When amperages of up to 700 A regularly rush through the arc, one thing quickly becomes clear—welding is an energy-intensive process. This brings with it the question: “Is it possible to save energy here?” The answer is a resounding yes! Energy-efficient welding machines and processes are essential in doing so. We show you five features that you should look for in an energy-efficient welding machine. Like many other technical processes, welding also has an impact on the environment; resources such as energy, shielding gas, welding wire, and various wear parts are consumed, while welding fume i ..read more

3M ago
Every day we cross bridges, hold on to stair railings, lean over balustrades, and rely on the same thing when doing so: support and safety. These properties can only be achieved through flawless, high-quality weld seams produced by qualified manual welders. We are talking about a professional field in which there is a huge shortage of skilled workers—a problem that is causing concern in the entire industry. But what is actually important when it comes to manual welding? What can happen in the event of weld defects? And why will this profession always exist despite advancing automation? “Welder ..read more

We are all living in volatile times. The energy revolution, geopolitical tensions, and uncertain supply chains are putting us all to the test almost every day. Discussions are often controversial and heated. But one thing is sure: production is more challenging than ever—because in the future it will have to be more resource-efficient, faster, more flexible, more cost-effective, more environmentally friendly, and in small batch sizes. This is where metal 3D printing comes in. Metal 3D printing: what is it exactly? Metal 3D printing, like all other 3D printing processes, is a manufacturing proc ..read more

Watch Pia as she casually puts on her AR goggles, picks up her welding torch and pulls her weld. Noise, smoke and heat–all totally absent. She’s learning her craft on a welding simulator. Something that just a few years ago would have seemed like science fiction is now commonplace. But how does virtual welding work exactly? Is the experience comparable with “real” welding, and will it improve the quality of welder training and save money at the same time? And the biggest question of all: What are the limits of virtual training? Digitalization. It’s transforming the world. Every day it’s challe ..read more

They soar gracefully through the air, taking to the skies to hunt their prey as night falls, before eventually landing on Rich Baker’s welding table. Whether it’s a majestic eagle or a wise owl, the Canadian artist has a passion for birds of prey. He took a somewhat circuitous route into art, traveling through the worlds of country music and theater before finally arriving where he is today – his workshop deep in the heart of nature in Canada. Here, he takes ordinary pieces of metal and transforms them into works of art that would be at home in the animal kingdom. A Conventional Start While it ..read more

When Light Becomes a Danger
Perfect Welding Blog

Welding is an exciting and challenging job. In addition to manual dexterity, welders need extensive knowledge when it comes to choosing the right filler metals, welding parameters, clamping devices and welding sequences. Demanding and well-paid, this profession is both interesting and varied, but it also involves risks, especially if welders fail to protect themselves adequately during manual welding. Danger of Arc Radiation! In arc welding, the air between the electrode and the workpiece is ionized by applying an electrical voltage. This creates plasma. It has a temperature of several thousan ..read more

It knows what needs to be done and how. It reacts to the conditions and reliably guides welders to the desired result. It helps to quickly train welders and offers the best possible control over every weld. It supports companies in saving time and resources. It’s called weld sequencing. But what exactly is it? Welding with sequences is hugely beneficial for welders and companies alike. “Sequences” involve individual steps or instructions which guide workers through the welding process. Digital weld sequencing helps companies to quickly train new welders in times of skills shortages and thereby ..read more
