In the area of pipe welding, the TIG orbital welding process offers a number of advantages: weld strength, molten metal compactness, full penetration, clean welds with no protuberances, fine seam...
The most notable feature of this process isits very high quality welding seam, in terms of its purity, finished appearance and its surface. This property is particularly interesting when the demand for welding quality is very high, in sectors such as the semiconductor industry, the aerospace industry, or the pharmaceutical industry.
TIG orbital welding and the pharmaceutical and food industry ? To ensure compliance with hygiene standards !
We can look atthe example of STIB Industriewhich is equipped with the entire range of AXXAIR orbital machines (orbital cutting machines, beveling and orbital welding).
This company used a pulsed TIG welding power source equipped with a SATF-65 closedorbital weldinghead for the pharmaceutical and food industry to weld stainless steel pipes of diameters ranging from 13 to 53mm, and with a thickness of 3mm.
Advantages of the global process in the petrochemical sector
For the petrochemical industry the company has also usedthe range of orbital beveling and cutting machinesfor black steel tubes with a diameter ranging from 33 to 325mm and a maximum thickness of 13mm.
STIB, founded in April 1982, is specialized in boiler and industrial piping work, the installation of all pipes used to circulate a fluid, assembly of additional equipment: valves, fittings, etc., as well as factory maintenance.
