WHY SHOULD A COMPANY CONSIDER BRINING ED TO THEIR FACILITY?
hard for many individuals to implement welding changes unless that person can
actually demonstrate that the changes are beneficial and cost effective. Its may
be difficult for your weld decision maker to convince weld individuals that the
weld practices they have been doing for decades may not have been optimum
CATALYST FOR WELD CHANGE. Sometimes it's beneficial
to bring in an outsider like myself to be the catalyst for the necessary weld
shop changes. With a short term contract OF TYPICALLY 3 TO FIVE DAYS, I have the
unique skills necessary to resolve your welding issues, establish Best Weld Practices
or Process Controls or completely reorganize your welding department to be more
cost efficient and produce superior, consistent weld quality.
EXPERTISE. In contrast to many traditional managers, I have the practical
weld skills and extraordinary weld process control expertise necessary to instantly
set optimum welds on any applications from a high speed, production robot MIG
welds to all position MIG, flux cored or TIG pipe welds. I also have extensive
expertise in establishing effective weld process controls for automated GTAW pipe
and cladd welds or for those micro GTAW / plasma welds as used in the electronic,
WELD CREDIBILITY is
an important management trait for any welding shop undergoing change. My hands
on approach and weld process expertise on most processes quickly provides that
credibility. My ability to cut through weld shop myths and the sales influenced
is again important for the implementation of the most cost effective ways to weld.
SHOP CULTURE. It takes years to develop
a weld shop culture, however in a matter of days, I can get your manual or robot
welding department out of it's bad habits to a level where it attains it's highest
weld production and quality potential.
the welding quality and productivity of your manufacturing company rely on the
expertise of a salesman?
Of course you may ask why bring me to your shop when you can get
"free advice" from the major weld equipment manufacturers.
decades the welding industry has relied on the companies that make welding equipment
and consumables to provide practical MIG welding process and application advice.
Lincoln Miller, Hobart and ESAB have had fifty years to educate MIG users on how
to control a process that has two simple weld controls. Fifty years later and
the majority of global weld personnel still play around with MIG and flux cored
universal lack of GMAW (MIG-MAG) weld process expertise that today prevails throughout
the global welding industry has to be an indication of the quality of the "free
weld advice" provided by salesmen.

MANUFACTURERS & MIG EXPERTISE:
ESAB Miller and Hobart after four decades of manufacturing MIG equipment have
not been able to educate welding end users on how to control the MIG process,
then how "weld qualified" do you believe the Japanese, Swedish, Austrian,
German robot manufacturers are?
MOST ROBOT APPLICATIONS ARE ON SIMPLE, CARBON STEEL GAUGE APPLICATIONS <5mm,
HOWEVER THE DELUGE OF DAILY WELDING PROBLEMS ON THESE APPLICATIONS COST THE MANUFACTURING
BOTHER CALIBRATING THE ROBOT. 1987-2007:
For two decades many robot manufactures and intergrators have not calibrated the
wire feed rate, weld current or weld voltage shown on the robot pendant with the
actual welding parameters.
I first went to work as a senior weld engineer for one of the largest and most
respectable robot manufactures, I was amazed to find their weld robots would be
sent to customers without weld parameter calibration between the robot control,
interface and power source. Put a wire feed speed of 600 in./min and 30 volts
into the robot weld program and the customer may have in reality received a weld
with 400 in./min and 25 volts from the power source. I found out the calibation
issue was a univerasl robot problem and in 2007 its still a common issue.
With many robot companies and intergrators, the weld application and weld process
are typically secondary to the robot profits and related equipment sales. At an
automotive company I visited in Canada, the Motorman robots used Hobart power
sources. The welding current on the power source meter indicated 250 amps, the
current programmed on the robot pendant was 390 amps. How can any company establish
effective welding procedures with this nonsense? How can anyone provide effective
process training for robot personnel? How can a company comply with ISO requirements
if the weld data you work with is meaningless?
Next time you order a robot remember "robot companies have a prime concern
their annual volume of robot sales, few companies are concerned about your robot
weld process issues. To get the correct tobot calibration data that should be
on the robot purchase contract, I highly recommend my Robot MIG process Control
