Home » Stainless steel manifolds: technology for lead time optimization
Taking care of all the processing phases is very important for the quality we demand from our products.
We TIG weld our manifolds to guarantee optimal sealing without filler and, as a result, without altering the design and hydraulic capacity of our manifolds. You could say, in fact, that TIG welding is an excellent ally for reducing head losses.
Starting from this welding method and maintaining the same quality parameters, we recently introduced some technological novelties that help optimise the working process.
To obtain this result we strengthened the welding department by adding two new stations to those we already have. Our aim was to act on the lead time, by both increasing production potential and reducing the cycle time. In this way we can answer client requests in an increasingly more flexible manner, above all supplying big lots of items in reduced times.
The new welding systems were studied ad hoc to be able to work on our stainless steel manifolds at best.
One is a double torch, which greatly reduces processing times. The other eliminates manual spot welding operations. The machine, in fact, has an automatic positioning and centring system, ideal when welding extremities with flanges or concave bottoms, and is an oscillation system that compensates any piece coupling faults. Even in this case the processing time is reduced, with an additional guarantee of the precision and repeatability of automatic systems.
