In total, there are four of these huge frame structures that form part of an extensive turnkey system. The special purpose welding rotators are capable of handling extra large diameter vessels and capacities up to 1000 tonnes. The other three frames are being used as part of the load testing phase, prior to shotblasting and paintwork.

The completed system has optimised our customers welding and fabrication throughput to even greater levels. The high precision automated system is engineered to cut manufacturing time by an impressive 60%, improve material handling and ensure safety.
