Highlights of FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show 2009



The Harris Products Group launched several new products at FABTECH this year, with a focus on innovative products for the cost conscious consumer and for the distributor who is trying to minimize inventory investment. Harris is a Lincoln Electric Company division specializing in oxy-acetylene gas cutting and welding products.

One of the products the Company introduced is Ironferno. Ironferno is an iron powder torch system utilized to cut stainless steel. It offers a lower cost solution to plasma cutting and a maintenance and repair point of purchase program. Features of the product include its 242 volt economical acetylene straight cutting torch, and smaller packaging in one pound tubes, as opposed to the standard ten pound tubes typically offered at distributors. For more information about Harris products visit www.harrisproductsgroup.com


Matheson Tri-Gas joined FABTECH for the first time this year in recognition of their greatly increased interest in welding, cutting, and fabrication. At the show, they introduced a new series of NANOCHEM® WeldAssure ™ gas purifiers. Impurities present in gas cylinders can affect weld quality; the purifiers provide purge and shield gas purification for welding applications. NANOCHEM OMX and In2Go™ media react chemically and irreversibly with these impurities to deliver consistently pure gas to the weld site, improving weld quality. The NANOCHEM OMX resin also offers efficient removal of hydrocarbons in the gas. NANOCHEM In2Go inorganic media prevents piping system contamination in the event of a major system upset. NANOCHEM MSA™ is specifically designed to purify argon mixes, and other O2, or CO2 blends. NANOCHEM Weld Assure purifiers are an economical solution for MIG and TIG welding with canister features including a 300mL stainless refillable canister, an easy-touse bypass mode for canister changes, multiple capacity options (150 mL, 300 mL, and 500 ML), as well as field replaceable canisters. The purifiers provide a cleaner, more efficient design ideal for many applications in aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, petroleum drilling, ship-building, and other manufacturing industries. For more information on these products email [email protected] or visit www.matheson-trigas.com
