The perfect weld seam: high strength, optically and metallurgically perfect, efficiently to perform, no rework. In order to achieve this goal, a high-quality gas protection is necessary - not only in the process area but also for the trailing temperature field of the workpiece. Trailing shields are used for trailing gas protection for many welding applications, especially regarding materials which are highly sensitive to oxidation, i.e. high-alloyed steels or titanium. Due to the wide range of different welding torches for the most diverse component geometries, self-made solutions are often used in practice. They are not always the best solution in terms of gas protection and also often very expensive in terms of their iterative development for the welding company. Additive manufacturing methods open up totally new possibilities for the construction of trailing shields. Whether manual or automated welding - the individual trailing shields can be adopted to all welding torches and complex shaped components. A large variety of materials is available for cost-efficient single piece production.
