Industrial gases, welding equipment, consumables and related products supplier Weld-Cut Equipment is experiencing a growing demand for the Gemini range of welding electrodes and the mild steel metal inert gas (Mig) range of wires.

The range includes the Recman American Welding Society (AWS) ER70S-6 high-quality mild steel Mig wire with several agency approvals, such as the American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas] and Germanischer Lloyd, besides others. Products are also supplied in several wire sizes.

The Recman brand of wires includes 15-kg spools, as well as bulk drums which have been tested and reportedly found to be successful in high production applications. 
The Mig wire range includes the Weld-Cut branded AWS ER70S-6 standard-grade mild steel Mig wire, without agency approvals.

Weld-Cut Equipment national sales 
and marketing manager Sheldon Green says that an analysis of the increased demand in these and other products 
has led to a change in Weld-Cut Equip-ment’s supply chain management pro-cedures. 
The company is currently well stocked to serve its customers’ immediate needs and future orders are already in place, he explains.

It has also had significant success in its sales of Weld-Cut-branded stick and tungsten inert gas (Tig) inverters, which are sold as a complete package including a Tig torch and all the necessary cables.

Weld-Cut Equipment has taken on the agency for welding company Saf-Fro’s range of welding equipment with an eye on consumables and high-end automation as possible additions in the future. Saf-Fro is owned by welding products company Air Liquide Welding.

Green says that the launch of the Saf-Fro range of equipment was slow, having entered the market at the start of the economic slump at the end of 2008. However, sales of this range has now gained momentum with Weld-Cut increasing its orders with Air Liquide Welding to stay ahead of demand.

Some of Weld-Cut Equipment’s popular products have been the Filcord range of compact Mig machines, the plasma cutting range, namely Plasmajet and Prestojet, and certain inverter machines for dc as well as ac/dc Tig applications.

He says that orders have also been received for high-end products with the first Saf-Fro Digiwave fully programmable units to be used in a fit-for-purpose automated application in the building of stainless steel tanks.

Several prospects for fully automated systems, including seam welders, plasma cutting beds and other solutions, are awaiting customer go-ahead.

The company has also been re-evaluated by the South African Bureau of Standards and was successful in maintaining its ISO 9001 certification. 
Following a challenging first quarter this year, with a gradual turnaround felt early in the second quarter, Weld-Cut Equipment reports that it is poised to meet the local welding market’s needs.

Weld-Cut Equipment is a subsidiary of industrial and medical gas company Air Liquide Southern Africa.
