ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has developed a new microsite that will teach MIG welding operators how to increase productivity and weld quality. The microsite explains the benefits of ESAB's popular non-copper coated OK AristoRod MIG wires, which have set the benchmark in European welding markets such as Scandinavia, Germany and France, and are quickly spreading into North America and developing markets such as South America and China.

The microsite details how OK AristoRod wires' Advanced Surface Characteristics (ASC) result in trouble-free, high-productivity welding in robotic, mechanized and manual applications. Included are video animations in 24 languages, high-speed arc recordings, and scientific data. Visitors to the site can access detailed information for the comprehensive range of wires for welding non-alloyed and low-alloyed steels.

Provided are additional details about Marathon Pac bulk wire drums and ESAB's SATTM (Swift Arc Transfer) process that delivers very high productivity. Many of the OK AristoRod wires are available in the environmentally friendly Marathon Pac bulk wire drums, and there is a broad range of accessories to aid handling and installation. For robotic and other highly mechanized welding applications, Marathon Pac can substantially reduce the time required for spool changes - or eliminate it altogether when the Endless Marathon Pac is employed.

Swift Arc Transfer (SAT) is an innovative high-speed MIG process for mechanized and robotic welding of fillet welds. It uses ESAB inverter power sources and the Robofeed 3004 wire feeder to achieve wire feed speeds of up to 30m/min. A stable SAT process is enabled by the excellent feeding properties of OK AristoRod. Synergic lines are available for various wire sizes and shielding gases.
