An example of our customer's custom fabrication involving Growing Line Systems: 

alignment rolls

LJ specializes in an innovative growing line system used for fast alignment, leveling, fit-up, and indexing of large pipes and vessels up to 60 tons and 20ft diameter. They are essential tools that improve the process of accurate alignment of pipes, tanks, and other cylindrical workpieces.

LJ’s vessel growing line systems provide superior fit-up capabilities including powered elevation, side shift, track drive features, and indexing features which allow the operator to efficiently and safely line up and "grow" heavy vessel sections during fit-up. They also allow for the assembly of cans while minimizing the use of cranes, making it ideal for wind towers, tank, or vessel manufacturing applications where numerous sections are being joined. Finally, LJ’s welding growing system line 100TA-100 eliminates the need for wedges and inefficient/potentially unsafe manual jacking systems to align the cans.

The 100TA-100 growing line system features a loading capacity of 100 tons which allows it to carry and roll pipes of various weights while keeping an accurate centerline. It can also adjust to cylindrical objects of different diameters, specifically in a range from 66” to 240”. 100TA-100 requires a minimum length of the workpiece, 72”, in order to perform efficiently and within the standards.

At LJ Welding, we try to offer the best solutions that meet the needs of our customers. If you’re looking for a growing line system with different technical specs, make sure to check out the 60TA-100 growing line system or 40TA-100 growing line system.
