Airgas to Debut New Products at FABTECH 2017
- Port-A-Weld and Orbital Welding Systems on Display
- “Unlocking the Hidden Costs of Welding” Seminar Returns by Popular Demand
Airgas, an Air Liquide company, and the leading U.S. supplier of industrial gases, welding technologies, and safety products, announced today that its Advanced Fabrication Technologies team will be exhibiting at FABTECH® 2017. Airgas will debut new products at Booth #B27013, November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Welding and fabrication experts will be on hand to discuss innovative systems available for rent, lease, and sale. Airgas will feature welding shielding gases available in all modes of delivery for use in arc welding and cutting processes. Customers will have an opportunity to review the company’s newest welding, industrial gas and safety products firsthand.
The booth will showcase new products such as the multi-functional Machitech Automation pipe profiling system, which uses a Hypertherm plasma platform to cut everything from pipe and beams to flat plates. A Miller Weld Automation robotic welding system, vending solutions and the Radnor® line of products will be on display. And an OTC robotic system on a 30-foot slider — which can robotically weld multiple projects at the same time — will be welding unique giveaways throughout the conference.
Red-D-Arc Welderentals, an Airgas company, will debut the Port-A-Weld System (PWS), a portable welding package that allows operators to quickly and accurately position the welding arc and speed up the welding process. Various power source and welding head combinations are available to facilitate submerged arc, MIG and TIG welding with this system.
A new orbital welding rental solution will be debuted for fusion welding, tube-to-tube welding, as well as tube cutting and beveling. Red-D-Arc Welderentals experts will showcase an orbital saw, facer and a welding system in the booth this year. The new orbital options can be used for a wide range of applications, from food and beverage and pharmaceutical uses, to aerospace, semi-conductor, and shipyard production.
Airgas experts in welding, safety, eBusiness and automation services will be available to discuss everything from retrofitting and periodic maintenance schedules for CNC cutting machines to gas efficiency and online capabilities. Airgas can help customers increase the life span and productivity of their equipment as well as improve purchasing and account management through the robust e-commerce system.
Airgas customers and FABTECH attendees are invited to register for Airgas’ Unlocking the Hidden Cost of Welding seminar, featuring information on improving welding efficiency. The high-demand program helps customers assess the economics of their welding processes, highlighting ways to determine where savings in time and money can be achieved while concurrently enhancing product quality and reducing consumption of welding gases and related consumables. Airgas will also offer seminars on Arc Welding Emissions and Heat Treating. More information is available at Airgas.com/FABTECH2017.
Registered FABTECH attendees who visit the Airgas exhibit will be entered into daily drawings to win Beats by Dr. Dre™ headphones, Bose® speakers, or a student welding kit.
