Productivity


Keeping your fleet moving and ratcheting up productivity to meet demand are formidable challenges.

 

You need to keep your fleet on the road—while also being able to quickly expand it. You may think there’s no way a single supplier could help you overcome both of these challenges, but one trusted supplier has just what you’re looking for to reduce supply-chain complexity and help you improve productivity.

 

Build more using less

We know what it takes to accommodate productivity demands related to new production and fleet maintenance.

As one of the nation's leading single-source suppliers of all things gases, welding and safety, we provide expert local service backed by the strength of national resources. You can count on our depth and breadth of products and services to help you meet boom-time productivity demands and exceed existing fleet needs.

 

Don’t let your welding operation cost you

Close any skills gaps that are preventing your workforce from operating at its best. When welding proficiency impacts quality, cost and safety, you can’t afford not to take a closer look.

At Airgas, we tie hard metrics to improvements in your welding processes that quantify the impact of our decades of experience in the welding industry. We can help you increase arc-on times while matching the right products with the right application. Operating budgets drop as gas usage decreases and jobs are finished with a greater expediency and proficiency.

It’s another way to help you incorporate efficiency and productivity enhancements into your processes.

Using proven methods and tools for evaluating welding processes, we’ll show you how to become more efficient and reduce costs. Evaluations cover:

  • Weld size
  • Joint design and fit-up
  • Deposition rate
  • Weld reject rate and rework
  • Operating factors
  • Work cell efficiency
  • Weld quality and appearance
  • Gas management control
  • Gas mix composition
  • Gas package and distribution
  • Process selection and procedures

Rely on experience

In your industry, experienced productivity partners know better outcomes begin with improving processes and implementing best practices across their entire organization—including welding, procurements, inventory management and safety.
