Industrial gases giant
Air Products and Chemicals
) announced that it will showcase its range of MAXX shielding
gases and assist gases at FABTECH 2013 show, scheduled from Nov
18-21 in Chicago.
MAXX range of gases are specially designed to provide high
performance levels with better weld quality and faster welding
speeds. It provides better metal fabrication results for the
welders with fewer rejects when welding carbon steel, stainless
steel, aluminum, and high-performance alloys. Assist gases, on
the other hand, delivers high-performance laser cutting in a full
range of supply systems that can meet specific pressure and flow
The gases included in the MAXX range of gases are Ferromaxx,
Inomaxx and Alumaxx. Ferromaxx gases are used for faster and
cleaner welding of carbon steel, whereas Inomaxx provides maximum
performance for welding stainless steel. Alumaxx, on the other
hand, is a multi-purpose shielding gas specially designed for
high-quality welding of aluminum and its alloys.
Air Product's welding and cutting gases are supplied in both
traditional bulks for large gas volume requirements and in micro
bulk solutions for smaller gas volume requirements.
Microbulk supply solutions are preferred over cylinder gases
due to its cost-effectiveness. Microbulk is supplied on tap with
more consistency thus eliminating the need to reorder cylinders
or packs along with cylinder handling and changeover. Shielding
gas mixtures can be produced on-site.
Air Products, at FABTECH 2013, will be educating the show
attendees on how welders and cutters can produce high-quality
welds and precision cuts, maximize productivity, increase
efficiency, reduce rejects, and improve working environment.
