Fabricator gets a step ahead with machine purchase

A market leader in orbital welding, Orbital Fabrications which specialises in the assembly of gas and fluid handling systems, has become one of the first UK companies to purchase an ARC Machines EPS-1500 welding system, following its launch earlier this month.

Cambridgeshire based Orbital Fabrications is no stranger to ARC Machines having used its products for over 22 years and now has nothing but praise for the EPS-1500. The company says that it has enabled it to adopt a far more flexible method of working.

And the new machine will allow the business to undertake a more diverse range of new projects. Chief executive officer, Philip Pearson, explained: "The EPS-1500 is almost universal because it operates with a cross-section of different manufacturers' weld heads, is compact and has a continuously adjustable weld level instead of a step level. The cost was no more expensive than any other comparable welding system so it was not only a highly viable purchase but has also assisted Orbital Fabrications with future proofing."

Orbital Fabrications supports a diversity of industries including aerospace, electrical, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, fuel cell and automotive sectors. Services range from small scale projects to full turnkey solutions, so flexibility is an important issue. The adaptability of the EPS-1500 means that the firm can now service all these industries with the minimum of change downtime, which allows it to provide a full one-stop-shop service.
