Mobile Crane Boom Welding Trial (results at the end)

This video shows our unique hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®) in action making a single-pass CJP weld on a prototype mobile crane boom section. This scenario utilized 3/16" 100KSI HSLA, with a root opening of 0.052" and copper backing in the 1G position; and was welded at a travel speed of 23 in/min (584 mm/min) using 95/5 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas and 0.052” ER70S-6 wire in a spray transfer - CV mode (video produced by Ryan Kot at the Weldobot Tech Center in Holly, MI).

SuperMIG® welding - 1/2” (12.7mm) @ 20 ipm


This video shows our unique hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®) in action, making a single-pass CJP weld in 1/2" ASTM A36 mild steel, with a root opening of 2 mm and copper backing, in the 1G position, and at a travel speed of 20 in/min (508 mm/min). This scenario utilized 90/10 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas and 1/16” ER70S-6 wire in a spray transfer (CV).

SuperMIG® welding 3/8" (9.54 mm) @ 21 ipm


This video shows our unique hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®) in action, making a single-pass CJP weld in 3/8" ASTM A36 mild steel, with a root opening of 2 mm and copper backing, in the 1G position, and at a travel speed of 21 in/min (533 mm/min). This scenario utilized 90/10 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas and 1/16” ER70S-6 wire in a spray transfer (CV). 

SuperMIG® galvanized welding - 2 mm @ 60 ipm

This video shows our unique hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®) in a lap joint/fillet weld configuration, in the 2F position, running at a travel speed of 60 in/min (1,524 mm/min). This scenario utilized 90/10 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas and 0.045” ER70S-3 wire in CV mode

SuperMIG® - hybrid plasma-GMAW process

This video shows our unique hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®) in action, with the plasma arc going in the front promoting the penetration and the GMAW performing the joint filling (welding going from left to right). Weldobot's proprietary technology eliminates the electric arc interference allowing for the two processes to work in same welding torch.
