New! Welding Blankets and
Welding blankets and curtains were recently added to the Radius™ Welding Tools product
All are designed to protect components
parts, flooring or nearby equipment from heat and spatter by safely confining welding sparks
and grind particulate.
Rockstar Performance Garage -
Every rock star needs a cool set of
wheels - making the partnership between Rockstar Energy Drinks and custom builder Nicholas
Ashby a perfect one. Working together to launch the first ever lifestyle-brand-owned
performance garage, Rockstar and Ashby have created a fully functioning shop that successfully
bridges the lifestyle and automotive markets.
Officially opened in June 2012,
Rockstar Performance Garage (RPG) works on a range of projects, everything from off road
vehicles to imports to muscle cars, and though it hasn’t been open long, the shop's
cars have already received recognition and awards.
Ashby has been a Lincoln Electric
customer ever since he first picked up a Lincoln Electric plasma cutter while working on
Humvees during his tour in Iraq. His shop is outfitted with a wide variety of Lincoln
Electric equipment and Red Line™ apparel and accessories.
Design Strategies for Mobile
With ever-increasing demand on manufacturers to produce a broad array of high-quality
products that remain competitive in the marketplace, the need to automate production processes
has never been greater. Short product lifecycles coupled with diverse product portfolios
creates a high product-mix, low-volume scenario that is increasingly driving small- and
medium-sized enterprises to invest in robotic automation technologies.
The need to maximize the functionality
of their capital investment means companies are constantly looking for ways to make systems as
flexible as possible. This is often in the form of specially designed tooling and fixturing
that can be changed out between production runs of different products.
The true challenge arises when they
need to move entire robotic cells from one area of a facility to another, or even to another
facility altogether, to keep pace with the demands of an ever-changing production
Are Tactile Seam Tracking
Systems Right for You?
In the last few years, many manufacturers once again have become aware of the
advantages of using seam tracking systems. For companies to stay competitive in today's
market, production facilities must become lean and efficient. Tactile seam tracking systems
help manufacturers achieve this goal with a relatively small capital investment. Companies in
countries that have historically added more labor to a particular welding project, in hopes of
meeting required production rates, also have realized the benefits tactile seam tracking
Welding Project: Build
Your Own Welding Table
A steel welding table is a basic necessity for any
welder's workspace, since welding on a wooden surface can present a very real fire hazard.
In addition, with a steel table, the welder's work clamp can be attached to it, and parts
placed on the table will be electrically connected with the table's surface. This provides
the advantage of keeping the work clamp and its cable out of your way while welding.
Finally, building your own welding
table will allow you to stand upright and place smaller projects at the right height for
Iron Man 3 'Made
Lincoln Electric Equipment
Superhero inventor Iron Man is off on
his latest adventure – with Lincoln Electric equipment by his side. Released on May 3,
the hit Marvel comics-inspired film -- Iron Man 3 -- features Lincoln Electric welding
equipment, used by actor Robert Downey Jr.'s character, engineering genius Tony Stark/Iron
Man, to fabricate his signature armored suit, various tools and weapons as he prepares to fight
the villain Mandarin. Look for Lincoln Electric POWER MIG® welders in Tony's
Stark's high tech workshop.
Grossing more than $175 million in its
opening weekend, the film is already a surefire hit, as were the first two films, which also
put Lincoln Electric equipment to highly visible use on-screen.
Craig Coffey, U.S. Marketing
Communications Manager with Lincoln Electric said, "What welding equipment manufacturer
wouldn't want to be associated with Iron Man's workshop? Throughout the movie series,
Tony Stark is presented as a futurist with an eye for the possible, who relies on welding
products - Lincoln Electric welding products - to produce amazing works of technology, just
like many of our customers. THAT is cool."
