ESAB Adds New Manufacturing Lines to Ohio Plant

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has added two new wire drawing lines at its Ashtabula, Ohio, manufacturing facility to produce wire for high production submerged arc welding (SAW) applications. This addition will significantly increase ESAB’s SAW wire capacity, the company says.

The new lines will descale, clean and draw the wire to the proper diameter, coat it with copper and package the product. The wire from the new lines will be used in coil and drum packages, including ESAB’s newest package, the 2200-lb. EcoCoil. The new lines will also produce wire with a cleaner and more consistent surface.

Dan Gerbec, ESAB’s product manager for submerged arc consumables, said that the new manufacturing capabilities will increase ESAB’s productivity and allow the company to better serve its customers with faster delivery and more consistent product.
