The Built Up Edge (BUE) condition can occur any time a bit rotates with enough speed and friction to fuse material to the bit edge. BUE has negative effects on the quality of the cut such as excessive work hardening, poor surface finishes, and a reduction in the dimensional control of the process due to the BUE dynamically changing the geometry of the cutting tool.
Orbital Welding That is Engineered for Versatility
The AdaptARC automated welding machines offer the most advanced orbital and linear pipe welding systems for the professional welder. Designed for durability and versatility, the AdaptARC system offers multiple processes for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding pulsed spray (GMAW-P) and short arc (GMAW-S), and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW).
