Transport and mobile machinery

Print Print
Weld quality and fatigue resistance are central issues for transport and mobile machinery. ESAB engineers select appropriate machine/consumable combinations for dynamically loaded components.

No matter which mode of transport you manufacture - from a bicycle to a high-speed train - its structural integrity will almost certainly depend on welding. The same thing applies to mobile machinery; earth-moving and agricultural equipment is extremely dependent on the reliability of the welded structures. The requirements vary, but ESAB is the only welding system and consumable suppler that is able to comply with all of them. Furthermore, by offering customised welding and cutting systems, ESAB is able to provide integrated solutions for component manufacture and assembly.

The following keywords represent some of our specific areas of expertise within the transport and mobile machinery industry: high-speed cored wires, submerged arc on columns and booms, machine/consumable combinations offering highly fatigue-resistant welds, high strength steel consumables, Friction Stir Welding, the automated MIG welding of aluminium….
