Mining Industry Welding Solutions

Finland-based Kemppi produces industrial arc welding equipment and solutions for the mining industry. Kemppi is an innovative player in the market when it comes to the advancement of welding technology and productive welding solutions.

Arc welding solutions

Arc welding is an important process in mining industry production due to the fact that it is not only safe but operates in the long-term, which means that even with constant welding the quality does not decrease for metal products and structures.

Kemppi offers advanced products that include pulsed and modified metal inert gas / metal active gas (MIG/MAG) welding, sophisticated tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, site manual metal arc welding (MMA), welding production planning and quality management.

A welding coordinator receives on-line deviation reports.

The smart reader device checks whether a welder's qualifications are up-to-date compared with the WPS.
SuperSnake is an excellent solution whenever an extra-long reach welding application is required.
Wise ensures constant penetration despite changes in stick out length.

Kemppi caters for a wide range of mining welding requirements and allows users to choose the ideal solutions, according to individual applications. Mining welders can therefore achieve their aims with ease, while also improving output and overall quality of the job at hand.

MIG/MAG welding equipment

Kemppi’s FastMig range is for the MIG/MAG welding of heavy and medium metals. FastMig is modular, allowing the construction of different welding configurations by varying power source, wire feed and panel options.

When using FastMig, you are in control and can set new standards for customer choice via the unique software architecture, which allows standard or tailored packages to suit your specific welding environment.

FastMig uses the Wise arc process, which improves competence and technique when it comes to mining welding performance. Wise products enable new levels of welding performance that would not be achievable with the standard MIG/MAG welding process in applications ranging from thin sheets to heavy structures.

Magnetic carriage unit for MIG/MAG welding

MagTrac F 61 is a magnetic carriage unit for MIG/MAG welding mechanisation, which is similar to a regular welding machine in terms of operations, so it does not require special training or expertise. MagTrac F 61 does not require auxiliary control cables or transformers, due to the fact that it is all completely integrated into the same cable.

Push-pull subfeeder

SuperSnake GT02S MIG/MAG subfeeders offer 30m more reach than regular MIG/MAG welding. The product is ideal for the mining industry as it connects with standard Euro MIG welding guns, including the Kemppi WeldSnake range, increasing gun reach by up to 30m from the wire feed cabinet.

Welding quality management

Arc System 2.0 module ArcQuality connects the quality and productivity of welding production. ArcQuality ensures that the welding process is carried out in accordance with any specific conditions.

ArcQuality also means that welders are qualified to perform the tasks they are assigned, while possible deviations are reported automatically and in real time. The system can also be used in maintenance operations, where the smart reader compiles quality data even for weld-specific traceability.

ArcQuality suits producers that work according to the ISO 3834, NORSOK, ASME and EN 1090 manufacturing standards.
