Taylor-Winfield Technologies released a patented long tank seam welding design. This seam welder is specifically for joining predetermined cylindrical shapes formed from flat sheet material. Benefits include continuous production results in accelerated throughput and less downtime and minimized part-to-part changeover time by completely automating the changeover sequence. The system is Industry 4.0 machine capable with feedback monitoring and parts tracking. The part diameter welding range is 16 in. to 20 in., part gauge range is 0.052 in. to 0.077 in. and part length range is 20 in. to 80 in. The system is capable of welding speeds in excess of 325 ipm.
