The EMI Orbital Welding System is a full function weld system which includes torch travel, automatic torch height, either linear or pendulum oscillation and either dual or single wire feed. The weld system designed for multi-pass GTAW or GMAW welding. It is lightweight and robust capable of welding diameters of 6” and up or can be configured for flat track.
The EMI Orbital Track System is a light weight positive drive system located within and protected outer case of the track assembly. The EMI tracks can be purchased at significantly lower prices than of our competitor’s tracks, and most any size is available upon request. Mounting of the weld head is accomplished with a simplified docking system that is integral to the track. This approach eliminates misalignment, over stressing and other operator induced variations as with our competitor’s tracks and clamp on weld heads. The track can be secured to the pipe via multiple methods including a very simply chain clamp system which allows the track to be mounted and secured within a matter of minutes.
Standard Configuration Details
Weld Head Weight = Dependent on weld process, typically weight is ~18 pounds
Min O.D. range = 6” (can be 4” with AVC extension)
Nominal Sizes = 6” to 36” with larger sizes including flat track is available.
Radial Clearance = Depending on the head chosen it can be as low as 3.5”
Axial Clearance = Depending on the head chosen it can be a low as 6 inches
Wire Size = Up to .045 (solid or Flux core MIG)
AVC travel = 3 inches (can be customized to most any length)
Oscillator travel = 3 inches (can be customized to most any width)
Weld travel speed = 0.1 to 30 IPM (direct and speed can be changed on the fly)
Jog Speeds = Operator selectable or predetermined and locked
Wire speed = 1 to 600 IPM (process dependent)
Oscillation speed = 30 IPM (for GMAW a pendulum oscillator can be installed)
Oscillation dwell = 0 to 3 seconds
