Reliable solutions for automated offshore welding
Welding Alloys pioneered the design and manufacture of automated welding equipment, continually improving design and build quality with over 40 years of experience. The range of automated welding equipment and consumables offered puts performance and reliability at the welder’s fingertips.
Welding Alloys offers welding equipment and consumables tailored to individual needs, ideal for handling the different types of demanding welding processes required in offshore fabrication. These include:
- Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
- Submerged arc welding (SAW)
- Gas metal arc welding (GMAW)
- Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW)
- Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW)
Automated welding machines
The equipment offered by Welding Alloys supports welding operations throughout the offshore industry. Our control technology, D3-Touch™, allows the simple setup and continuous welding of bores, pipes, valves and stabilisers with exceptional quality and precision, eliminating manual welding operations.
Offshore fabrication must comply with industry standards and approvals. The engineers at Welding Alloys are highly suited to work with teams and companies wherever they may be, in order to develop the best processes and procedures for individual company requirements, ultimately lowering fabrication costs and increasing efficiency.
The MultiSurfacer™ XT orbital welding machine has been designed and developed through Welding Alloys’ continued product development programme and in-depth product knowledge. This machine has been developed to use a hot wire TIG process for cladding bores, blocks and valves, utilising our innovative bore-to-bore software and arc voltage control (AVC).
Welding Alloys MultiSurfacer™ ST stabiliser welding machine is designed specifically to provide the automated welding of drill stabilisers used for applications in soft-to-medium hard formation holes in the oil and gas sectors. Through the use of the Welding Alloys range of consumables and flux-cored cladding wires, a high-quality, defect-free weld can be achieved on stabilisers, offering a superior level of wear resistance.
Welding consumables for offshore applications
In addition to an impressive history of machine building and supply, Welding Alloys offers an all-encompassing range of consumables designed to complement each machine and process, covering the entire range of base materials and filler metals for offshore applications.
