STEVENS Spool Welding Robot Reduces Downtime & Improves Weld Quality

STEVENS recently installed a new Spool Welding Robot (SWR) from Novarc. 

This innovative technology in the piping industry will allow STEVENS to increase our throughput and capacity to better serve our clients. 

This means we can take on more of your projects, and improve quality at the same time. 

For example, a hand weld on an 18-inch XH pipe takes over 12 hours. With the SWR, that welding time can be decreased to 33 minutes. 

Here are some other benefits that STEVENS can bring to your piping projects: 

  • The ability to do a fillet weld (one of the only ones with that capability)
  • Non-stop welding. It can do root-to-cap welds without stopping, meaning the job gets done quicker. 
  • Videos of the entire welding process that can be used for QC purposes.
  • We can weld almost any type of pipe material, allowing us to increase the diversity of projects we can handle for our clients.

Most importantly, it allows us to
  • Reduce imperfections
  • Reduce downtime
  • Improve weld quality and decrease defect
