Weld Overlay

Established in 1998, Wellclad delivers weld overlay solutions using state-of-the-art technology to its customers, mainly within the oil and gas industry.

Wellclad Invest in SpeedClad® Technology

Wellclad has been delivering CRA weld overlay solutions for 20 years. Continuing their use of  advanced technology, Wellclad have invested £100K in the purchase of two FRONIUS SpeedClad® conversion systems to provide the industry with improved, cost effective solutions. 

                             

How the SpeedClad® Process Works?

The SpeedClad® process uses two tungsten electrodes combined with two welding wires feeding into one coupling arc and weld pool. A stable welding process can be achieved at higher current than that of conventional TIG because of its low arc pressure driving higher efficiency welding with greatly improved consumable deposition rates.

For  diameters greater than 6" / 152mm the SpeedClad® process can reduce weld process labour times by 30%

Our Investment in SpeedClad®

As dimensional cladding requirements increase, Wellclad have recognised the need to invest in this technology  in order to provide their customers with increased productivity rates enabling the delivery of cost reduction solutions.

"This investment has been positively received by our current customers.  It  provides them with commercial benefits which in turn has allowed them to be successfully competitive in their respective markets." - George Leggate, Managing Director.
