DIRECT ROOT-TO-SAW PIPE WELDING SYSTEM: PIPE TITAN HD
Direct Root-to-SAW | Up To 5X Faster Cycle Times | Reduced Heat Inputs
LJ's Pipe Titan HD system solves the problem of longer cycle times for welding heavy-wall piping with different diameters. The system uses a direct Root-to-SAW process, allowing operators to perform a manual GMAW root-pass followed immediately by a mechanized AC SAW hot-pass. This results in up to 5X faster cycle times compared to traditional manual methods.
To achieve this level of efficiency in cycle times...
Pipe Titan HD uses EWM Titan XQ 500 power supply with a modified short arc process, known as "rootArc" for open root welding.
The "rootArc" waveform provides excellent gap-bridging and control of the weld pool, with reduced heat input and spatter compared to conventional short-circuit roots.
The transition to the AC SAW hot-pass is done using the Lincoln Powerwave AC/DC 1000 SD. Its superior root welding performance makes it possible to substitute a conventional GMAW 2nd (hot) pass with AC SAW process, up to 4-5x faster.
Heavy-duty made and tested to withstand any type of enviroment...
- Successfully passed 4 PQRs per ASME Section IX, including radiography
- Passed HAZ Charpy testing at -60 Celsius, proving the effectiveness and reliability of the pipe welding system even in harsh conditions
- Durable design using heavy-duty mechanical components
- Machining of the pipes ID is typically not required
Direct Root-to-SAW and up to 5X faster cycle times than traditional manual methods...
Using the direct root-to-saw process, operators can perform a manual GMAW root-pass, followed immediately by a mechanized AC SAW hot-pass.
That results in allowing a 3/16” thick manual GMAW root-pass be immediately followed by a mechanized AC SAW hot-pass, providing up to 5X faster cycle times compared to traditional manual methods.
