How does orbital welding work?

Orbital welding is used when a high-quality weld joint is needed. Orbital Welding is most commonly used to create a hygienic, uniform, flat, and  smooth root-pass within the pipe.

It achieves incredible mechanical  strength and precision, which is reflected in the clean aesthetics of  the weld seam.

Essential for precision
  • Vital in fitting, piping runs, valve assemblies
  • Enables practical use of CIP (Clean-in-Place)

  • Suitable for new installations or maintenance of existing piping systems


Saves time by reducing post-weld grinding and cleaning
Computer programming ensures weld repeatability and reduces labour
Improves the quality and integrity of piping systems

Orbital Welding in the food processing industry

Smooth root-pass is essential when generating equipment for the food processing industry as it alleviates issues with particulates becoming caught in the pipe and allows for thorough sterilisation and cleaning without compromise.

Most sanitary pipework is designed to be cleaned and sterilised in-place (CIP/SIP) without being disassembled.

For CIP/SIP cleaning to maintain effective results, the inner surface of the piping, including the welds, must be uniform and free of any imperfection that can gather residue and provide a colonisation site for bacteria.
