4943 Aluminum TIG Rod Is Key to Medical Equipment Quality

By: Hobart Brothers

Fort Defiance Industries (FDI) manufactures medical equipment for the Department of Defense. Hobart 4943 TIG rod delivers the quality they demand. When welding automated field steam sterilizers for the U.S. military, quality is the top priority. Fort Defiance Industries turned to Hobart to ensure the filler metal delivers the weld quality demanded by a machine operating in remote and harsh environments. Choosing Hobart MaxalTig® 4943 aluminum filler metal to manufacture the sterilizers resulted in significantly better weld strength compared to 4043 products. FDI also saves time thanks to the smooth performance of the 4943 aluminum filler metal, which minimizes rework. With Hobart, the welds are done right the first time.
