Cutting and Welding

Cutting and welding have been an integral part of Messer’s core competence since the company was founded. How do our customers benefit from this today? A gas portfolio and application experience without equal.

Germany: new “old” customer

The Krefeld-based firm Schages, one of the industry’s largest and most flexible contract-cutting companies, is once again a Messer customer, having also been supplied back in the Messer Griesheim days. Since July 2008, Messer has been supplying nitrogen 5.0 for high pressure laser cutting of aluminium and high alloy steels as well as oxygen 3.5 for optimum laser flame cutting.

Messer and Schages have signed a long-term supply contract with an extension option. The contractually specified yearly requirement comes to more than 700,000 cubic metres of liquid nitrogen 5.0 and more than 25,000 cubic metres of liquid oxygen.

Vietnam: wind energy needs gases

Messer Vietnam has signed a contract with the Korean wind turbine manufacturer CS Towers to supply liquid CO2 and oxygen. Vina Halla, too, receives 35 tonnes of liquid oxygen and liquid carbon dioxide a month for the manufacture of wind turbines.

Everywhere: tailor-made products

Oxy-fuel technology processes require fuel gases and oxygen. Depending on the individual task, however, it is necessary to select different parameter settings. Flame straightening, for example, demands a rapid, pinpoint flame with acetylene and oxygen, whereas soldering requires a slower-burning gas such as propane in combination with air. Accordingly, the spectrum of Messer’s fuel gases ranges all the way from A for acetylene to X for xenon. In the field of arc welding technology, gas shielded arc welding, including its variants TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas), Plasma, MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and MAG (Metal Active Gas), assumes a leading role, with the electric arc providing the heat input. The shielding gas not only protects the highly reactive molten metal from the ambient air; it also influences the arc formation, the chemical reaction with the weld pool and the penetration profile in a very specific way. There are a large number of tailor-made products available for a wide range of materials.
