Middleburg Heights, Ohio -
STEVENS Engineers & Constructors, a proven leader in engineering and construction in North America, has announced that it recently installed a Spool Welding Robot (SWR) at its pipe fabrication facility.
"At STEVENS," says the company's spokesperson, "we always look at ways to improve and provide our clients with the best service. One of the ways we've done this recently is by investing in the Spool Welding Robot (SWR) from Novarc. Before the installation of the SWR, we were able to put out 10,000 LF per month. With this newest addition, we will be able to increase our throughput and capacity to better serve our clients."
STEVENS will be able to improve its output due to the cutting-edge dexterity and precision that the SWR equipment provides. For example, hand welding on an 18-inch XH pipe takes over 12 hours. With the SWR, that welding time can be decreased to 33 minutes.
The SWR also enables STEVENS to offer a range of other benefits to its clients' piping projects, including the ability to do a fillet weld (one of the only ones with that capability), handle pipe over 21 feet in length, non-stop welding as it can do root-to-cap welds without stopping, the ability to capture videos of the entire welding process for QC purposes, weld almost any type of pipe material allowing the company to increase the diversity of projects it can handle, the capability to weld a variety of joints with fewer space restrictions, and dual positioners for an increased flow rate as one station can be loaded while the other is being welded.
The spokesperson continues, "Most importantly, it allows STEVENS to reduce imperfections, reduce downtime, improve weld quality, decrease defect rate, and get your project done quicker. If you've got a piping project, whether it's for a steel mill, the oil and gas industry, or a wastewater treatment facility, STEVENS can handle your project in a timely and efficient manner. Don't hesitate to contact STEVENS if you need professionally created pipes for your next pipe fabrication project."
