Clearing the Air
Welding is who we are. Blades, guards... you name it. Our proprietary weld process is what sets us apart in the industry.
Our specialized welding team practices fusion welding, specifically electric arc; process of applying an electric arc to melt the base and filler metals. The two types of electric arc welding performed at Winter® include:
- Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW) Filler metal electrode; flux shield
- Gas Metal Arc (GMAW/MIG) consumable electrode for filler metal; external gas shield
Improper safety procedures can lead to harmful effect to the welder and other operators on the production floor. Exposure to welding fumes can cause kidney, lung, and nervous system damage.

Winter® has recently installed a new air recovery system that efficiently and effectively removes the harmful smoke and ambers away from the operator. The combination of fume hoods, extractor guns, and vacuum nozzles are placed appropriately (close to the source) to pull the fumes away from the operator as quickly as possible. Exhaust ports are properly located to increase safety for all manufacturing team members.
The new air recovery system along with proper cleaning procedures, proper machine placement, and appropriate operator positioning make the manufacturing environment safe for everyone on the floor. Moving forward, Winter® will continue to invest in equipment and process that keep employees safe.
