Yestoday brings the beginning of the All-position Automatic Welding Competition for Pipeline at Langfang, Hebei, China. It’s the opening contest of 2019 Arc Cup International Welding Competition and also an important Competition project of china selection competition for 2019 BRICS Skills Challenge, which is aim to build an international cooperation platform, speed up the training of the welding talents, promote and strengthen the technical welding level.
564 welders from 11 countries participated in the Competition, such as Russia, Vietnam, Iran and Indian.
The competitors need finished the welding of the pipeline in 80 minutes. The competition project include 2 parts, one is all-position automatic welding for pipeline, the other is process programming. The detail are as below:
1.All-position automatic welding for pipeline
(1) Test piece description: pipe butt joint welds with V-shape groove;
(2) Size: Φ530×10×1000mm pipe fittings;
(3) Material: X52 pipeline steel;
(4) Welding process: automatic gas shielded flux cored arc welding in upward position.
2. Process programming
The setting of procedure parameters includes wire feeding speed, welding voltage, swing frequency, swing width, zoning angle, gas flow and so on.
Xionggu is the only official flag provider of the automatic pipeline welding machine .We wish a big success for All-position Automatic Welding Competition and all the competitor a good performance.
