February 25, 2014

Climax offers the AC5000 AutoClad on-site cladding machine. According to the company, the machine helps manufacturers of processing equipment such as pressure vessels, valves, and flow-control devices get the right weld in the right place, even during difficult welding jobs.

The machine enables high-quality welding with difficult materials such as stainless steel and INCONEL® alloy, the company reports. It is available with options for GMAW and GTAW.

The modular unit rotates the workpiece, not the water-cooled torch. Centralized control helps protect operators from fumes, flash, and heat. It handles weld diameters as small as 1.2 in.
