Climax Expands Welding Product Line

(Press Release)
Friday, May 11, 2012

Global engineering services and tool manufacturer Climax Portable Machine Tools is dramatically expanding its welding and cladding product offering with the introduction of additional automated welding and cladding systems. The AutoBoreWelders and AutoClad systems were developed by Bortech Corporation, a leader in automated welding equipment, who recently was acquired by Climax.
 

Climax is also changing its name to Climax Portable Machining and Welding Systems to better reflect its full product and service offerings, and has redesigned its website to streamline navigation and provide a richer content experience to its users. The name change and the expanded welding product offerings are all part of the company’s ongoing strategic plan to grow its business worldwide by offering its customers not only the most advanced and powerful portable machine tools, but also the best automated welding products on the market used for in-situ repair and maintenance of heavy equipment. Portable machining tools and automated welding and cladding systems are used extensively by industry-leading organizations throughout the mining and heavy construction, field service, power-generation, shipbuilding and ship repair industries.
 
“Recognizing that customers regularly use both welding and portable machine technologies in their repair and maintenance projects as well as in their manufacturing and fabrication processes, we have a significant opportunity to help them be more productive and greatly expand the kinds of projects they can do in situ with the right combination of technologies and techniques,” said Geoff Gilmore. “By joining forces with Bortech, we are poised to help customers re-imagine how these tools can be used separately and in combination to save time and costs on the job and to grow their business.”


The automated welding systems are designed to attach directly to several of Climax' boring machine mounting fixtures, allowing a single setup for both welding and machining operations. These automated welders offer high-quality performance for bore, flange and valve repair, and dramatically decrease weld time while producing precise, uniform, high-quality welds as compared to hand welding techniques. Climax’s line of cladding systems apply the highest quality clad overlay alloy such as Inconel™, Hastelloy™, Monel™, or stainless steel to equipment including pipes, pressure vessels, mud pumps and other systems that require protection against corrosion.
 
The company’s full line of portable boring machines, flange facers, valve repair, milling machines and welding systems are available for sale or rent worldwide. In the past two years Climax opened several new sales and rental depots not only in North America, but also in England, Poland, and Australia to respond more quickly to growing demand for its product and in preparation for anticipated need for these tools in emerging markets in Asia and Europe.
