Armco And Oerlikon Sign Joint Manufacturing/ Marketing Agreement

Dr. John Garland, executive vice president of Oerlikon Welding Industries, has announced the finalization of an agreement with Armco Steel to market the seven grades of submerged arc welding wire produced by their Union Wire Rope Division. In a meeting with Dr. Garland, Union Wire Rope's general manager David C.

Wineland said this agreement is particularly advantageous for the user since the fluxes produced by Oerlikon complement the benefits of the wire. A one-source supply of the correct wire and flux for a wide range of submerged arc welding requirements is now assured.

All of Armco's seven grades of wire (W-ll, W-15, W-18, W-19, W-22, W-24 and W-25) have gained wide acceptance throughout the industry for the fabrication of alloy plates, pipe, castings and forgings requiring high strength/low temperature toughness. All have AWS classifications, one has U.S. Navy approval as a Qualified Product, and those designed for marine applications have American Bureau of Shipping listings.

Under the Oerlikon/Armco label, the seven wires will be marketed exclusively by Oerlikon and their authorized distributors, together with the complete line of Oerlikon electrodes, fluxes, wires, and strip cladding electrodes. Oerlikon Welding Industries opened their new headquarters/ manufacturing facilities in Houston on April 1,1982, to better serve their customers and their distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Full literature on the complete line of Oerli- kon/Armco welding wire is available at no cost.
