Arc Energy revamps work stations

Arc Energy Resources, a specialist in corrosion and wear resistant weld overlay cladding for the oil & gas, petrochemical and process industries, is completing a comprehensive refit of the work stations at its Gloucestershire factory. Managing director Alan Robinson says new control systems, designed to suit the company’s very specialised requirements, will effectively increase capacity by 25% whilst providing the flexibility to handle a wider variety of projects.
More precise control also allows weld deposits to be laid to much finer tolerances and positioned with greater accuracy. Arc Energy is able to clad components of up to 12 tonnes, even in areas of restricted access such as bores as small as 20mm diameter. At the other extreme, units as large as four metres in diameter can be handled. The factory is also equipped with a 15-tonne gantry crane and work is manipulated on positioners and rolls with capacities from 1-12 tonnes.
