Three Simple Ways to Reduce Energy Consumption in Your Welding Operations
Today's manufacturers face a daunting challenge: running a production line that not only delivers quality product on time and on budget but also meets various demands for energy efficiency and savings. Welding operations in any manufacturing facility are no exception. In fact, welding annually consumes at least $15 million worth of electricity in the United States and about $99 million worldwide.
Manufacturing environments need an energy-efficient, reliable welding program that not only produces quality welds but also saves on operating and electricity costs. If you're ready to boost the overall efficiency and reduce energy requirements of your facility's welding operations, consider following these three, easy steps:
Assess your existing equipment's efficiency
Consider switching to inverter technology
Closely track shop floor production and efficiency

How I Did It Project: Wheelchair Ramp
Submitted by: Jimmie Shasteen, Training Director - Colorado Statewide Ironworkers Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee
Recently, a family in Pueblo, Colorado was in need of a replacement wheelchair ramp and landing for their home. The family contacted various agencies for help with getting their dilapidated ramp replaced, but no assistance was available.
One of the family members contacted some Local No. 24 Ironworkers from the Southern Colorado area for help with the project. Nine Journeyman Ironworkers answered the call.
We constructed one 4 ft. x 8 ft. ramp and one 8 ft. x 8 ft. landing complete with hand rail and mid rail using a Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak® 100 wire feeder welder (currently model is Easy-Core™ 125
) and Innershield® NR®-211-MP self-shielded flux-cored wire.
This Saturday project started at 7:00 a.m. and installation was completed by 4:00 p.m. that afternoon. All material and labor was donated by Local No. 24 Ironworkers membership and everyone involved was happy we could help a family in need.
A special thank you to the Union Ironworkers for a job well done.
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
