Axxair Orbital System Makes Welding Small Pipes Easy

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.


Closed-Head Pipe Welders

Axxair Orbital Fusion Closed Welding Systems are comprised of two main parts: the
Axxair Orbital Fusion Closed Welding Head
and the Axxair Orbital Inverter Power Supply.  The Orbital Fusion Closed Welding Head fully encompasses the assembly being welded.  This means that an inert gas environment can be created around the part, preventing it from the risk of oxidation that it might be exposed to during a welding operation that relies solely on a gas nozzle.  The Orbital Fusion Closed Welding Head also has a ring drive that enables full 360 degree motion around the weld joint, all the while keeping a consistent torch angle.  Furthermore, it is capable of going over 360 degrees for when slope-in and slope-out parameters are needed.

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.
