Red-D-Arc has launched an exciting new product that is designed to increase the productivity and efficiency of pipe welding. The Red-D-Arc Process Pipe Cell with oscillating welding torch is a dual wire feeder, multi-process welding cell. The system is easy to set up and operate. It reduces weld operator errors, reduces welding time, and increases deposition rates, productivity and arc-on time.
A variety of welding power sources and wire feeders can be used with the system including Miller RMD PipeWorx 400 and Lincoln STT S350, S500 and S700 Power Wave systems, with all welding functions controlled via a remote interface.
Root passes can be performed manually with solid wire using either RMD or STT technology (instead of manual GTAW or SMAW) followed up by hot passes and cap passes either solid-wire or flux-cored) with the jammer-style weld oscillator.
Choose the welding positioner, welding chuck, turning roll set or headstock to suit your specific needs. All positioning functions including welding head manipulator, oscillator, welding positioner and turning rolls are managed via a single control.

Red-D-Arc supplied equipment and installation services for a new weld overlay cladding facility in the west of Scotland for one of the leading global distributors of raw material for wellhead and completion equipment to the oil and gas industry. After discussions with the client, Red-D-Arc designed a solution to meet the specific needs of their project. It was determined that the new cladding facility would consist of six Compact Cladding Cells and four Butt Welding Stations.
“We regularly develop specialized solutions alongside our customers…”
Layout of the facility began with our experienced engineers installing the six Red-D-Arc Compact Cladding Cells. Each Compact Cladding Cell consists of an automated system controller, 2m x 1m cross slide, 3 tonne turntable with built-in slip ring for preheating, and a Miller power source. Next, the four Red-D-Arc Butt Welding Stations were installed. Each station consists of an automated system controller; 3m x 3m travelling column and boom; 300mm x 300mm oscillation slide; 3 tonne headstock, 2 travelling support pipe idlers and a Miller power source.
The Red-D-Arc Weld Automation team has extensive experience across diverse sectors of industry. We regularly provide weld process recommendations and develop specialized solutions alongside our customers to address their unique challenges.
