The article describes application of the welding method described in the preceding abstract in the steelwork department of VEB Metalleichtbau kombinat Werke Cable. This workshop mass-produces mainly welded girders for use in multi-storey buildings. In 1974 it became necessary to develop a system of welding 30-50 mm thick plates in quantity, and it appeared most expedient to unite the advantages of gas-shielded CO2 and submerged-arc welding while utilising an endless-strip electrode. When production began, the plant was operated by two welders and a welding engineer on all three shifts. Once the process had been mastered it became a one-man operation. The new technique results in less excess weld metal and thus in savings in filler materials and the labour of grinding off excess metal. Order from BSRA as No. 49,275.
