ICE™


Less distortion from lowered heat input

Reduced post-weld heat treatment for heat-input-sensitive applications
The increased deposition rate achieved by ICE™ technology, together with the stabilizing effect enables faster welding and  lower heat input compared to twin and single wire setups.

When setting the ICE™ technology to same level of productivity as conventional methods and welding faster, heat input will be lowered. Lowered heat input means less distortion - a great benefit when welding thin plates and parent material that is sensitive to high heat input.

This is a major advantage in applications such as shipbuilding, where limiting heat input is a key factor in minimizing distortion, eliminating time-consuming post-weld processes and costly heat treatment.

Less time to correct Interpass temperature from lowered heat input
In multiple run welding, waiting time is often needed to achieve the acceptable interpass temperature. Using ICE™ technology to lower the heat input reduces - and in some cases eliminates - the waiting time needed to achieve the acceptable interpass temperature.
