Norwegian industrial giant Kvaerner Stord has been testing the Omega Yard, a compact welding machine designed for heavy-duty usage in tough environments. And this is precisely what the Omega Yard is exposed to at Kvaerner Stord.
The Omega Yard ensures better penetration into the material and prevents lack of fusion when you weld using high amperages. ”The Omega Yard demonstrates a significant difference between a compact welding machine performing 250 amps and the Omega Yard performing 300 amps”, says Oddvar Schei, welder and planner at Kvaerner Stord. ”When you can weld for an hour using approx. 300 amps without any changes in the weld pool and the spray arc remains spray arc, you get better penetration and avoid lack of fusion”, he adds. The 50 amps are what make the difference.
