An Industry In Distress

The manufacturing industry is in distress. There is a shortage of skilled talent and this gap is only widening. While manufacturing companies are able to make goods faster and cheaper than ever, there is a growing lack of skilled manufacturing employees to ensure that production continues. Industry projections from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, among other industry analysts, predict that over the next decade, more than 2 million manufacturing jobs will go unfilled across the U.S.

multi pipe welded array
Welding small diameter tubing can be difficult.  The tight radii often require expert welders to deliver precise torch manipulation with finesse.  If the welder is not skilled enough, the out of position areas are at risk of poor quality due to gravity affecting the weld pool and ineffective torch angles.  If out of position welds cannot be completed satisfactorily, the part must be rotated.  However, some assemblies can’t be rotated because of size constraints or they might rotate off of center.  If a mechanized welding solution is desired for small diameter components, look no further than our Axxair Orbital Fusion Closed Welding Head Systems.

Congratulations to Joe Rios, Carlos Hernandez and the rest of the Smokin’ Welders team who cleaned up big at a cookoff hosted by the Associated Builders and Contractors Texas Gulf Coast chapter.

We entered 3 teams in this year’s cookoff which collectively won the title of Grand Champion. The individual Red-D-Arc teams  dominated the contest with the following results in the various  categories:

Fajitas – 2nd, 3rd and 4th place
Chicken – 4th, 5th and 7th place
Brisket – 1st, 4th and 10th place
Ribs – 1st, 4th and 7th place

The annual cook-off was held to raise money for Veterans and The Back-Packs for kids program which sends food home with school kids that need food for the weekends. The contest also helps support the Dream Center which provides kids in need with shoes, clothes and school supplies.

We tried to get Carlos to share some of his recipes, but he was hesitant about giving up his winning secrets.

Great job guys. Thanks to everyone who helped the RDA Smokin’ Welders win big.

Paint Booth Blast Cleaning
Industrial paint booths require periodic cleaning in order to maintain productivity and quality. On average, paint booth cleaning intervals range between 6 to 12 months. Typical cleaning methods involve hand scraping and wire brushing. Awkward angles and hard-to-clean areas like seams and bolt heads make this time consuming process very challenging.

To help our customers address this challenge Red-D-Arc has developed a Dry Ice Blasting Paint Booth Rental Package. This turnkey solution includes dry ice blasting machines, dry ice, high pressure air (if required), synthetic coatings (to limit future paint adhesion on booth interior) and on-site operating and safety training.
