SuperMIG® - Hybrid Welding Technology Combining Plasma and GMAW in One Torch
From telescopic mobile crane booms, to excavator arms and bulldozer chassis, SuperMIG® can increase productivity in many heavy-welding scenarios.
SuperMIG® has been utilized in the railcar industry for applications ranging from welding sheet metal side panels to welding longitudinal frame members.
One of the original target segments for SuperMIG®, the shipyard holds many applications that can benefit from the technology, including welding hull stiffeners and deck panels.
While still a relatively new industry for SuperMIG®, the technology has show the ability to "vaporize" galvanized coatings, which allows for welding on clean/pre-heated material, thus decreasing the amount of porosity and substantially increasing travel speeds.
The joggle joints on the head, the longitudinal welds on the shell, and the circumferential welds joining them all together. SuperMIG® can increase productivity and reduce costs for virtually every weld in the fabrication of a pressure vessel.
First used in North America to fabricate stainless steel pipe from flat plates for water treatment facilities, SuperMIG®'s power and versatility create opportunities to benefit many applications in the infrastructure segment from wind towers to fabricated bridge girders.
