PROJECT ON AUTOMATED CIRCUMFERENTIAL WELD

1 April 2019

The contractor turned to our company’s experts in order to increase welding capacity and induce automated welding of the receivers’ circumferential seams. This cooperation made it possible to finish the project on automated welding of the receivers to be used later to store the refrigerant inside the industrial refrigeration units with operating pressure in 28 atm. The unit represents a rack supplied with two sets of attachments for welding under flux and a system for lifting and fixing the workpiece.
