Efficient and cost-effective welding
Heat-reduced, directionally stable and powerful arc with deep penetration for the upper power range.
Non-alloyed, low-alloy and high-alloy steels and high-tensile fine-grained steels.
- Up to 60% overall cost savings when comparing forceArc® vs. standard spray arc welding.
- Up to 35% electricity cost savings with the same deposition rate when compared to conventional spray arc welding.
- Up to 50% less harmful emissions through reduced welding fumes.
- Cost savings thanks to fewer passes.
- Less spatter means less finishing work.
- Less distortion thanks to heat-reduced, concentrated arc.
- Highly dynamic current control produces a directionally stable arc with great force and great penetration depth with fewer undercuts.
Process comparison of forceArc®/standard spray arc through TWI
- Butt welds which are welded with the forceArc® process and have tight opening angles of 30 ° and 40 ° comply with the requirements of EN ISO 15614-1:2004
- Due to the lower weld volume, the welding times are reduced compared to the standard spray arc process with an opening angle of 60° by up to 50%
- Fillet welds created with forceArc® provide a mitred profile without undercut which also satisfies the requirements of EN ISO 15614-1:2004
- Fillet welds created with forceArc® have a greater penetration depth
