Orbital Welding

At Fusion Works, we use the GFI orbital welding systems to provide high-quality seamless pipe and tube joining across a broad range of industries.

Orbital Welding is used when a high-quality weld joint is needed. Orbital Welding is most commonly used to create a hygienic, uniform, flat, and smooth root-pass within the pipe. It achieves incredible mechanical strength and precision, which is reflected in the clean aesthetics of the weld seam.

Smooth root-pass is essential when generating equipment for the food processing industry as it alleviates issues with particulates becoming caught in the pipe and allows for thorough sterilisation and cleaning without compromise. Most sanitary pipework is designed to be cleaned and sterilised in-place (CIP/SIP) without being disassembled. For CIP/SIP cleaning to maintain effective results, the inner surface of the piping, including the welds, must be uniform and free of any imperfection that can gather residue and provide a colonisation site for bacteria.

Without the precision that orbital Welding provides in various fitting, piping runs, valve assemblies, and similar joints, CIP would be impractical.

Our GFI orbital welding system is portable and easily used on-site to perform maintenance and alterations to systems minimising downtime to transport costs.
