Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is a uniquely safe and consistent welding method first developed in the early 1900’s. During an automated SAW process, a CNC program rotates the part at a specified speed, while controlling the heat and speed of the weld to ensure optimum quality and consistency of the part. As a result, large amounts of metal can be safely deposited in a short amount of time, which makes automated SAW an excellent choice for welding heavy pieces of equipment.
Subarc Welding offers specific advantages that custom fit many different industries. The Submerged Arc welding (SAW) process offers many advantages for productivity, efficiency and operator comfort in many manufacturing and fabrication applications. Subarc Welding would be a great fit for the rail industry due to the unique large-scale welding that is required.
The biggest advantage of Submerged Arc welding is the high deposition rate that can be achieved, which can have a significant impact on productivity and efficiency. Because this process is typically automated to some degree, consistent quality welds are easily achieved. In addition, there is a level of operator comfort and safety added as well, due to the SAW characteristics of low fume and no open arc.
At Allis Roller, much of our machining and manufacturing processes involve the use of computerized equipment operated by one of our skilled technicians, and our application of SAW is no different. Allis Roller’s engineers are experts at innovating and upgrading SAW methods for the benefit of our customers. Each project that comes through our doors is carefully reviewed and the best machines for the job are selected to ensure parts are made accurately and cost efficiently for our customers.
