give the BotX™ cobot welding system from Red-D-Arc a try. Intrigued by the prospect of the system being up and running within just a few hours and having access to the support of local welding specialists, the team was a little hesitant to believe it could be as easy as they’d heard, but they were pleasantly surprised by the results. And, it turns out that they got even more than what they had expected. On the day that their BotX was being installed, Red-D-Arc brought a member of its parent company Airgas’ Advanced Fabrication team along to visit MWI Pumps’ site in Deerfield Beach, FL. That meeting resulted in a much deeper collaboration between the Red-D-Arc, Airgas and MWI Pumps team — one that has offered additional products and services that have delivered tremendous value to MWI Pumps’ operations.

Several members of the MWI Pumps team shared their thoughts on collaborating with Red-D-Arc and Airgas, and how the experience has impacted their business. Kris Rahall, Application Engineer/Welding Supervisor for MWI Pumps, estimated that the company has seen a 33% increase in productivity and saved 446 hours in manufacturing time on 128 water tanks which equates to nearly 3.5 hours per tank! The company has also improved its weld quality, resulting in fewer repairs and less rework. Overall, it’s been a relationship that’s proven its value and demonstrated that Red-D-Arc and Airgas are committed to working with manufacturers to help them find ways to be more competitive. As MWI Pumps Vice President Daren Eller put it, “The support I’ve received from Red-D-Arc and Airgas — they’re here whenever we need them to be. Once you realize their expertise and the knowledge that they have, and they’re there to help, there shouldn’t be any hesitation at all.”

MWI Pumps is an industrial water pump manufacturer that specializes in crafting high-efficiency water pumps, serving global clients in diverse applications.
