For welding news, insights and the latest developments in welding technology and product advancements, Welding Engineers has the information you need to stay ahead of the curve in the competitive welding industry in New Zealand.

Quality welds made easy

If you are MIG welding, it is well worth considering the use of a metal-cored wire (MCW) rather than a solid wire or standard flux cored wire to reduce the risk of weld defects.

Lack of skilled staff in the welding industry

Highly skilled welders can still experience weld flaws, particularly when getting used to new equipment, or under pressure to meet deadlines, however, more often than not the issue of weld defects boils down to a lack of skilled staff.


In our search for improving efficiency and reducing costs in welding processes, sometimes the obvious is overlooked. Let’s get back to basics: A useful guide is the golden rule for minimising the cost of making a weld:

The first rule of welding workplace safety is to identify the hazards, the second is to eliminate or minimize the risks – and that's where Welding Engineers can help.

Clarke Engineering combine Kemppi and Kobe for perfect welds

A recent project for Clarke Engineering in Tauranga combined the new Kemppi FastMig X Black welding machine with Kobe MX-A70C6LF for outstanding results.
