Pipeline Welding

The machinery that Copier Bevelmachines manufactures for the pipeline welding industry is mainly focussing on pipe cutting, pipe beveling and pipe welding. Pipelines are most of the time welded on site in the field where the pipelines is aligned, bevelled and welded. Our Beaver F-serie is a pipeline construction machine, this means it is part of the construction process of producing an pipeline.

The Beaver F-serie is an on-site pipe bevel machine for large diameters of pipe (ranging from 16” to 32” or 30” to 48” O.D). The Beaver F-serie is beveling these large diameters pipe for the get welded pipe, the pipe welding machine, the machine clamps, the pipe externally and bevels with its copying system up to 40 mm wall pipes in one pass. This pipe bevel machine is able to perform well with rain, sand, mud and other conditions in the field. The machine is reliable and for heavy duty use. Link Beaver F-serie

We offer welding machinery for pipes but these machines are not to be used in the field. Our automated pipe welding machines are for in the pipe prefabrication shop or in the pipe shop. Even in the shipyard repair and shipyard construction industry these welding machines could be used.

Both the bevel machine and the welding machine mentioned are welding pipeline machinery.

Pipe welding machine

We offer machinery for pipe welding for the pipe diameters from 3” to 42” . These pipe welding machines use GMAW (short circuit), GMAW (spray transfer) , FCAW (flux core) and SAW (submerged arc) the Western European industry is most of the time more used to the TIG welding process but our RTW 3.0 welding system can be described as MIG welding machine. Our welding machines are especially designed to weld faster than all TIG welding machines for pipes. This RTW 3.0 is fast it can weld up to one dia-inch per minute. For example it welds in 8 minutes an 8” standard wall pipe.

The RTW 3.0 is a fully automated work cell developed specifically for industrial pipe fabrication, pressure vessels, pipe spool fabrication, pipeline industry, offshore structures, and other similar welding projects that included pipe fabrication and welding. Even stainless steel pipes or other steel material could be welded with this system. It is really an advanced technology that should be integrated in every pipe shop or pipe fabrication shop.

Furthermore we offer all pipe welding tools that are required by our pipe welding machine.

With this system you can look into the weld and with adaptive control and a joystick you can do some small changes to the welding process. With this system the operator does not have to be a very experienced pipe welder or welding expert because all software and advanced technology make this one of the most accurate and easy to operate welding machines on the market. Contact us directly for more information.

We could offer you a single bay or a twin bay system with the twin bay system you can do all setting on one end and on the other end another pipe is welded, this makes it very time efficient.

How to weld a pipe

The following welding processes are available for pipe welding.

Shielded metal arc welding or in short SMAW - known as "stick welding or electric welding", uses an electrode that has flux, the protectant for the puddle, around it. The electrode holder holds the electrode as it slowly melts away. Slag protects the weld puddle from atmospheric contamination.

Gas tungsten arc welding or in short GTAW - known as TIG (tungsten, inert gas), uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area is protected from atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas such as argon or helium.

Gas metal arc welding or in short GMAW – mostly called MIG welding, MIG stands for metal, inert gas, uses a wire feeding gun that feeds wire at an adjustable speed and flows an argon-based shielding gas or a mix of argon and carbon dioxide(CO2) over the weld puddle to protect it from atmospheric contamination.

Flux-cored arc welding or in short FCAW – This is almost identical to MIG welding except it uses a special tubular wire filled with flux. This welding process could be used with or without shielding gas, depending on the filler.

Submerged arc welding or in short SAW – SAW uses an automatically fed consumable electrode and a blanket of granular fusible flux. The molten weld and the arc zone are protected from atmospheric contamination by being "submerged" under the flux blanket.

GTAW is widely used and nearly for all weld able metals, though it is often applied for stainless steel pipes and light metals. GTAW is often used when the welding quality is extremely important for example in the oil and gas related industries.

GMAW is a welding process where an electric arc is formed between the consumable wire and the workpiece that has to be welded, which heat the workpiece metal causing it to meld and to join to gather and preform a weld. In this welding process shield gas is used to weld through the welding gun. GMAW can be used the fill the root, the fill and the cap.
