How To Optimize Orbital Welding?

orbital welding is a technique whereby the welding tool is rotated through 360° (or 180° in double up welding) around a static workpiece.

orbital welding technology was developed in the 1960s when there was a need for a more precise welding method in the aerospace industry.

this particular process then started to find its place in varying fields from automotive engineering to food processing.


the manufacturing process involves positions that are difficult to handle manually.

the location where the welding is carried out and the machine itself is located affects the safety of the welder.

large quantities of welds are required to be produced.

since the process is fully automated, orbital welding is perfect to produce large quantities of welds because of its repeatability.
