Smartphone welding application introduced

February 17, 2011

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced what it says is the first smartphone application for welding.

Available for use with iPhone, Blackberry®, and Android™ devices, the Welding Parameters Set-up Guide application helps welders identify the correct parameters for a specific job. The user enters the metal to be welded and the filler metals, and the application determines the appropriate settings for the welding machine.

The free application can be downloaded at
