Linear Precision

Since 2002, we have designed and manufactured Fit Up and Growing Line Systems to optimise the production of onshore and offshore monopiles, towers, pipes and tanks.

Innovative growing line systems and automated can joining systems.

Key Plant automated can joining systems enable individual motorised adjustment of each axis under load, the work piece sections can be manipulated left, right, up, down (X, Y, Z axis) to join the cans together.

We manufacture linear precision systems with ball screw operation for smooth precision control and hydraulic options for thin wall material.

Key Plant ACJS systems reduce time & cost, increase customer productivity and gives a consistence to the fitting up and joining of cans.

Wind tower manufacturers

Monopiles, onshore and offshore structures.

Primarily used in wind tower production, Key Plant Fit Up and Growing Line Systems are an innovative, cost-effective solution for increasing your welding and fabrication throughput for large diameter, cylindrical vessels.

Their innovative linear precision function ensures smooth, accurate, fast-aligning, levelling, and fitting up of the cans. They adapt to accommodate varying sizes of the vessel, minimising handling and maximising operator safety.
