Welding is used in many industries. In tank and container construction, vehicle superstructures, wagon construction, shipyards, and pipeline construction - stable, permanent joints are essential everywhere. And this can only be achieved if the work is done cleanly. Botched seams can have far-reaching consequences and are relevant to safety. The use of quality tools, careful work, and many years of experience are the best basis for approaching joining by welding correctly.
Regardless of the welding process used (TIG, MIG, MAG, plasma, electrodes), welders resort to surface preparation tools when beveling the edge, preparing the weld zone, or cleaning the welding layers.
Welding professionals know their craft and usually do not need to make corrections. In addition to proper technique, cleaning is key to removing slag inclusions between weld beads or spatter before applying the next weld ply. Bond defects, cracks, or overlap? Then it may be necessary to grind out weld ply or level welds.
Not all welded parts have to win a beauty contest. But they do exist - the parts where, in addition to stability, appearance is important in the end. Creating a high-gloss look or a satin feel is the most common machining process.
Osborn's tools cover all the processes that are essential, in addition to the actual welding, to deliver flawless, high-quality welding work.
