Thanks to the generosity of Arc Specialties, the Nickel Alloy Research Team is utilizing a fully
automated GTAW welder with four-dimensional programmable controls. In combination with the
Atmospheric Control Chamber, this set-up enables a high degree of process control.
The Atmospheric Control Chamber (ACC) was designed and built by the team to allow for precise control of both active shielding gasses and also the surroundingatmosphere. The ACC is built with a darkened glass shield on the front to allow for viewing from the front and is equipped with a completely removable front door for ease of access. A filtration system is also mounted on top to ensure atmospheric quality.
