  • Patent number: 5088638
    Abstract: A method for making sucker rods composed of a rod body (1) and end heads (2), consisting in upsetting the rod body end portions (8) carried out at a temperature that precludes softening of the rod body (1) metal, a thickening (9) being formed on each of the end portions (8), the width of the thickening in a direction perpendicular with the rod body (1) axis being equal to or in excess of the head (2) maximum diameter in the weld joint place, while its length exceeds the width of the heat-affected area (17) involved in the welding process. A transition portion (10) shaped as a solid of revolution has a cross-section which smoothly and continuously decreases from the thickening (9) towards the rod body (1). The upsetting procedure is followed by friction welding of each of the end heads (2) together with the thickening (9) on the rod body and portion (8) and by turning the weld joint zone.

  • Patent number: 4931702
    Abstract: An electric-arc device has two aligned electrodes separated by an arc gap. The position of an electric arc in the arc gap is stabilized by using at least two coils, each made as a rectangular loop and bent around a cylindric surface. The coils are mounted around the electrodes such that their arcuate sides form two respective circumferences whose centers lie on a line parallel to the axis of the electrodes. The length of the straight side of each coil is no less than the length of the arc gap. The coils are connected to a power supply such that currents flowing along the adjacent straight sides of the neighboring coils are oppositely directed. These opposing currents induce a magnetic field into the arc gap which controls the location of the electric arc.
