MEGAFIL Welding Wires

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Hobart Brothers Company said it has addressed common industry concerns regarding weld cracking with the introduction of its new seamless flux-cored and metal-cored wires designed to offer resistance to moisture pickup and minimize this defect. The new Hobart MEGAFIL wires also have less than 4ml of diffusible hydrogen per 100g of weldment, which further mitigates cracking risks, Hobart said. Both the flux-cored and metal-cored versions of the MEGAFIL wires feature a copper coating to improve current carrying capabilities. A proprietary manufacturing process adds to the consistency of the MEGAFIL wires by ensuring a uniform flux filling, while the wires’ uniform shape helps minimize contact tip wear. These properties make the wires a good choice for both semiautomatic and robotic welding applications, the manufacturer said. The MEGAFIL wires also offer robust mechanical properties, allowing the welds created with these products to withstand the harshest environments.
