At Praxair, we are a trusted provider of industrial gases, applications, products and services that support welding, cutting and other processes. Our ProStar® product line includes welding supplies, cutting machines and automation from a large variety of manufacturers, and our strategically distributed plants and hubs allow us to efficiently supply our customers with our full range of industrial and process gases. But our service goes beyond providing high-quality products. We are an overall solutions provider and through our exclusive StarSolver® Productivity Enhancement Program, we work with you to reduce manufacturing costs, increase productivity and improve quality. We also have five R&D centers dedicated to developing new technologies that help you do just that.
Stargon™ AL Shielding Gas
Praxiar’s Stargon AL welding blend is an advanced shielding gas for welding aluminum. Stargon AL blend is a carefully prepared proprietary blend of argon with precisely controlled ppm (parts per million) additions of active gases, and it is versatile for use in both GMAW and GTAW processes.When compared to pure argon, Stargon AL blend provides better arc control, penetration and weld puddle placement, resulting in improved weld speeds and weld quality.By increasing arc stability, arc energy and overall arc performance, Praxair’s Stargon AL blend improves bead appearance, can reduce the cleaning zone, and provides better wetting and weld penetration – increasing process weld quality and operator appeal.
ProStar™ Lancer Series CNC Cutting Tables
Praxair’s ProStar™ Lancer Series CNC plasma cutting systems are an affordable, easily deployed solution for the steel processing needs of light fabricators, job shops, HVAC and sign companies—as well as artists and hobbyists.With effective cut dimensions of 4’ × 4’ to 6' x 12', The Lancer CNC cutting systems provide the ability to efficiently process carbon steel, stainless steel plate, and more.These machines feature full support for Hypertherm® and Thermal Dynamics® plasma systems, and FlashCut CNC controllers for fast cutting speeds, optimal nesting, exceptional cut quality, and ease of use. The Lancer CNC cutting systems require minimal setup and feature unitized frames that are forklift accessible, making them easy to deploy or move as facility needs evolve.
Stargon™ VS Shielding Gas
Praxair’s Stargon VS is a proprietary blend of argon, helium, and carbon dioxide, designed to meet the demands of your MIG/MAG (GMAW) process with enhanced performance and lower operational costs. Stargon VS gas blend provides high arc energy which stabilizes the arc and allows maximum wire transfer rates and travel speeds, focused penetration and excellent bead appearance – good wetting, flat crown and minimal spatter. Stargon VS is optimal for:Metal cored and solid core wiresAll position weldingJobs requiring changes in metal transfer modes and electrode typesHigh arc stability at both low and high amperages
