Demonstrating Firefly's linear capabilities on a flat track

17 September 2015


Firefly's primary use is intended to be an orbital pipe welding machine; however the Firefly welding machine can be used on a flat or horizontal track as well. Other than mounting a flat track instead of an orbital track/ring, there are no other specialised components needed to carry out this kind of welding application using a standard Firefly machine.

The video footage below is from a recent demonstration to a French contractor (Figure 1). In this example, the test work piece is heated using induction heating equipment. The video clip shows welding in two positions - horizontal and overhead. Welding vertically is also possible, but is not shown in this video.

Figure 2 shows close ups of the actual welds from this demonstration.

Firefly is an orbital welding machine designed to improve the productivity of the welder by continually producing a consistent weld result. Firefly orbital welding machine helps to give users a competitive edge in today's ever demanding economic climate.
