MIG, TIG, MMA and SAW welding equipment and cutting equipment
ESAB offers a complete line of MIG, TIG, MMA and SAW welding equipment as well as all the filler metals – from cored wires to covered electrodes – you need to complete the job.

Shipbuilding welding and cutting equipment
The latest generation of equipment for manual welding and cutting can be programmed with specific process preferences of your individual choice or for the actual welding processes. Based on a solid-state power source, this manual welding and cutting equipment weighs just one-eightieth of its 70-year-old ancestors but has more power.
Our plasma cutting equipment enables you to quickly and accurately cut all types of metals.
Shipbuilding welding automation equipment
Welding automation gives advantages such as higher quality, improved capacity and higher productivity in the form of more welded goods per time unit, as well as improved working environment and work content for the welder.
At ESAB we have many years’ experience of mechanised welding and welding automation. Over the years we have supplied a large number of automated welding systems and welding applications, everything from small mechanised welding systems – such as a Miggytrac welding trolley for length welding – up to very complex and highly efficient applications such as friction stir welding machines for forging together large aluminium tanks for space rockets.
For ESAB, there is no job too large or too small in our quest to find the best automation solution for our customers. At the same time, continuous development of welding processes and equipment for more efficient automation is underway within ESAB.
Please feel free to contact us for an initial assessment on how we can assist you in your quest for more efficient welding.
