Revolutionary SAW technology for enhanced productivity

  • ICE exploits the excess heat generated by the welding process to melt an additional non-powered welding electrode – the Integrated Cold Electrode; this yields significant productivity benefits without increasing heat input
  • Up to 50% higher deposition rate – instead of adding more energy, ICE utilizes the excess heat available to melt more wire, boosting productivity by up to 50%, depending on the application
  • High Deposition Root™ – ICE technology enables the use of tandem welding in root passes for improved penetration and high productivity, eliminating the need for back gouging
  • High Deposition Root and increased deposition rate can increase productivity in applications where welding speed is the key to maximizing productivity
  • Reduced energy consumption – the ICE process enables an increase in deposition rate by up to 50% without adding more energy, combining environmental benefits with significantly reduced energy consumption
  • Innovative Flat Cap Control™ – adjusting the ratio of “cold wire” used for cap runs makes it possible to produce a flatter cap to the weld, increasing fatigue resistance and reducing the need for post weld treatment
  • Reduced flux consumption – complete welding applications with fewer runs resulting in a reduction of flux consumption by up to 20% when welding with a 50% higher deposition rate
  • Pipe Construction
  • Ship/Barge Building
  • Windtower
  • Heavy Fabrication
