Milling instead of grinding – with the hand angle miller – for a perfect weld root preparation

While visiting a steel company in Wuppertal (Germany) the concept was formed to eliminate the grinding dust. In this company four employees have been working on ship bulkhead doors for shipyards in a production hall of around 150 m². Caused by the grinding with abrasive flap-wheels, grinding- and cutting discs, the air within the production Read more about Milling instead of grinding – with the hand angle miller – for a perfect weld root preparation[…]

Prediction of material properties, cracks and deformations of welded structures

The perfect connection

In the manufacture of metal bellows couplings, bellows and hub connections are a critical issue. While steel or stainless steel couplings can be combined with a special micro plasma welding process, this method is not suitable for combinations of aluminum and steel. Adhesive bonding processes can be used here, but they can fail under extreme Read more about The perfect connection[…]
