US navy ship

A Red-D-Arc customer recently won a large naval defense contract that would require a substantial amount of hard automation equipment. This shipbuilding company was able to leverage Red-D-Arc’s Welderlogistics Lease program to acquire new weld automation equipment for the duration of the defense contract. With the help of over 200 pieces of leased equipment now in their fleet, this customer has grown their business considerably, and without the need for large capital expenditure.

Leasing equipment has many advantages for organizations that want to expand their business by bidding on large contracts, without the risk of tying up capital in depreciating equipment.  All leased equipment comes with a full factory warranty for the duration of the contract and will be repaired or replaced without charge in the event of breakdown.

Contact us today to learn more about growing your welding fleet through our leasing program.
We carry a range of welding positioners, column and boom sets, rotators and other weld-automation equipment.

A metal fabrication company located in Charlotte, North Carolina received an order for 300 small I.D. vessels for titanium molds. At the time they were using FCAW and back gouging the inside and outside of the vessels to achieve 100% penetration. On average they were producing 2 vessels per hour with 2 welders.
They reached out to Red-D-Arc to find a faster and more efficient way to produce these vessels. After discussions with Red-D-Arc the fabricator decided to purchase a bespoke submerged arc system.The custom designed system came complete with a small I.D. sub arc welding head mounted on a 9’x9′ column and boom, flux recovery system, NA5R automatic wire feeder, DC600 multi-process welder and 5 ton rotators. The system also included a laser and camera for precise control and monitoring of the submerged arc welding process.
The submerged arc system increased productivity by 250%. They were able to produce 5 cans per hour with half the labor cost. The safety of the work place was also significantly increased for a number of reasons:
• Back gouging was eliminated which in turn reduced the risk of fire
• Rotators replaced manual rotation of the vessels on tables
• Welders no longer had to weld inside the confined space of the vessels
The customer and the Red-D-Arc team were beyond pleased with the results. The customer plans to purchase two more of these systems for future projects.
Submerged arc welding can increase the efficiency and quality of many industrial welding projects regardless of the size or complexity. Red-D-Arc has all the equipment, expertise and experience to provide you with a submerged arc system to fit your needs – available for sale, lease and rent.

A Red-D-Arc customer shared some interesting photos which document the process of extending the legs of a large seabound work platform and also feature several Red-D-Arc rotators. The platform is used for cleanup activities on the seabed and in order to work at greater depths; the legs of the work platform needed to be extended. The massive cylindrical legs were placed on Red-D-Arc rotators and rotated while the cutting and welding processes were carried out. Once the extensions were completed the legs were then returned to the platform.

Growing Line Systems

Red-D-Arc contributed several Growing Line Systems to be used in the production of wind tower foundations for a wind farm in the Adriatic Sea. In addition to the Growing Line Systems, Submerged Arc Welders were supplied along with camera systems that are equipped with a monitor and touch screen for optimal control of functions. Red-D-Arc equipment was used because the foundations must be long and strong to withstand the depth of the Adriatic Sea.
