Increased submerged arc productivity with ESAB cored wires

ESAB Group : 06 August, 2001  (New Product)
Using cored wires for Submerged arc welding, the most productive of all conventional welding processes, provides increased metal deposition rates compared to solid wires, giving a dramatic increase in productivity on all commonly welded steels.
Using cored wires for Submerged arc welding, the most productive of all conventional welding processes, provides increased metal deposition rates compared to solid wires, giving a dramatic increase in productivity on all commonly welded steels.

Higher deposition rates means a reduction in the number of passes needed to complete a joint, or increased welding speeds in applications such as fillet welding, giving typical gains in productivity of 20% with metal cored types and up to 30% with basic flux cored types.

The tubular design of cored wires gives a significantly increased melting or burn off rate over solid wires for any given current for the same diameter, more pronounced for the SAW process than with the gas shielded process due to the higher currents used.

Essentially similar in design to cored wires for MIG/MAG welding, cored wires for submerged arc welding are available within the expanded ESAB product range in metal cored and basic flux cored types in sizes from 2.4, 4.0mm.

Suitable for welding mild, low-temperature, high strength, and creep resistant steels, the range of OK Tubrod cored wires for SAW can also be used on twin wire, multi-power (tandem), and synergic cold wire applications.

Further benefits offered by cored wires include superior mechanical properties, low temperature toughness is maintained down to -40 deg/c with OK Tubrod 15.00S. Flux consumption savings of approximately 15% can also be made when using basic cored types.
