Welding is at the core of pipeline construction and the major threat in welding is the fact that using traditional welding system which is the manual welding
system, will involve welders association.
TIG process is still predominantly manual welding
process, highly dependent on welder's skills.
In today's big industries, even if welding robot is commonly used, manual welding
has a substantial field of application in small scale industry and repair at the stage of production.
However, shifting from manual welding
to laser cladding was a game changer for the company because we saved time and ensured better quality of products.
Last year HTA Group, which carries out robotic and manual welding
and fabrication at its 90,000 sq ft factory in Coventry, invested more than PS2million in automated laser profiling technology.
Who is going to be capable of running the automated cells on your shop floor, which demands a different way to work than manual welding
? Having the right employees on your shop floor or in the field depends more on education, not just skills training.
It has partnered Lonestar Welding Australia and specialises in providing automatic and manual welding
services and the supply or hire of automatic welding equipment for customers in the oil, gas and water industries.
The global welding equipment market is witnessing a shift from manual welding
to automatic welding.
Reviews of manual welding
were conducted to inform the design of an intelligent automated welding system that will track the weld gap, monitor performance and adjust the welding arm in response to this feedback, just as a human would.
This process eliminates the normal inconsistencies, errors and defects of manual welding
and often reduces or eliminates the need for radiographic inspections.
These high productivity consumables are designed for the widely used manual welding
process, but also cater for semi-automatic and fully automatic welding applications that are being more widely adopted, particularly on long pipeline routes.
