Thick plate welding
- October 18, 2015
The MIG/MAG Narrow gap technology from Cloos Robotic Welding for welding thick-walled component parts. In comparison to conventional weld seam preparation, the weld seam volume can be reduced by about 60 per cent, according to the company, reducing welding time and providing a saving potential with regard to the filler material, shielding gas and power consumption.
The basis of the narrow gap technology is the rectangular narrow gap blade with a length of up to 400 mm which guides the wire electrode, the shielding gas and the cooling water. The weld seams with the typical constant seam structure meet the highest quality demands. The relatively low energy supply during narrow gap welding provides special advantages even for steel and for high-strength fine grained structural steel.
