Krasny Kotelshchik Boiler Making Plant in Taganrog (ТКZ), being part of Power Machines Company has put into operation the new equipment for automatic submerged arc welding. This process ensures high quality production of welded joints and high productivity operation.
Specifically speaking, ТКZ purchased a welding head within the framework of upgrading the automatic welder designed to make circular welded joints of manifolds and pipelines.
Due to introduction of the new equipment, the plant’s engineers and technicians can perform the automatic welding of products from various structural classes including those which require smooth adjustment of welding parameters, as well as give up on labor intensive manual arc welding with coated welding roads.
At the same time, ТКZ put into service a welding tractor designed to make lengthwise welding joints of the pipeline connecting parts. The plant replaced the morally obsolete and physically worn out equipment which had been in use for more than 13 years. The main advantage of the new welding tractor is operation within a broad range of modes and considerable reduction in time required to re-adjust the equipment and administer technical service.
