FCAW requires a continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant- voltage or, less commonly, a constant- current welding power supply. An externally supplied shielding gas is sometimes used, but often the flux itself is relied upon to generate the necessary protection from the atmosphere, producing both gaseous protection and liquid slag protecting the weld. The process is widely used in construction because of its high welding speed and portability. One type of FCAW requires no shielding gas.

The new liberalization policies of The Government of India have marked a steady growth of the Indian economy. This situation will continue for the next years to come. The increased spending on infrastructure projects has resulted in higher demand for various related products and faster growth rate of manufacturing sector as well.
The high growth rate in the manufacturing sector is also the result of improved production efficiencies by adopting more efficient technologies and pruning the production costs. The improved efficiency is due to more automated production techniques adopted by the manufacturing sector thus making them globally competitive.
The growth in manufacturing sector results in growth in consumption of steel and steel products. Welding is a critical requirement in the manufacture and fabrication of any engineered product, machine or consumer durable and the ability to produce adequate welding consumables is essential for the industrial self- reliance and development of a country.
A wide range of welding consumables are required to cater to the exacting requirements in each engineering industry. This also results in growth in welding consumables requirement. As a result all the leading welding consumables manufacturers in the country are on expansion mode. In view of achieving higher efficiency, and cost effectiveness, manufacturing sector is swiftly replacing the conventional manual welding process with semi-automated or automated welding techniques, such as Flux cored systems.
In India, there is a great potential for Flux cored wire electrodes and special purpose welding electrodes. Project The proposed project is mainly aimed at creating facilities for manufacturing welding electrodes with the state-of-the-art technology and machinery.
XYZ is mainly contemplating three lines of activities. They are: Manufacture of: a. Special purpose Metal arc stick electrodes Low alloy mild steel, Hard facing and stainless steel German formulations These facilities will cater to the domestic and export markets.
Constitution Private Limited Company. Date of Incorporation The company name approval obtained and incorporated is under process under the Companies Act, Location Registered and Administrative office Manufacturing facilities As a result of this there is a rising demand for various grades of steel in the country.
This in turn is raising the demand for steel fabrication. Steel fabrication in turn depends upon the welding consumables for quality welding. There is a rising demand for welding consumables in India and other developing countries. In the Middle East like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Dubai various new infrastructure projects are coming up and the demand for welding consumables is increasing. The demand growth is 4.
Hence in addition to domestic demand, there is good export potential for welding consumables at competitive prices to Middle East, African countries, South America etc.
This has encouraged the promoters of XYZ to manufacture welding consumables mainly for domestic markets and partly for exports. The proposed company XYZ will have three divisions viz. This conscious decision has been taken based on concessional import duty available based on export commitment.
Promoters and Management Markets Economic development of any country depends upon its Infrastructure. Next to China, India is having fast infrastructural growth. Indian Government is implementing various infrastructure projects with private partnership.
In the infrastructure projects, highest priorities are given for setting up of new steel, cement and power plants, building of new roads, expansion of railways, developing ports, and increasing refining capacities and so on.
Welding plays an important role in any manufacturing and infrastructure sectors. Indian Welding Industry is supplying all types of welding consumables, for SMAW process, semi-automatic or automatic process.
Welding is a process used in almost all Engineering industries. In India, there is a boom in welding related businesses like Manufacture of capital Goods, welding equipment and welding consumables etc. This trend will continue for the coming years in India due to massive investments in infrastructure projects and general boom in manufacturing sector. In the organized sector, very few welding consumables manufacturers are there in India.
The automation sector is also gaining popularity in the country due to operational efficiency and cost reduction programs undertaken by most of the manufacturing companies.
There is an increased use of automation, and awareness of product quality. The number of Gas pipeline projects and Railway projects, announced by the Government of India, coupled with switching over to FCW process by leading Equipment manufacturers in the Power and Oil sector is expected to boost the demand for specialized welding consumables.
India Imports special welding consumables in substantial quantities. There are more than welding consumable manufacturers in the country out of which about 10 are either Big or medium scale mainly manufacture normal mild steel types mostly for general and low grade fabrication purpose and supply against local territorial requirements.
Total consumption of welding consumables in the country is as under: S. The future of welding industry is very bright. The annual rate of growth is 7. The highlights of segmental growth can be summarized as follows — 7. Steel consumption is the reliable indicator of welding consumables. The demand for welding consumables also will double in the same period.
Worldwide market The average world consumption is about 50, tons a month and increasing steadily year on year, and the main exporters to other markets are China, Taiwan and Korea. The product quality and price is the major factor.
All over the world, the shipping industry adapts the FCW process. The same method is 8. Indian Scenario There are four main players in India. These companies have got about tons per month capacity each and most of them import large quantities and they do repacking in their own brand. The demand pattern in India is as follows: a Railways - They have standardized a lot of products.
Wagon building and other rolling stock manufacturing. Cement mills, sugar mills, construction industries are the main users of repair and maintenance. The approximate demand in India considering the major users in India is about tons of products per month which consists of joining and hard facing wires. The present manufacturing capacity is only about tons per month.
The balance requirements are met by imports. This project shall add another 9. So India is the destination for cheap imports from China in local brand names. But off late the Chinese products have also become very expensive due to capacity constraints. Marketing and Selling Arrangements Hence, they are planning to market the products in these countries aggressively. The domestic market in India is also increasing continuously due to Economic growth and Infrastructure boom.

