Red-D-Arc UK was recently awarded the contract to supply a fully-automated welding system to QA Weldetch, a UK company which is a large subcontractor to companies involved in the manufacture of subsea components, these companies being FMC, Cooper Cameron’s, GE, Aker etc.. This system was designed to clad pipe up to a maximum length of 6.5 meters and to a minimum diameter of 125mm.

Red-D-Arc UK was invited into the customer’s facility to measure the facility so that the customer could clad the maximum length of pipe that their facility would physically allow. Our engineers visited the site then provided the customer with the GA, showing what RDA’s design and solution was for them. The system consists of Key Plant – RDA fully automated control system, 7 ton hollow bore head stock, 2 sets of floating pipe supports (to compensate for any bend in the pipe), Fronius welding power sources and Fronius hot wire power sources.

If you require any further information on this system or a vertical hot wire cladding system please contact Ross McCrorie at ross.mccrorie@airgas.com
