Red-D-Arc staff at the Moncton, New Brunswick branch recently helped a customer save time and money repairing the world’s largest rock crusher through the use of induction heat. The hydraulic cylinder that operates the pressure plates used by the enormous rock crusher needed to be brought to a temperature of 500 °F and that temperature needed to be maintained for 3 full days. This was required in order to allow welders to repair the lifting tabs on the cylinder. Normally 3 workers would have used blow torches to heat the metal which would have taken 2 weeks or longer. The Red-D-Arc Induction Heating System allowed them to get the job done in less than half the time. Induction heating has many applications in construction, shipbuilding, hydro dam maintenance and bridge building. Red-D-Arc technicians are recognized in the industry for their innovative application of this technology, ready to meet any variety of customer challenges.

A Red-D-Arc customer in Atlanta wanted to increase their capabilities in cutting and fabrication of lighter gauge mild steel (up to 2″ thick) using plasma. With the help of the Red-D-Arc Weld Automation – Cutting Services group they decided to expand their existing cutting rail system and added a brand new Koike MasterGraph Extreme Cutting Machine with Hypertherm’s HPR400xd High Definition Plasma power supply. This dramatically increased their cutting capacity and quality, lowering their overall cost of production for cutting mild steel.

Note:  Red-D-Arc cutting services is moving to Airgas sometime in 2017.  Details will be available here.

The Red-D-Arc Cutting Services team supplied a complete install including operator training.
