Stress Analysis

We have software that can perform Stress Analysis tests from rendered 3D models, using both static and assembled components.

This enables us to evaluate product structure and design suitability and make alterations to suit various requirements. We can also input various material properties making the system fully customisable.

The advantages of robot welding:

• Faster welding cycle times
• No breaks in production
• Better quality welded product
• Less wasted material
• Consistent weld seam
• Higher precision, flexibility to reach hard-to-reach spots

Flash Butt Welding

Our machines have a capacity of 6mm – 60mm in either square or round material. The main advantages of Flash Butt welding is the speed and the overall strength of the process, there is no foreign weld material used meaning the product can be heat treated afterwards further increasing tensile strength.

The Flash Butt Welding Process

A process commonly used in the production of mooring rings, chain links and lifitng tackle. The surfaces of the work pieces are positioned end to end and are then electronically charged, producing an electric arc that melts and welds the ends of the segments.

Flash Butt Welding is typically divided into 3 stages:

• Preheating
• Flashing
• Upsetting

Preheating is carried out under low welding pressure. Once the welding joint is heated, flashing commences. Joint surface material is burnt off, resulting in an even surface. After arriving at preset flashing loss, upsetting commences, resulting in an irregular "fin" on the surface of the upset metal consisting of molten and oxidized material.

This process achieves the highest possible strength and uses no foreign material in the process.

Tensile Testing

We have a Mayes 4 Column Vertical Universal Tensile Testing Machine (500 KN model) installed at our manufacturing facility, enabling us to complete tests in house.

This saves valuable time in the manufacturing process and can help reduce lead times.
