Distinctive products and technologies
Greatly contributing to reduced costs!
Kobe Steel produces welding materials with high work efficiency for a wide variety of industries, including shipbuilding, structural steel and bridge construction. These materials greatly decrease welding man hours, greatly increase welding efficiency and help create more beautiful bead appearance.
Non-Copper Coated Solid Wires (SE wire series)
Reduced environmental impact!
Produced using a unique wire surface treatment technology, non-copper coated solid wires offer groundbreaking feed capability and outstanding arc stability. These wires also reduce environmental impact, removing the need for copper plating treatment during manufacturing of the welding wire.
Welding Materials for Low-Alloy Steel
Top market share worldwide!
Increasingly sophisticated high-strength and low-alloy, heat-resistant steel is being utilized in recent years in high-temperature, high-pressure applications such as oil refining reactors and thermal power boilers. We have developed welding materials specially designed to meet these needs.
Increased application of robotic welding!
The ARCMAN™ welding robot series is used in a wide range of plate welding fields, such as for structural steel and construction machinery. The GS model features internalized components such as torches and cables, making welding robots more viable in narrow spaces. It also allows for tandem welding.
REGARC™-equipped Structural Steel Welding Systems
Reduced costs and improved quality!
The REGARC™ is a groundbreaking welding process technology that can significantly reduce spatter and fumes, even with a high current, using CO2 arc welding. REGARC™-equipped structural steel welding systems achieve high-efficiency and high-quality welding with low spatter.
