translas gullco partner5Click image to enlargeTranslas, a global manufacturer of on- torch fume extraction solutions, has announced a distribution partnership with Gullco International Ltd. Based in Newmarket, Ont., Gullco will be the global distributor of Translas’ newest fume extraction solutions, namely Translas 7XE Semi-Automatic Fume Extraction welding gun and the ClearO2 W-Series hi-vac units, designed and engineered for welding automation.

 “With air quality regulations being a growing concern globally, and with automation gaining traction worldwide, we see a strong potential for growth in a wide variety of applications. Gullco has been a leader for more than 66 years in the automation industry and is a trusted international manufacturer and world supplier of welding automation including welding carriages, cutting carriages and plate beveling machines for automated welding and cutting to global manufacturing brands. Gullco is an ideal partner for Translas and we look forward to a successful collaborative partnership.”

“Gullco is pleased to work with Translas as a premier partner and to add the 7XE Semi-Automatic Fume Extractor welding gun and ClearO2 W-Series hi-vac units to their portfolio of products designed with exceptional engineering. According to Nick Drake, Gullco’s Global Marketing Manager.

Welding fumes contain vapours, a mixture of airborne gas by-products and fine particles. The composition of the mixture depends on the welding method and the products being welded, but the vapours and gases released during welding can lead to serious health problems. Short-term exposure can lead to nausea, dizziness, or eye, nose and throat irritation. Prolonged exposure to welding fumes can lead to cancer of the lung, larynx and urinary tract, as well as nervous system and kidney damage. Certain gasses, such as helium, carbon dioxide and argon, displace oxygen and argon can pose suffocation risks, particularly in enclosed work areas.

Extraction at the source proves to be the safest and most effective solution to achieve a healthier work environment. The Translas 7XE Semi-Automatic Fume Extractor is a welding gun engineered to capture hazardous welding fumes directly at the source. The Translas fume extraction solution extracts up to 95 per cent of the welding fumes directly at the source. When using the Translas 7XE in combination with the ClearO2 W-Series hi-vac units, the harmful welding fumes and individual particulates are no longer released directly into the air; they are captured immediately as generated.

Effective job estimation strategies

By Tim Wilson

Most companies set their cost targets based on what they’ve done already. There are two problems with this: first, it limits opportunity for improvement; and second, it doesn’t help much with new jobs. As the saying goes: if you look in the rear view mirror, you might drive off a cliff.
