Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) is offering a range of trailing shields to fit any make of TIG (GTAW), MIG or plasma (PAW) welding torch for manual or automatic welding.

For most stainless steel and titanium welding applications, oxidation and discolouration must be prevented from forming on or next to the weld.

To give additional argon-gas shield-coverage during welding, a ‘trailing shield’ can be fitted to the welding torch, ensuring the hot weld zone is shielded with argon for longer than if it were shielded with the torch nozzle gas only.

The extra inert-gas shielding gives time for the metal to cool, below the temperature at which it would oxidise.

The improved shielding produces a brighter, shinier weld without discolouration.

Flat trailing shields are available for the welding of sheet metalwork or plate work.

Radiussed trailing shields are manufactured for every diameter of tube pipe or vessel from 1in upwards.

As well as the popular ones radiussed for outside welding, HFT also manufactures a version for inside welding.

Other trailing shield models are available for robotic welding, for which shields are wider and longer for greater welding speeds than are possible with manual welding.

Additional benefits include reduced gas consumption, faster welding times and removal of the need for a purge enclosure.

Argweld trailing shields can be used for welding stainless steel, duplexes and titanium.
