PPAW creates a pulsating weld puddle while the liquid weld metal is deposited.
When we saw the benefits of PPAW, they said we needed one for every bench," Jim Scocca, Peninsula Metal plant manager, said.
One of the significant factors in adding more PPAW units was welders' input.
"Implementing PPAW made a huge difference in the quality going out the back door," Eischens said.
Data from Bonal shows PPAW welds have almost 22 percent ductility value, compared to 5.5 percent ductility for welds made without the system.
