The manipulators supplied featured smooth and consistent boom travel and flux delivery and recovery systems to ensure quality seam welds, while the power travel car and rail systems for the manipulators ensured precise alignment and stability. The separate rail system and power travel of the production line turning rolls meant that the growing pipe line was safely and efficiently positioned for on-loading new sections to be welded, and that the final length could be safely moved away from the equipment for off-loading onto a transport vehicle.

Vanguard Welding was able to meet and exceed these requirements, providing a safe, efficient, and economical solution to their fabrication challenge.
