Huntingdon Fusion Techniques has launched a range of flexible inert-gas welding enclosures for the sports and racing car industry.

Suitable for welding small components or large fabrications, the Argweld enclosures are available in a number of sizes ranging from just 1m in diameter.

The sports and racing car industry is using more and more titanium and titanium alloys because of their better strength-to-weight ratios, according to the company.

Titanium and its alloys have to be welded in the absence of air to a higher degree than for steels, which necessitates welding in argon-filled enclosures where practical.

Traditional enclosures have been made of metal and Plexiglas (acrylic), which often leak and have dead spots in which harmful gases can reside and contaminate welds as the heat is applied.

They are expensive to operate, uncomfortable for welders to use and not very practical for small repair tasks or low volumes of welds, according to Huntingdon.

The company claims that the new high-speed Argweld flexible enclosures reduce the operating costs and waiting times, increase operator comfort and improve the technical results.

The new valves ensure speedier gas input and exhaust and a new welding glove layout provides more ergonomic use for the welding personnel.

These are suitable for use with the company’s new Argweld critical weld purge monitor, which comes with an internal pump and computer software to log oxygen content lower than 10 parts per million.
