VDM Metals, one of the world’s leading producers of corrosion and high-temperature resistant nickel materials and special stainless steels, will be taking part in this year’s Beijing Essen Welding and Cutting as an exhibitor. The trade fair will take place from 25 to 28 June at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Pudong district, Shanghai, P.R. China. You will find VDM Metals at booth E1521.
VDM Metals will present its product range of welding consumables in numerous alloys and in different forms, complementing a versatile alloy portfolio for sheets and plates. The materials are available as wire electrodes, welding wires, welding rods, core wires and welding strips for weld cladding. “Our materials are used for different applications. As global leader in the production of nickel flat products, we also supply the corresponding filler materials”, says Baojun Li, Managing Director of VDM HPMT China. “We offer our welding consumables in different packaging options like wire on standardized spools, customized spools or different barrel types for automated welding.”
VDM® Alloy 699 XA: Our answer to metal dusting corrosion
During the trade fair, VDM Metals will introduce the recently developed welding wire VDM® FM 699 XA that is suitable to our new metal dusting resistant alloy VDM® Alloy 699 XA. These new materials are used for applications in the petrochemical industries in metal dusting environments – in gases containing hydrogen and carbon monoxide under high temperature and high pressure. The filler material has proved its reliability in joint welding processes.
Welding Technology Center of Excellence
For all questions regarding welding technology and best results for welding processes, VDM disposes of an own technology center. This welding laboratory is equipped with cutting-edge systems and process technologies. “A team of qualified welding metallurgists, welding engineers and welders is available to answer the questions of our customers about welding techniques in complex projects at every step from planning to commissioning of plants and installations”, says Mr. Li. New welding techniques are examined carefully to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness of processing nickel materials and high-alloyed stainless steels. For customers we offer trainings for the application of special welding processes like wallpapering.
In-house production secures high quality
At VDM Metals, the important production steps are performed in-house to ensure reproducible quality and efficient processing. These processes include melting, heat-treatment, rolling and drawing. During the development of new alloys we carefully monitor their weldability to ensure further processing. Furthermore we optimize existing welding materials for different applications and new welding technologies.
The products comply with high quality standards like narrow tolerance fluctuations in alloying elements and in the dimensions. For trouble-free wire transport in automated welding processes cast and helix values are optimized. Our raw stocks are processed for clean and fault-free surfaces and last but not least, all materials are CE-certified.
