GM Fabrication are experts in every type of welding, and provide a range of orbital welding systems for all types of industries including.
GM Fabrication’s orbital welders are Orbitalum, German designed and manufactured. GM Fabrication’s team are fully trained in pipe work installation, orbital welding process so you can be assured of the highest quality results.
This technology is designed for applications where exceptionally high standards in Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Tungsten Gas Arc Welding (TGAW) processes are required. It offers a more reliable, higher-quality approach as the process is fully automated.
The welder inputs basic parameters - diameter, material and wall thickness, and the machine generates the welding parameters, resulting in exact controls.
During the process, the workpiece is kept static while the arc is mechanically rotated around it in continuous motion.
The Orbital Welding equipment is completely computer-controlled and requires only minor assistance from an operator.
As the process is handled mechanically, it allows for a more consistent, reliable weld in comparison to manual welders.
For projects requiring a more consistent, higher weld quality, this is the perfect solution.
Many variables can impact weld quality, and it takes experience to ensure the right controls are in place. GM Fabrication ensures that all of these criteria are met, so you can be assured of the highest quality results.
Our orbital welders follow a precise welding method and trained to work to ASME and Australian standards.
Benefit from precision control, unsurpassed by even the most skilled individual welders.
As the process is computerised and controlled, the same weld can be completed repetitively, resulting in less inconsistency and defects between welds.
This delivers a high level of welding accuracy unachievable from the manual welding process.
The process typically takes place in a cleanroom setting, where components can be welded in a high-purity environment free from contaminants.
This is essential when working with metal tubing as any impurities can cause the entire process to be ruined, costing you precious time and money.
Since the process is fully automatic, it's perfect for producing hundreds of welds because of its repeatability.
Due to the process being computer-controlled, labour requirements decrease so it can actually save you money.
Additionally, speed is increased and the welding process can be scheduled well in advance.
