Metal Casting Technologies : June 2006
ABB Robotic MIG/MAG welding ABB has announced a rapidly delivered robotic MIG/ MAG welding package for general industrial applications which contains all the standard components for robot automated arc welding of steel. The IRB 1410 ArcPack is a standard package for arc welding of steel with mixed gas and solid wires, suitable for general industrial applications. It is intended for one- robot cells, small and medium sized batches in single or double-shift operations. The ArcPack comes with ABB's IRC5 Single Cabinet controller, and is prepared for drive of one external axis at a time - providing adequate station interchange times for general industrial applications.

AlphaTEC represents the new generation in chemical handling protection with new levels of comfort, flexibility, and outstanding grip performance. Using a patent pending manufacturing process, AGT means that less force is required to grip oily or wet objects. This innovative technological breakthrough gives workers the grip, control and confidence to get the job done safely. AlphaTEC's unique production process ensures an exceptionally safe chemical barrier. AlphaTEC's polymer coating does not penetrate into the liner during the dipping process and therefore provides a polymer shell of consistent thickness, meaning better protection for the skin. AlphaTEC provides excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals, in particular to hydrocarbon-based chemicals, oils and solvents.
