Faster Pulsed Arc Welding with Lincoln Electric RapidArc

Oct 28, 2014

Lincoln Electric has produced a technology called RapidArc to help decrease weld spatter. Decreasing the weld spatter can help your robot system travel at faster speeds and increase the overall productivity on your manufacturing line. Rapid Arc also helps enable arc stability at a lower voltage, saving companies time and money on labor and production costs.

Weld spat­ter can be the bane of any manufacturer’s exis­tence. When weld spat­ter builds up along a weld, it takes away from the aes­thet­ic of the work piece, and it has to be ground off, which means the piece takes longer to move along the pro­duc­tion process. By using Lin­coln Elec­tric Rap­i­dArc wave­form con­trol tech­nol­o­gy dur­ing your weld­ing appli­ca­tion, you will get less weld spat­ter and faster trav­el speeds for your weld­ing application.

While low­er weld spat­ter is a key ben­e­fit of invest­ing in LE’s Rap­i­dArc tech­nol­o­gy, it is def­i­nite­ly not the only ben­e­fit. As men­tioned above, Rapid Arc allows for arc sta­bil­i­ty at a low­er volt­age dur­ing the weld, accord­ing to Lin­coln Elec­tric. This allows an increase in speed of up to 30 per­cent, decreas­ing cycle times sig­nif­i­cant­ly, and sav­ing com­pa­nies time and mon­ey on labor and pro­duc­tion costs.

The increase in speed, low weld spat­ter, low­er heat input and a supe­ri­or bead pro­file make pulsed weld­ing with Lin­coln Electric’s Rap­i­dArc a great choice for auto­mat­ed steel weld­ing appli­ca­tions. The com­bi­na­tion of low­er heat, tight arc length con­trol and fast fol­low make it the per­fect appli­ca­tion for steel com­po­nents 1.5 – 4mm thick. The LE Rap­i­dArc also has the abil­i­ty to weld thick­er mate­ri­als, up to 12.7mm thick, Lin­coln Elec­tric stated.

Over­all, the Rap­i­dArc by Lin­coln Elec­tric will speed up your pulsed weld­ing appli­ca­tions and improve your weld appear­ance, while also sav­ing you time on post-weld cleanup.
