ORBITAL WELDING

Orbital Welding
Soudage orbital AXXAIR
Easy handling

We use simple and easy-to-use standard parts for all our orbital welding heads. This is ideal for those taking their first steps in the world of orbital welding.

Our open welding heads all feature a device for tracking the out-of-roundness of tubes and are available with either an air- or a water-cooling system.

AXXAIR's SAXX power sources are easy to set up and operate. After only a few hours of training, you will be capable of mastering the power supply and with it all your welding tasks.

Quality and consistency

Our welding equipment guarantees high-quality results that will pass even the most critical of tests (x-ray inspection). If all parameters - including the preparation and your surrounding - remain the same, you will receive the same level of quality, weld after weld. 

Additional features
  • Tilting torches

  • External gas protection

  • Wire feeding: weld tubes with wall thicknesses between 3 and 8 mm

  • AVC/Oscillation: weld tubes with wall ticknesses of 8 mm or more, all while guaranteeing the same high level of quality as for all other welds

TIG Power Supplies
Our welding power sources

We offer a range of different welding power supplies. The choice of model depends on the intended use, the tubes that are to be welded and the frequence of utilisation. We offer power sources with a maximum current of 300A.

Our power supplies are specifically designed for our orbital welding heads and machines which all respond to the high standards of industrial sectors such as pharmaceutics, food and beverage, petrochemicals and solar - amongst others of course. 

Standard configuration (depending on the model)
  • 5.7" Touch screen with colour display
  • Secured access through passwords depending on the user authorization
  • Auto programming mode for a synergic creation of programs
  • Programs are created on a USB stick, space for 200 programs with 20 levels each (per USB)
  • Multi criteria search engine for finding your programs on the USB
  • Data acquisition mode on the USB stick: storage space for 999 files
  • Printing option included in the USB 
  • Possibility to view the programmed and real parameters during the weld
  • Step mode: synchronisation of welding speed to the pulse of the current to weld thick tubes without bevel
  • Tracking of all defects during the weld and logging all welding data including possible alarms
  • Optional: AVC, wire feeding and oscillation
  • Remote control with extension cord to control the power source from a distance of up to 20m
  • High performance water cooling system
  • Calibration of the power source, current and tension
  • Log book counting daily and total number of welds
  • Calculation of the total time of each welding cycle
  • Gas detecting system prevents a destruction of the electrode if no gas is flowing

Fixed tube, moving torch 

Because the torch is moving around the tube, you can easily manage larger lengths without geometric distortion. Each machine covers a wide range of diameters.

Closed, open head and tube-to-tube-sheet welding

AXXAIR also develops and manufactures orbital line weld machines for tubes: orbital welding machines with open or closed heads.  We also offer plate welds, intended essentially for heat exchangers
