With AWL’s Basic welding concept you are able to weld sprinkler pipes in an automatic way, ensuring an excellent weld quality and an output of up to one socket per minute.
In order to produce these prefabricated tubes in a cost-effective way, AWL has developed three unique concepts which, being based on your requirements in flexibility, level of automation and output, will meet your needs. All AWL concepts are based on standard proven building blocks, making them reliable, safe and fast to integrate into your production facilities. There is also the possibility to include pre-production processes like grinding and grooving.
This basic entry-level concept is a stand-alone welding machine developed for welding small mixes of pipes with an
average output. Loading and unloading is manual, while the welding is automated.
Flexibility is important with the manufacture of prefabricated pipes. Each building has its own special requirements. AWL’s machines are designed to work with different ranges of pipe diameters and lengths, as well as with different sockets.
Ease of use
AWL has integrated an HMI panel in the machine, in which the operator only has to enter the requirements of the pipe, such as length, number of sockets, positions of sockets and number of pipes, in order to produce a pipe with those characteristics.
A leaking pipe can be a big problem. With the AWL machines the welds are done by a robot. This allows a weaving to be done while welding, thus making a thicker weld seam. Optionally, the welding system can monitor the welding parameters. If one of the pre-established parameters is out of the defined values, it means that the socket just welded could have a fault. Our system automatically marks the sockets suspected of having a welding error.
Robots are the most common solution for welding in many industries. By integrating commercial elements which have been proven in other industries, AWL brings state-of-the-art equipment to the sprinkler segment.
AWL is a key supplier of welding machines for the manufacture of prefabricated sprinkler pipes.
