Robotic Welding For Full Root, Fill & Cap Welding Of Pressure Pipe

The Situation

A major energy company with pipe fabrication facilities located in a remote area of Alberta, Canada, approached LJ for a solution to their unique production challenge which was the following:

 

  1. The facility was located in a remote northern area which made sourcing quality labor difficult to attract and expensive to maintain.  Automation was a must.
  2. Fully automated root, fill and cap passes for pressure pipe were required, but are notoriously difficult to achieve on a consistent basis.  LJ was tasked with developing weld procedures to meet "B-Pressure" code (to ASME Section IX, B31.3, and B31.4.)
  3. They required a one-stop-shop that would include everything from R&D, weld procedures, engineering design, through to the manufacturing of a highly customized pipe handling and joining system, followed by commissioning on site, extensive training and ongoing after-market support.
  4. Short lead times and budget were also major considerations for the customer.

The customer new that there was one company that could deliver on all of the the above needs: LJ Welding Automation.
