LJ successfully built the first b-pressure robotic welding system for a major energy company in Alberta, Canada. They originally approached LJ for a solution to their challenging production difficulty which was the following:
-The facility was located in a very remote area, making skilled labor difficult to attain and at a premium cost.
-Fully automated root, fill and cap passes used for pressure pipe are difficult to achieve on a reliable basis. The welding procedure needed to meet "B-pressure" code. (to ASME Section IX, B31.3, and B31.4.)
-The needed an all-in-one purchase experience that included R&D, engineering design, weld procedures, through to manufacturing.

Note: A 30P Pipe Welding Positioner was used for this system.
