Orbital welding is a specialised area of welding whereby the arc is rotated around a static pipe or tube during welding. These orbital welding systems were developed to solve the issue of operator error and operator fatigue in the gas tungsten welding process (GTAW).
Because the orbital welding systems are fully automated and the welding touch is in the optimal position throughout the welding phase, it reduces the probability of operator error and decreases the likelihood of welding discontinuities and defects.
The welding quality that orbital welding systems offer on both small and large diameter pipes make it an excellent choice for many pipe welding applications. This is why is it frequently used in industries like semiconductors, food processing, oil and gas and also aerospace industries.
Easy to use
The welding systems features a mechanical profile tracking device so precise welding can be carried out. It is available in air-cooled version or water-cooled version and uses industry-standard parts with simple and easy mechanics. With just a few hours of training (which will be provided free), you can easily take your first steps into the world of orbital welding.
Quality and consistency
The system offers optimal welding quality passing the most stringent testing (x-ray inspection) weld after weld. This is especially important in industries like semiconductors, oil and gas, food processing, pharmaceuticals etc.
Offers varying options
Depending on your pipe material, pipe thickness and pipe diameter, our team will be able to recommend a system to best suit your needs.
If you already own an AMI orbital welding system, no need to worry. The AXXAIR weld heads are compatible with AMI power supplies so there is no need to purchase additional power units if you already use certain AMI units. If you require a change of weld heads for your existing AMI power supplies, our AXXAIR ones would also be suitable.
