About Magnetarc WeldingMagnetarc Welding was developed by KUKA Systems and is a pressure welding process that relies on a magnetically driven arc under shielding gas.
Profiles with walls between 0.7 and 10 mm thick can be joined using this process. Suitable materials are electrically conductive and fusible, such as carbon steel and low-alloy steels, free-cutting steels, cast steel and malleable cast iron. This process is also ideal for joining combinations of these materials.
