The FabCO 812-Ni1M provides low-temperature toughness for critical applications.
The wire has been formulated to provide low-temperature impact toughness for critical applications, including offshore drilling rigs, transmission and process piping, jackup rig fabrication and shipbuilding. Low diffusible hydrogen levels and low moisture pickup further mitigate the risk of cracking. This gas-shielded low alloy wire consistently maintains good mechanical properties in the as-welded condition and after post-weld stress relief. It creates a weld deposit containing less than 1 % nickel and less than 248 HV10 hardness, allowing it to meet NACE requirements demanded by many oil and gas applications. The wire creates welds with a tensile strength of 93,000 psi and a yield strength of 80,000 psi.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
