Gas shielded flux cored wires were developed mainly for welding structural steels and thick materials. They offer higher process reliability than solid wires, have a higher deposition rate and can be used in constrained positions. All of these advantages result in a higher production rate than solid wire or electric hand welding with fewer defects in the weld.
The unique production technology ITW Welding uses to produce MEGAFIL® seamless flux cored wire provides valuable product benefits to the end user. The manufacturing process is divided as follows: Strip is formed into a tube, HF welded and then drawn to the filling diameter. In the next step, the tube is filled with agglomerated powder by means of a vibration system. Then the wire is annealed, drawn to the final diameter and coated with copper. Finally, the wire is precisely wound onto different spool sizes in layers. The result is a completely closed flux cored wire with an extremely dry powder core that does not absorb any moisture during storage and welding.
MEGAFIL® seamless cored wires are available for most steel grades with a wide range of approvals from societies such as ABS, DNV, LR and TÜV. The wire can be ordered with a 3.1 certificate that lists the real values of chemical composition and mechanical properties of the delivered batch.
