May 3, 2005: Miami, FL- Joel Stanley, representing Northern Penobscot Tech, Region III, Maine, is the official winner of the 2005 U.S. Open Weld Trials held at The American Welding Society's (AWS) 2005 AWS Welding Show at the Dallas Convention Center, Dallas, TX. His win earned him two gold medals and a $40,000, four-year scholarship sponsored by Miller Electric. Six contestants representing other countries also participated in the US Open Weld Trials. Contestants welded for a total of 22 hours and were judged on various levels and skills.
Stanley will represent the U.S. at the World Skills Competition in Helsinki, Finland at the Helsinki Fair Centre. The World Skills Competition is a bi-annual event where young skilled people compete in various trades and test themselves against international standards. Contestants participate in 34 official competition skills that include technology, industry, and services. About 800 competitors from nearly 40 countries participate in the competition.
The American Welding Society is the largest organization in the world dedicated to advancing the science, technology, and application of welding and allied processes, including joining, brazing, soldering, cutting, and thermal spraying. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, USA, AWS serves almost 50,000 members throughout the world. In 2005, the AWS Welding Show - the premier trade show for the welding industry - will take place April 26 through April 28 in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Cleveland, Ohio - For fabrication shops looking to dramatically enhance welding productivity on small- to medium-sized parts, The Lincoln Electric Company introduces its new eCell™ dual fixed table robotic cell. The eCell pre-engineered system is designed to provide a flexible automation layout that delivers consistent and predictable production for small parts lots or exceptionally high part production volumes. Shipped completely assembled and ready for immediate installation and ready production, the eCell is particularly suited for smaller shops seeking a low cost automation alternative to labor intensive arc welding.
eCell is capable of MIG (short arc and spray), Synergic MIG and MIG Pulse welding or Flux-cored arc welding procedures on parts which can be welded without reorientation. It can be used to weld a variety of materials including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.An exceptional reach/stroke ratio and high-axis speeds are at the core of eCell's Fanuc ArcMate l00iBe robot designed to deliver peak productivity for both simple and complex arc welding applications of all sizes and configurations. The R-J3iB Controller and easy-to-use ArcTool software provides reliable performance with affordability. The eCell includes Collision Guard torch protection software with password protection.
eCell is also offered with Torch Mate (automatic tool centerpoint software) and Touch Sensing (automatic part location software) as optionsThe heart of the new system is Lincoln's Power Wave 355 M, a digitally-controlled, 350-amp inverter welding power source capable of complex, high-speed communication. This welding power source features Lincoln's ArcLink® communication software, a Lincoln Nextweld™ innovation, allowing the system components to digitally communicate faster and more reliably than comparable analog-based systems. The unit features the industry's fastest response time for enhanced arc starting and superior arc control which results in reduced arc spatter, reduced fumes, and exceptionally smooth arc welding performance.
The Power Wave 355M is delivered with more than 60 factory-programmed standard waveforms optimized for a variety of materials or applications. Enabled through Waveform Control Technology™, another Lincoln Nextweld innovation, customers can choose a preprogrammed waveform or customize that program to best fit their application.
Manufactured to ISO 9001 Standards, eCell is compliant to ANSI/RIA 15.06-99, and includes ergonomic placement of operator panels, and controls. The eCells' 90-inch x 52-inch footprint minimizes floor space, and its forklift compatible base allows for portability for flexible manufacturing layouts. The cell arrives with a complete metal surround flash and safety barrier, and requires just power, compressed air, and welding consumables to be production ready.
The Lincoln Electric Company, Cleveland, Ohio, is the world leader in the design and manufacture of arc welding equipment and consumables, robotic welding systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment.
