Pipeweld Orbiter

The following items have been added to your list


The Pipeweld Orbiter is a light weight bug for orbital welding of pipe and pipelines allowing the use of 1 system for diameters of 8" pipe and above without the need to swap the drivetrain. The Pipeweld Orbiter is not sided and the same unit can weld both sides of the joint. The unit has its own wire feed system and torch eliminating the need for secondary feeders, torch hose packs and cables. The only supplies required are control, power and gas resulting in accurate and precise electrode positioning and unrestricted orbital travel.


  • The machine is of lightweight construction to ensure ease of handling by the operator
  • Ability to go in either direction and 360 degrees enables one machine to complete a weld joint, welding direction (up or down) is changed via a rocker switch
  • The on board control box enables a wide range of welding parameters to be stored which are programmed and downloaded from Hand Held Programming Unit (HHPU)
  • The motor, gearboxes, lead screws, and bearings are designed for heavy duty long life
  • All of the software for the HHPU and controller can be upgraded on-site or in-house via e-mail