flux core wire manufacturing machine
Yoder is a supplier of tooling and equipment, understanding the unique requirements of each application. Flux cored wire is produced with either a lap or butt seam, to retain the flux material within the tube. Powdered flux is metered into the roll forming process, after which the tube is drawn down to the final wire diameter and recoiled, typically at speeds ranging from to FPM. Yoder provides roll forming machinery and tooling that is integrated to the FCW production system. Recently, Yoder has partnered with Lamnea Bruk, Sweden , to supply the roll forming equipment and form tooling which is integrated to their FCW Production system.
The arc is struck between a continuously fed consumable filler wire and the workpiece, melting both the filler wire and the workpiece in the immediate vicinity. The entire arc area is covered by a shielding gas , which protects the molten weld pool from the atmosphere. FCAW is a highly productive process for a range of plain carbon, alloy, stainless and duplex steels. It can also be used for surfacing and hardfacing. It offers more flexibility with alloy compositions than MIG, for instance. It also typically enables higher wire deposition rates and greater arc stability although the process efficiency of MIG is usually superior. Gas-shielded operation where a shielding gas is supplied from an external source, such as a gas cylinder.
The site provides the weld information and data required to attain the highest possible manual and automated weld quality, always at the lowest possible weld costs. This web site was first established in by Ed Craig. Contact Ed. Flux Cored Data Pipe and Plate. When using the flux cored FCAW weld consumables recommended at this site, and those weld consumables are correctly applied, the flux cored weld slag should fall off during and after the weld. If the weld slag does not fall off, it should take only a few seconds to remove. A positive point in pipe welding is the removal of the weld slag gives the welder an opportunity to examine the weld between passes.
Flux-cored arc welding
The fabrication of a Flux Cored Electrode begins by slitting steel coiled sheet into strips. The strips are passed through rollers that form it into a U-shaped cross-section. In the same operation, the formed strip is filled with a measured amount of core ingredients. The U-shaped strip is passed through closing rolls, forming it into a tube and tightly compressing the granular core material.
Note : The above image is shown for reference only. The actual machine may appear different but the performance criteria will remain the same. This long strip is passed through rollers that form it into a U-shaped cross-section. During the same time, the formed strip is filled with a measured amount of Pre-mixed Flux minerals. The U-shaped strip is now passed through closing rolls, forming it into a tube and tightly compressing the granular core material. The tube is then passed through drawing dies that reduce the diameter and compress the core ingredients to prevent any movement within the tube. These machines are built on a very strong base that the life is enhanced. These machines provide trouble free service for many years, with proper preventive maintenance :.
Published on December 12, November 25, The flux, which is contained within the core of the tubular electrode, melts during welding and shields the weld pool from the atmosphere. The difference in the two is due to different fluxing agents in the consumables, which provide different benefits to the user. Usually, self-shielded FCAW is used in outdoor conditions where wind would blow away a shielding gas. The fluxing agents in self shielded FCAW are designed to not only deoxidize the weld pool but also to allow for shielding of the weld pool and metal droplets from the atmosphere.

Bellini , S. In these first 60 years, the flux-cored wire has lived a progressive rise of interest and use, motivated by its unique characteristics of weldability under operational conditions, high efficiency and flexibility and user-friendly application. Bellini 1 , S. T oday flux-cored wires can be classified by typology, wires of rutile, basic and metal-cored typology, or by productive technology, strip wires or folded or tubular or seamless wires. Concerning the classification by wire typology, the rutile-type wire is insuperable in applications under operational conditions for instance in upright or overhead position and it is highly appreciated for its high versatility and user friendliness; the metal-cored wire is mainly used to replace the solid wire and it is appreciated for its higher deposit levels whereas the basic wire is preferred in applications where are required high technical and mechanical performances, mainly with medium-high alloy steels. Referring instead to productive technologies, as we are going to explain more in detail in this article, the folded wire is essentially preferred for its weldability specifications whereas the seamless wire for the impermeability and the superior sliding. This short survey is aimed at tracing back briefly the history of the flux-cored wire since its origins until now, highlighting the reasons for its success in the market of welding consumables. The main typologies of product and process are described also introducing the characteristics of the new laser-sealed processes and highlighting the peculiarities of this new product typology. The first official witness regarding the devising of what is, under all respects, the evolution of the coated electrode welding dates back to , year when the American inventor Arthur Bernard obtained by the Patent Office of the United States the acknowledgement of an innovative composite welding electrode. Such patent, successively assigned to the National Cylinder Gas Company, with headquarters in Delaware, USA, is based on the implementation of a composite electrode for continuous welding obtained starting from a metal strip.

Его паства верила в него, и эта вера многое добавила к его силе. Но, разумеется, все эти чудеса имели простое объяснение -- если они вообще происходили. Мне представляется удивительным, что люди, во всех остальных отношениях вполне разумные, позволяли надувать себя подобным образом.
Удивился Олвин. -- Я уверен, что для обоих наших народов будет только хорошо, если они снова смогут встретиться и начать сосуществовать. Сирэйнис, казалось, была чем-то недовольна: -- Мы так не считаем. Стоит только воротам раствориться, как нашу землю наводнят праздные, любопытствующие искатели сенсаций.
