There are two types of orbital welding, open-head and closed-head. The video below shows the closed-head technology. This method is used for thin-walled pipes.
With closed-head technology, pipes can be well welded up to a wall thickness of up to 2 mm. For thicker tubes, open-head technology is commonly used, where welding is already carried out with filler metal.
Orbital welding can only be used for pipe welding. It is commonly used for welding acid-resistant pipes.
How It Works?
Orbital welding is a specialized area of welding whereby the arc is rotated mechanically through 360° (180 degrees in double up welding) around a static workpiece, an object such as a pipe, in a continuous process. In orbital welding, computer-controlled process runs with little intervention from the operator. The process is used specifically for high quality repeatable welding.
The machine must be programmed in relation to the size and wall thickness of the selected pipe.
In the first welding it is advisable to look at the result with the manufacturer’s parameters. Then you need to consider what is worth changing.
A great advantage of this process is that it provides a smooth seam. If the machine is properly programmed, you will receive thousands of the same welded seams from that point on.
