horizontal, for storage tanks
The Automatic Girth Welder (AGW) A.K.A. (3:00, 3 O’clock Welder) performs x-ray quality horizontal welds up to 20 times faster than standard manual techniques, cutting in-field welding time for storage tanks by up to 40%.
Operating at speeds from four to 105 inches per minute, the AGW can handle plates as thick as 1 3/4" and tank diameters from the largest to as small as 15’. The adjustable A-frame telescopes manually to handle six- to 10-feet high steel plates.
Ergonomically designed for efficiency, convenience, and accessibility, the AGW includes the Lincoln NA-3 solid state control and welding head fitted with nozzles, wire feed rolls, strengtheners and 50 lb. wire reels for either single or twin-arc wire.
