LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will showcase its range of MAXX™ shielding gases – designed for improved welding safety, quality and productivity – as well as the company's assist gases for high-performance laser cutting at this year's FABTECH show in Las Vegas, Nev., from November 12-14.
Included in the Air Products range of Maxx shielding gases are Ferromaxx™ gases for faster, cleaner welding of carbon steel; Inomaxx™ gases, which provide maximum performance for welding stainless steel; and Alumaxx™ gas, a multi-purpose shielding gas specifically designed for high-quality welding of aluminum and its alloys. In addition, Air Products provides assist gases for high-performance laser cutting in a full range of supply systems that can meet specific pressure and flow requirements.
Air Products provides gases for welding and cutting in traditional bulk supply, as well as its CryoEase® Microbulk Solution, a cost-effective alternative to cylinder supply. Microbulk supply eliminates the need to reorder cylinders or packs, as well as cylinder handling and changeover. With CryoEase Microbulk Solution, gas is always on-tap, gas purity is more consistent, and shielding gas mixtures can be produced on-site.
FABTECH attendees can stop by Booth C3814 to learn how Air Products is helping welders and cutters produce high-quality welds and precision cuts, maximize productivity, increase efficiency, reduce rejects, and improve their working environment. Attendees can also download Air Products' new Gas Converter mobile app, which the company will also highlight at the show. The new app enables users to quickly convert weight and volume measures for industrial gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, hydrogen, helium, and carbon dioxide, as well as LNG/methane.For more information about Air Products' full range of high performance and industry standard gases for high-quality welding and cutting production, call 800-654-4567 or visit www.airproducts.com/industries/metals/metal-fabrication.aspx.
