Pemamek has released a new solution for pressure vessels that automates the nozzle welding process.
The solution reduces defect rates and saves manual welding hours typically required for a time-consuming and demanding multi-layer welding procedure.
Designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind, this is a good solution for heavy-duty workpieces that contain thick plates and large, prepared grooves.
Pemamek application manager for process and offshore equipment Jyri Luthio said: “For companies operating in the process industry to be able to meet capacity, quality and production demands, we see a need for an automated solution for pressure vessel welding,
“Automation improves welding quality and reduces defect rates. It also responds to the challenges of finding enough qualified manual welders.”
In addition to other advanced features, the PEMA nozzle welding solution enables the automatic creation of robotic welding programs based on laser-scanned groove geometry.
Luthio also said: “We offer two standard-sized solutions for pressure vessel nozzle welding that cover a good range of current market needs in terms of pressure vessel dimensions and weights. However, if needed, we will customise a solution to match the customer’s needs.”
