With the economy still providing mixed signals, Victor Technologies is approaching business with optimism. Our branding
effort is in full swing, and we are enthusiastic about our newest product offerings both in the U.S. and around the globe.
Beginning with the company name change in May of 2012, and following in October with the alignment of our cutting
brands under the Victor name, we have focused on optimizing the performance of our brand portfolio. This is reflected in the
introduction of new packaging and displays for Victor, along with new “Victor green” trade dress and packaging for Victor Thermal
Dynamics manual and automated product lines.
To our valued distributors, business partners and end users, we share the message that coupled with our brand changes, our
resolve in the pursuit of strong product solutions, innovation and technology remains unchanged.
For example, Victor has introduced its new line of 400 Series oxy-fuel torches that offer better ergonomics and end-user driven
features such as a new contoured handle, three-tube cutting attachment design and color-coded valves for clarity and enhanced
safety. The 400 Series boasts a contoured, high-strength alloy torch handle that, while lighter than a brass handle, balances better
in operators’ hands and better resists wear and abuse.
In Victor Thermal Dynamics Automation, the rollout of the AutoCut XT and UltraCut XT lines represent the next generation in
precision plasma cutting. Ultra-Cut XT systems provide the flexibility to increase cutting power and the assurance of superior
quality, higher productivity and lower cutting costs. And because of its expansion capabilities, there is never a concern about
choosing the right system.
In specialty welding, Tweco also boasts a new logo and refreshed packaging. In addition to the new Tweco Velocity MIG
consumables and light-duty Tweco Fusion MIG guns, Tweco has also announced its scheduled launch of the Tweco Classic Series
MIG guns, an enhancement to the original “numbered series” that is arguably one of the most popular gun designs in the world.
Tweco Classic enhancements will include interlocking joints for superior toughness, an angled trigger for a more comfortable pull
and refined, modernized lines.
In addition to these exciting announcements, we invite you to help us celebrate this year’s 100th anniversary of the Victor brand.
Please read about our 100th Anniversary contests in this issue of NewsUpdate, and we invite you to share in a special celebration
with us later this year at the 2013 Fabtech. Stay tuned for additional details, and again, thank you for your valued role in delivering
Victor Technologies cutting, gas control and specialty welding products that set the standard for versatility and performance.

Q1Q2-2013-Victor-Technologies-Sales-and-Marketing-Newsletter

 

Victor Technologies Q4 Sales & Marketing Newsletter2012 wrapped up with lots great new products and related updates, including updated brand marks and new product packaging.

For those of you who were able to visit us at Fabtech, November 12-14 in Las Vegas, I’m sure you too were encouraged by the high level of industry participation and interest that was evident throughout the show.

Fabtech was an especially positive event for Victor Technologies, as we unveiled a host of new products and brand announcements, the most visible involving the co-branding of Victor with Thermal Dynamics®, and soon with TurboTorch® and Arcair®. With all cutting processes now unified under the Victor brand, we offer the most advanced array of cutting solutions in the market.

Under the banner of Innovation to Shape the World, our commitment to design and manufacture innovative new products was evident throughout each of our brand exhibits. In automated plasma cutting, “bringing intelligence to the table” was demonstrated with live cutting driven by the Victor Thermal Dynamics iCNC® XT Controller, the latest addition to our offering as a comprehensive solutions provider. The intelligence inside the iCNC XT enables the end user to optimize cut quality and speed at a lower cost per cut, regardless of their plasma cutting and programming experience.

In oxy-fuel cutting, the Victor portfolio is also strengthened with the January 2013 addition of the Victor 400 Series oxy-fuel torch. It incorporates end-user driven features that include a new contoured handle for superior ergonomics, an in-head universal
gas mixer that improves the operator’s view of the cutting path and color-coded knobs for ease-of-use and enhanced safety.

In welding, Tweco® unveiled an updated brand logo and prototypes of new packaging for its line of MIG welding guns. And in this issue of Sales Update, you’ll read about a number of exciting enhancements to the Tweco and Thermal Arc® line of welding products, including new Tweco FusionTM light-duty MIG guns and VelocityTM consumables, both new standards on all Thermal Arc Fabricator® 3-in-1 series welders.

These exciting announcements are part of our commitment to you, our supplier and distributor partners, and your role in delivering Victor Technologies cutting, welding and gas regulation products that set the standard for versatility and performance. For 2013, we invite you to help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Victor brand. It is a milestone we are especially proud to share with you, our customers and our employees.

 Stoody end-user focus results in development of wires to meet specific challenges of erosion, corrosion and needs of the oil and natural gas industries.

 StoodyVictor Technologies brand, has developed a series of wires to support end-users engaged in oil and natural gas exploration, transportation and processing applications in the U.S. and Canada. These wires extend wire life and support greater productivity when hardfacing and hardbanding (view video).

Drilling (Exploration) ApplicationsStoody Introduces Hardfacing and Hardbanding Wires  For Oil & Gas Exploration, Transportation and Refining Applications

Stoody HB-62 (62 Rockwell C hardness) and Stoody HB-56 (56 Rockwell C hardness) now have Fearnley Procter NS-1ä certification. The company has also developed Stoody HB-Ti for titanium alloys. Stoody developed HB-62 in conjunction with a hard banding company and Pipe clad with this wire went from drilling two holes to six holes before needing resurfacing, a 300% improvement. The Fearnley Procter NS accreditation program provides oilfield equipment and service companies with an industry-recognized approval program that supplements the requirements of American Petroleum Institute standards and demonstrates superior quality management and performance to offshore and onshore operators.

ThermaClad  104TJ is a submerged arc wire intended for the multiple layer buildup and repair of worn tool joints. Weld deposits are crack free, can be machined with high-speed tools, carbide tools and can be flame cut. ThermaClad 104TJ has excellent resistance to impact and plastic deformation.

Pipeline Transportation

StoodCorTM 136 was designed specifically for applications where erosion and corrosion are of equal concern. Through  Stoody’s membership in industry organizations, working directly with end-users in the Canadian oil sands,  Stoody developed a complex carbide alloy that outperforms typical nickel based tungsten carbide wires in slurry jet erosion testing for a fraction of the price. StoodCor 136 is ideally suited for ID cladding on pipe, pipe elbows or plate subjected to a combination of abrasive wear and corrosion.

Processing & Storage

Stoody has developed a nickel-based family of flux cored wires designed to weld Inconel and similar alloys* used to build liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanks and flue gas desulphurization units (FGDs).

*INCONEL® is a registered trademark of the INCO family of companies.

These all-position nickel-based flux cored wires deposit 10 to 15 lbs. of weld metal per hour, which is approximately three to five times the production rate of stick welding. When considering products used for joining or cladding, this family of all-position wires includes:

  • Stoody 625-T1 (AWS: ENiCrMo3T1-1/-4)
  • Stoody 625LI-T1 (AWS:  ENiCrMo3T1-1/-4)
  • Stoody 82-T1 (AWS: ENiCr3T1-1/4)
  • Stoody 182-T1 (AWS:  ENiCrFe3T1-1/-4)
  • Stoody A-T1 (AWS:  ENiCrFe2T1-1/-4)
  • Stoody C276-T1 (AWS: ENiCrMo4T1-1/-4)
  • Stoody 622-T1 (AWS ENiCrMo10-1/-4)

 Stoody nickel-based fluxed cored wires offer the robustness of manual process stick electrodes with the higher productivity rates associated with semi-automatic welding.
