ESAB Welding & Cutting Products recently updated its Quick Weld Productivity Analyzer, which is an easy-to-use calculator for total weld cost analysis.
The analyzer tool, available at esab.com/esab-qwpa, also allows users to generate a PDF report, which includes a QR Code they can scan with a mobile phone that takes them back to their original calculation and input variables. Users then can adjust the variables to create alternative calculations and generate a new report.
The updated calculator includes more filler metal selections for the North American market. Globally, improved links from the QWPA only present filler metals and welding equipment that are available in the country of origin, ESAB said.
