The Rotoweld Automated Pipe Welding Revolution

Why is Rotoweld such a unique solution for automated pipe welding? What makes this machine so special and why are shops raving about it? In this article we break down a few of the reasons Rotoweld is a unique solution that is changing the game in automated pipe welding.

First, the development of our proprietary Perfect Pass IQ software is completely revolutionary to welding automation. This new software harnesses the power of AI and machine learning to allow this machine to make real-time weld adjustments, on the fly. That means if you have gaps in your fitup or a batch of material that is melting different this machine senses those variables and makes the appropriate weld adjustments to ensure a perfect weld is still archived without relying on an operator with special training to make the adjustments in real-time. Simply set the machine up and let it weld and it will weld right through fitup gaps and all sorts of materials and wall thicknesses for you. Previously and with many of our competitor machines, weld adjustments are made by an operator. This means you must first program the machine, make a weld, read the weld puddle and made any adjustments from there until you reach a weld program that works. Or you have some sort of remote control to allow an operator to move the torch in real time which can pose issues if the operator is not skilled with the machine or not skilled at seeing potential weld issues before the puddle reaches them. Many times, these machines require a near-perfect weld fitup, which creates a bottle neck in the fitting process and defeats any real production gains from automating the welding. With Rotoweld, simply set the pipe in place and let the machine take it from there. You can continue your fitup process just as it was before you implemented this machine and the machine will account for fitup inconsistencies, avoiding any bottlenecks and boosting your throughput.
