Orbital welding is gaining importance in modern production

Orbital welding is a fully mechanical protective gas welding process where electrodes – including the arc – are passed 360 degrees around tubular workpieces. The advantages of this are obvious: high process reliability and reproducibility, short production times, consistently high weld seam quality, easy handling of the process and comprehensive documentation.


STW Nördlingen: ORBIMAT 180 SW schweißt Edelstahl-Ventilknoten für Getränkeindustrie

STW Nördlingen gehört zu den wenigen europäischen Herstellern modernster Technik für die Getränkeindustrie. Speziell mit Komponenten rund um Edelstahl-Verrohrungen ist der Mittelständler Weltspitze. Tausende Schweißnähte pro Ventilknoten werden wirtschaftlich wie zuverlässig mit der Orbitaltechnik aus dem Hause Orbitalum realisiert. Dabei kommt jetzt die neue Industrie 4.0-taugliche Stromquelle 180 SW zum Einsatz.


Considerably higher quality with drastically shortened welding times and greatly reduced waste

Using HX-series orbital weld heads from Orbitalum, you can join pipe elbows to small stainless-steel pipes (for example in heat exchanger construction) with a high level of efficiency and reliability. Orbitalum is now expanding this series to include the HX 12P, which is specially designed for very compact fin heat exchangers using pipe diameters from 9.5 to 13.3 mm.


World premiere: Intelligent welding power supply ORBIMAT 180 SW

The new ORBIMAT 180 SW, with its Industry 4.0 technology, promises more quality, safety and flexibility for orbital welding. This intelligent power supply is the first to allow digital networking of man and machine. The orbital welding process thus connects with state-of-the-art information and communication technology, and makes for the best welding results, high efficiency and sustainable quality management.


HX 22P: Welding stainless-steel pipe elbows at the push of a button

Pneumatic clamping – patent for 6-fold higher productivity
Enormous savings, high sustainability

Even with the very first generation of the orbital weld head HX 16, Orbitalum Tools GmbH from Singen in Germany revolutionized the welding of pipe elbows in fin heat exchangers: "HX" stands for heat exchanger. Now the company has perfected its worldwide unique weld head even further and has extended it into a series: At the push of a button the HX 16P and HX 22P clamp themselves on the pipe by means of a patented pneumatic clamping mechanism.
