Money-saving tips for welding operations at NMW09

Lincoln Electric will focus on a program designed to help big and small welding operations dramatically cut their costs on Stand 4712 during National Manufacturing Week at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from May 12 to 15.

The company will also display its latest robotic welding and profile cutting equipment.

Its Documented Cost Reduction (DCR) program analyses all aspects of welding operations, with the goal of saving businesses costs now as well as compounding these savings over the years. It is available free to customers (although conditions apply).

The program examines factors such as wire feed speed, travel speed and transfer mode to see if welding processes can be enhanced.

It also looks at alternative processes that can deliver significant cost savings and encompasses strategies to reduce clean-up time and downtime.

Other facets of the program are designed to reduce consumable and energy consumption and see if changes in weld design can reduce welding costs.

The Lincoln Electric NMW stand will feature interactive presentations about the DCR program. Technical representatives and welding engineers will also be on hand to discuss and explain its cost-reduction strategies.

The program incorporates an on-site evaluation and consultation with an organisation’s key staff with cost reduction strategies and annual savings figures presented in a report.
