Rotoweld 3.0

The future of fully automated pipe spool welding

The Rotoweld 3.0 is an advanced fully automated welding system designed to dramatically boost pipe spool productivity and quality. From root to cap, this machine utilizes machine intelligence to track the weld puddle and make real-time adjustments to account for fit-up and material inconsistencies. Welding times are roughly 1min per 1in of pipe OD for standard wall and 1.5min per 1in of pipe OD of for heavy wall. The Rotoweld has computerized control and robotic arms, to deliver high-quality welds on cylindrical workpieces. It offers significant advantages in terms of productivity and consistency, reducing the need for manual labor and the associated risk of human error. The Rotoweld 3.0 is an invaluable tool for industries requiring reliable and precise welding on pipes, tanks, and other cylindrical structures, making it a key player in streamlining manufacturing processes and ensuring top-notch weld quality.

Rotoweld 3.0 Twin Bay

The Rotoweld 3.0 Twin Bay is all about efficiency and arc-on time. Make loading, unloading, grinding and aligning time losses disappear with the twin bay. Prepare your next spool on the second bay while the Rotoweld is completing a job on the first bay. This is how you’ll accomplish up to 300 dia inch in a single 10-hour shift.

Automated TIG Pipe Spool Welding Machine 

M3 Pipe Spool Welder

GSI Machinery sells, installs and provides training for the all new M3 automated pipe spool welding machines. Produced in the USA, this stationary in-shop automated pipe welding solution provides pipe fabrication shops with a simple to use, cost-effective solution to achieve consistent high quality welds. The base unit is setup to perform TIG and Hot-Wire TIG welding processes. This machine is fully programmable and weld schedules can be saved in the unit. Vision cameras are available for real-time seam tracking to allow operators to make adjustments mid-weld. GSI chose this machine to offer to our customers because we believe it provides the most cost-effective, easy to operate welding solution with excellent local support being produced in the USA. Contact us today for a demonstration to see if this machine is the right for your production needs.

Save up to 90% Gas

Save up to 90% gas consumption by utilizing our patented PurgeMaster. By magnetically tracking the ID and OD of the workpiece, it is no longer necessary to purge the entire workpiece before welding.

Automated Pipe Welding: Our Products

Why Automate?

As we continue to see a decline in the number and quality of skilled welders one thing remains the same: the demand for critical piping systems within our essential infrastructure. The shops who innovate to overcome this growing challenge to our industry are going to put themselves in a position for growth, while shops who fail to innovate are creating the potential to lose future business. It is an unfortunate reality that our skilled workforce is declining, but a reality non-the-less. GSI Machinery's mission is to strengthen America's critical infrastructure by serving those who maintain it, and to that end we are providing innovations that will keep fabrication on American soil rather than overseas in places where labor and quality are cheap. It is detrimental to the reliability of our infrastructure to have this work outsourced and so we are providing solutions that will keep our shops at home competitive in today's global market. The idea is not to put welders out of a job but instead to free up skilled welders to perform more complex welding operations while our technology handles the mundane, repeatable welding tasks and keeps shops productive with the limited welders they still have. There are numerous benefits to automating the pipe welding process including repeatable quality, consistency, speed, safety, and throughput. If you are curious to learn more, please reach out to us today and let's see if it makes sense for your shop to consider an automated pipe welding solution.
