 New ZERODE-44 is a lime titania type coveredelectrode classified as D4303 per JIS Z 3211,which corresponds to the AWS classification of A5.1 E6013, a high titania type electrode. In com- parison with conventional E6013 electrodes, NewZERODE-44 offers• Higher crack resistance• Superior porosity resistance• Higher impact toughness• Deeper penetration and flatter bead shape• Higher deposition rates• Easier slag removal in narrow groovesTable 1 shows a comparison between NewZERODE-44 and the conventional E6013 elec-trode in terms of Charpy impact toughness. NewZERODE-44 exhibits glossy bead appearance dueto improved slag detachability and sufficient pene-tration as shown in Figure 1. As shown in Figure 2, New ZERODE-44 offers higher deposition rates because its covering contains iron powder, unlikethe conventional E6013 electrode.

In comparison with conventional D4303 elec-trodes, New ZERODE-44 offers approximately30% lower welding fume emission rates as shownin Figure 3, and its sophisticated covering picks upmoisture in the atmosphere at slower rates asshown in Figure 4.

A happy New Year 2006
We have sailed into a new era. This is the year inwhich we have to make up a new Three-Year Busi-ness Plan that sets our targets of achievement in salesand profits and details a strategy for executing the plan. This plan is expected to be a big step forward inrealizing our dreams in which the high reputation for KOBELCO products prevails among customers andusers worldwide.For worldwide manufacturing and sales, KOBELCOtoday has seven production plants, one sales com- pany, and one production partner outside Japan. Lastyear KMWT in Thailand expanded their productioncapacity to respond to growing demand from the automobile, motorcycle and con-struction machinery industries. This year KWK in South Korea is planning toincrease their production capacity to solve a tight supply-demand situation. Further-more, KWE in the Netherlands is planning to start the manufacturing of mild steelflux-cored wires, in addition to the present production of stainless steel flux-coredwires, in 2007.It has been the case that we have not been able to supply welding robots and auto-matic welding equipment to overseas markets. However, under the new plan, we arenow planning to export KOBELCO welding robots and automatic equipment aswell as to continue supplying traditional welding consumables to provide customersand users with the total solution for arc welding in the near future.

Targeting to be a reliable company
A happy New Year to all the readers of KobelcoWelding Today! What plans do you have for the NewYear? As I look back on last year, it was full of natu-ral disasters with the big earthquake off the Sumatrancoast that caused a great number of casualties in Indo-nesia and surrounding countries, the big hurricanescausing terrible floods in the US, and the abnormalclimate in Japan, with a hot spell in the summer andcontinuous typhoons. In a way, the welding business,too, encountered difficulties last year though not inrelation to any natural disasters. Triggered by rapideconomic growth in China, waves of price hikesaffected raw materials such as iron ores and energysources like coal and oil. This affected our business a great deal, and we were com- pelled to raise prices of our products, too, in order to maintain stable supply. Wethank you very much for your generous understanding about this.This year, we are to draw up a mid-term (2006 - 2008) business plan. Though it isdifficult to foresee the economic trends in markets, market positions and exchangerates in the coming three years, we are determined to pursue the activities needed inwhatever business environment to maintain continuous growth and become a lead-ing company in the world. We will make the effort to become the kind of companythat will make you say “Ask Kobelco for the solution. They are reliable.” We sin-cerely hope to continue to have your patronage.
