Heavy-Duty Welding: How Megmeet-welding Revolutionize It

Many industries, such as heavy equipment, shipbuilding, steel and container, and mechanical engineering, rely on welding to join large and thick metal parts. They need welding solutions that are high-quality, efficient, and reliable, and can cope with high-volume and high-speed demands. But traditional welding machines, such as thyristor or transformer-based ones, are not up to the task. They consume too much energy, perform poorly, offer limited welding options, and are heavy and cumbersome. That’s why heavy-duty welding, or high-performance welding, is the answer for higher productivity.

I. What is Heavy Duty Welding?

Heavy duty welding is a specialized welding process that uses gas metal arc welding (GMAW) with solid wires of 1.0 mm or 1.2 mm in diameter. It is characterized by high welding speeds, allowing for long weld seams and low-spatter joining. A process is considered heavy duty if more than 15 m of wire is fed per minute, or if the deposition rate exceeds 8 kg per hour with larger wire diameters, such as 1.6 mm or 2.0 mm. Heavy duty welding requires the right gas mixture and a specialized water-cooled welding torch with an extended stick-out distance, enabling higher wire speeds and deposition rates. The stick-out distance is the distance between the end of the contact tip and the workpiece surface, which is greater than with the conventional GMAW process.

II. History of Heavy Duty Welding.

The history of heavy duty welding can be traced back to the 1980s, when John Church, a Canadian engineer, introduced the TIME process, which involved using a four-component shielding gas for faster and more cost-effective welding. TIME stands for Transferred Ionized Molten Energy, which means the transfer of high amounts of energy to the molten filler metal in an ionized plasma. However, the original gas mixture was expensive and complex, and similar effects can be achieved with fewer gas components if the right equipment is used. Today, a three-component gas mixture of argon, carbon dioxide, and oxygen is commonly used for heavy duty welding. The development of double-wire and tandem technology further enhanced heavy duty welding, allowing for even greater cost-effectiveness and control in the welding process.

III. Application of Heavy Duty Welding.

Heavy duty welding finds extensive application in industries where high welding speeds and deposition rates are essential. It excels in tasks involving long weld seams, multiple runs, and overlay welding of large areas. It can handle various metal materials, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and alloys. It can also perform different welding processes, such as CO2/MAG/MIG, TIG, MMA, and carbon arc gouging, depending on the equipment and settings. Heavy duty welding can be used manually or automated, depending on the application and requirements.

IV. Heavy-Duty Welding: How Megmeet Welding Revolutionize It

One of the best manufacturers of heavy-duty welding machines is Megmeet Welding Technology, which offers a series of innovative and intelligent welding machines that use full-digital IGBT inverter technology. IGBT stands for insulated gate bipolar transistor, which is a type of power semiconductor device that can switch high currents and voltages very fast and efficiently. By using IGBT inverter technology, Megmeet Welding Technology can achieve:

  1. High energy efficiency and power factor, saving up to 30% of electricity costs and reducing carbon emissions.

  2. Excellent welding performance and stability, especially for pulse welding and arc starting and stopping, ensuring spatter-free and beautiful welds with high penetration and strength.

  3. Multiple welding processes and functions integrated into one machine, such as CO2/MAG/MIG, TIG, MMA, and carbon arc gouging, enabling the welder to handle various metal materials and welding situations.

  4. Compact and lightweight design, making them easy to transport and operate.
