Orbital Welding Equipment Market: Introduction

  • An orbital welding equipment is a mechanical device which is specialized in the area of welding process for orbital tungsten inert gas welding (TIG) which is technically called gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW).
  • The equipment rotates mechanically through 360° around a static work piece and 180° in double up welding process for tube and pipe welding.
  • Orbital welding equipment is used to address the errors in gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) processes.
  • Orbital welding equipment is controlled by a computer so as to run a high-quality repeatable welding process with little intervention from the operators.
  • The main components used in orbital welding system are power supply, welding head, and wire-feed mechanism.
  • Orbital welding equipment are basically used for welding certain types and sizes of materials.
  • However, there are number of factors which can influence the high-quality of welding process, which include welding speed, arc length, pulse and magnitude frequency of the welding current, parent material, weld preparation, inert shielding gas, thermal conductivity, and filler material.
