With our standardized solution for the automatic production of your prefab fire sprinkler pipes, AWL delivers a high-quality machine with proven technologies and a short payback time. However, standardization does not mean that there no longer is any room for any additional requirements you may have. Naturally, the machine already incorporates your region’s specific standards. But within our solutions, there is always sufficient room for custom work. We develop the solution entirely to your specifications, such as links with software systems, the ability to weld specific brackets or caps, and specific configurations designed to optimize your plant’s logistics.
AWL is a company of choice in a market where short lead times, prices and custom work are essential. The AWL machine enables you to weld up to 60 outlets per hour for the most common prefab configuration. Aside from solutions for welding the outlets onto your fire sprinkler pipes, the AWL machine can also weld end caps and connect pipes together. In addition, we also integrate other robotized processing steps, such as manufacturing custom-made pipes, grooving the pipes and thread cutting the ends of the pipes.
AWL’s robotized welding machine is capable of welding a connection at any desired position on the pipe. Robots work together to cut a hole in the pipe, control the removal of cutting waste, position the connecting nipple and then weld it. The machine is configured in line with your product mix as a result of which the machine is able to weld the outlets, caps and brackets you have specified. Do you have many customers asking for galvanized pipes? We have found the best way of automatically welding outlets to galvanized pipes into the welding machine.
The configurations required for production can be forwarded to the machine via an Excel application. In addition, it is also possible to directly send production data to the machine from your overarching software system. After this, all that is still needed is to load the pipes into the machine. The machine measures the different pipes, searches for the associated order in the production list and then fully automatically produces the pipe. Naturally, marking the pipes also is one of the available options.
