Shipbuilding

Welding solutions specifically tailored for the high productivity requirements of the shipbuilding industry.

Welding solutions specifically tailored for the high productivity requirements of the shipbuilding industry. Constant innovation and product development able to develop and supply welding consumables and processes reaching the stringent mechanical property specifications and enhanced welding productivity.

Oerlikon has a total commitment to quality. Product ranges are manufactured in group production facilities, all of which are ISO certified. Detailed certification for welding
consumables is supplied as a matter of routine and customers special quality requirements for increased frequency of batch testing or specialised certification are also readily fulfilled.

FLUXOFIL flux and metal cored wires are manufactured using seamless tube which is precision filled with the powder core using pharmaceutical manufacturing technology.

CITOFLUX cored wires are manufactured using the folded strip technique. This range of gas shielded wires includes rutile, basic and metal cored wires, bringing another balance of operating characteristics, mechanical properties and deposition rate to the OERLIKON range of cored wires, to meet all fabrication requirements. CITOFLUX rutile cored wires feature enhanced filling of the flux core, which results in increased current carrying capacity, thus increasing welding speed and hence deposition rate.

KERALINE Ceramic Backing
Welding root runs on ceramic backing is a technique mainly used when single sided welding with MIG solid wire and cored wires. The root is deposited directly onto the ceramic backing and requires no gouging, grinding or post weld dressing.
