Elliptical Wire Technology: Improved Tool-point Control in GMAW and Arc DED

July 10, 2023

Precise control of the wire electrode or “tool-point” position is critical in gas metal arc welding and arc directed energy deposition. Newly developed elliptical wire technology (EWT) offers improvements in tool-point control.

Recently, EWI completed a study of EWT, comparing many of its features against standard round-wire electrode feedstock. The promising results are discussed in Elliptical Wire Technology, a new paper by EWI Associate Engineer Jason Rausch and Senior Technology Leader Dennis Harwig.
