An innovative, all-new Welding App will be launched on the Sandvik stand at Tube 2016 specifically designed with on-the-job functionality to meet welding professionals’ requirements when planning and performing welding projects.
Sandvik welding specialists will be on the stand at Tube 2016 to demonstrate the unique features of the App and answer visitors’ questions. From the start of the exhibition, the new Welding App, Sandvik Welding, is available and free to download for phones and tablets from the App store for Apple and Google.play for android devices.
Built with ease of navigation, the new App brings extensive information to hand for welding engineers, welders, specifiers, project engineers and owner operators. Brimming with useful technical data it allows users to plan which grades to choose for which jobs, make ferrite calculations, determine the level of heat input for a specific grade, select filler material and get help.
There is full information on welding parameters, gas shielding, maximum interpass temperatures and post weld treatments. All calculations and recommendations are designed to help operators and planners ensure a good weld metallurgy being achieved in the weldment while maintaining optimum material properties.
“We believe the new Welding App to be the most comprehensive available today, providing welding engineers with a vast amount of informative data and practical functions. All created to meet customers’ welding needs in a handy form right to their phone or tablet,” explained Clemente Tallarico, Sandvik Global Product Manager Welding.
The App was designed following years of experience in helping solve complex project applications and continuous consultation with and feedback from customers. “It is this close cooperation with our customers that helps us ensure that the data presented in the App is as close as possible to the information welding engineers find helpful in their everyday operations,” added Clemente Tallarico.
Complementing the App is the recently launched Sandvik Welding Handbook. A downloadable and web-generated pdf, which is available exclusively online, it contains comprehensive product information and data sheets. As soon as new grades or information are added, both the App and the Handbook pdf are automatically updated. The newest version of the pdf can be found at and downloaded from: http://smt.sandvik.com/welding-handbook
Already planned for subsequent versions of the App is the possibility to make calculations for consumable consumption and select the most suitable weld overlay cladding solution from Sandvik’s extensive welding consumable portfolio.
