Custom-tailored welding system
Flux-cored and solid wires used
The TransSteel 5000 is a custom-tailored welding system designed for use in building ships and oil rigs. The welding programs on the TransSteel Yard are designed for applications where flux-cored and solid wires are preferred, and have been optimised with this in mind. A selection of suitable characteristics, as used in this sector, is stored in the welding system, e.g. the gas-flow regulator in the wirefeeder and a welding-current outlet for using a rod electrode directly. The Yard Edition satisfies the greater need for mobility in shipyards by having a special trolley with integrated crane-hoisting lugs. A specially developed crane attachment point directly on the wirefeeder provides yet more scope for jobsite mobility. A wear-resistant moulded base and a side-mounted impact-proof metal slide make it easier to drag the wirefeeder across the weldment.
